Schneider's holding in PDL now stands at 3.846 million shares or 28.3% of the company, up from 27.2% previously.
Schneider has nearly doubled its holding in PDL since it first made a stand in the market for 15% of the company in February at $5.20.
Following Schneider's entry Hong Kong-based Gold Peak Industries also began buying shares and the price of the company has risen to around $10.00 from $3.70 at the start of the year.
Gold Peak was recently ordered by the High Court to sell just over 2% of its holding after Schneider alleged the company had breached the Securities Amendment Act.
The shares are to be sold by tender.
