Meridian Funds Comments on Broadridge Financial Solutions - Jun 19, 2014

Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (BR) is a leading provider of investor communication and securities processing services. The stock price had been fairly stagnant for a number of years due to temporary softness in its core market and ongoing investments in future growth initiatives that lowered current profitability. In 2013 these headwinds waned, leading to renewed earnings growth, multiple expansion, and strong stock performance.



From Meridian Funds's semi-annual report ended December 31, 2013.
