Guru Investment Theses on Colfax Corp

Chuck Akre Comments on Colfax - Apr 25, 2016

We wrote in the year-end letter about the negative experience the fund had with Colfax (NYSE:CFX) in 2015. Our experience has been more favorable so far in 2016, but we caution that we are not out of the woods yet. The outlook for industrial end-markets around the world, especially in emerging markets, remains uncertain. Nonetheless, some of the pessimism has eased and the stock market has responded accordingly with the share price smartly off the lows of earlier this year. Our original thesis concerning the company and its founding sponsors, Mitchell and Steven Rales, remains unchanged!

Wallace Weitz Comments on Colfax - Jan 22, 2016

Colfax (NYSE:CFX) is a leading manufacturer of pumps, gas handling products and welding equipment. The company was founded by Mitch and Steve Rales, who also founded the Danaher Corporation. They, along with several Danaher alums, created the Colfax Business System (CBS), which is modeled after the highly successful Danaher Business System. CBS is a both a management philosophy and a set of tools based on the concept of continuous improvement. Colfax believes that it can apply CBS to drive organic sales growth and expand margins at its current businesses in addition to future bolt-on and platform acquisitions. Although the company is experiencing declining sales as several of its primary end markets, including oil & gas, power generation and mining are suffering through an extended downturn, we believe that Colfax will manage through this period and emerge larger and stronger.

Chuck Akre Comments on Colfax - Jan 21, 2016

The one short term blemish in an otherwise strongly performing group of businesses in the fund is Colfax (NYSE:CFX). Calendar year 2015 was a year that challenged Colfax significantly. Colfax is a company which we describe as an “asset allocator.” Their model is to acquire critically important industrial businesses which they can improve operationally and reinvest all the excess cash they generate stemming from the improvements they have instituted. True to their mission, management has made important improvements, especially in the welding business in terms of margin improvement. Our belief continues to be that the company’s shares are likely set up for a rebound in the coming year or two.

Baron Funds Comments on Colfax Corp - Mar 24, 2015

Shares of global industrial machinery company Colfax Corp. (CFX) fell in the fourth quarter on reports of weaker-than-expected third quarter earnings and below-consensus 2015 guidance. Shares also declined as the market rotated out of companies such as Colfax with exposure to falling oil and gas pricing, slowing international markets, and headwinds from foreign exchange exposure. We believe Colfax will use its proven business system to improve operations of acquired companies, which we believe will generate substantial shareholder value over time. (Rebecca Ellin)

Baron Growth Fund Comments on Colfax Corp - Oct 24, 2014

Shares of industrial machinery company Colfax Corp. (CFX) fell in the wake of weaker-than-expected second quarter results. Strong margins in welding were offset by operational missteps in the legacy fluid handling business combined with a weak macro environment. Colfax recently announced a new president for the fluid handling business, and we expect this business to get back on track soon. We believe that Colfax will continue to use its proven business strategy to improve operations at acquired companies, generating substantial shareholder value over time. (Rebecca Ellin)
