Guru Investment Theses on Acuity Brands Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Acuity Brands Inc. - Jan 14, 2016

We also own Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE:AYI), which provides LED lighting systems for commercial real estate facilities. After our initial purchase in 2011, the stock dropped off sharply after an earnings miss. We used the weakness to significantly increase our position. At the time of purchase, Acuity’s revenues were $1.7 billion. Annual revenues have since grown. to $2.7 billion.With its strong brands, extensive network, and expertise in complex lighting schemes, we think Acuity will benefit from the construction trend in energy-smart buildings and the growing number of buildings being retrofit with energy efficient lighting systems.

Baron Funds Comments on Acuity Brands Inc - Jul 22, 2014

Acuity Brands, Inc. (AYI), which provides LED lighting systems for commercial real estate facilities, typifies our fallen angel investments. After our initial purchase in 2011, the stock dropped off sharply in reaction to an earnings miss. We used the weakness to significantly increase our position in Acuity. Since then, the stock has more than doubled. The company has an extensive distribution network and expertise in complex lighting schemes that is unparalleled in the industry, and we think it will continue to take market share in the growing number of commercial buildings being retrofit with energy efficient lighting systems.

Baron Funds Comments on Acuity Brands - May 05, 2014

Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE:AYI), the leading domestic provider of lighting solutions, is benefitting from secular demand for more energy efficiency and the trend to retrofit to LED lighting. The shares gained 21% in the quarter after the company posted strong results. Revenues grew 19.5%, led by LED sales which doubled and now comprise more than a quarter of the company's sales. We see a long runway of growth for Acuity since the LED revolution is early in its development and will



accelerate as the cost of LED decline, making the lamps more affordable. Plus, we think non-residential construction is rebounding, so the cyclical backdrop is also improving.
