Meridian Funds Comments on Huron Consulting

May 23, 2013 | About:

Huron Consulting (HURN), one of our larger holdings, is a leading provider of consulting services to the healthcare, higher education and legal markets. The company advises hospitals and universities on ways to cut costs, gain efficiencies and improve outcomes. Legal consulting helps companies reduce their outside legal costs. New management led Huron back from a sizable earnings restatement in 2009 with limited consultant turnover and its reputation intact. The company's healthcare practice benefits from the need for hospitals to become more efficient due to lower reimbursement rates, sluggish patient volumes and less high margin elective procedures. Hospitals will also need external advice in adapting to the changes enacted under the Affordable Care Act, including the shift from a fee-for-services payment model to pay-for-performance. We believe the company is a compelling value at 11x our $3.70 estimate of earnings power.
