Baron Funds Comments on Grifols SA

August 30, 2012 | About:

From Baron Funds' second quarter commentary:

Grifols SA (NASDAQ:GRFS) manufactures and sells plasma derivative healthcare products to hospitals and physicians globally. Grifols' NASDAQ-traded ADR increased over 24% during the quarter. Grifols' plasma proteins are an essential medical treatment for patients with primary immune deficiency, neurological diseases or hemophilia. Few companies can manufacture these treatments with a high degree of quality and consistency. Healthy demand for the product, coupled with a strong pricing environment, helped Grifols during the quarter.We continue to believe that Grifols will generate strong synergies from its 2011 acquisition of U.S.-based Talecris, and that Grifols will become significantly more profitable going forward.
