••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Guru Investment Theses on Colfax Corp

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)

Chuck Akre Comments on Colfax Corporation - Jul 23, 2014

Colfax Corporation (“Colfax”) (NASDAQ: CFX)



Market Cap: $9.2 billion (as of 6/30/14)



Company overview:



Colfax (CFX) is a multi-platform industrial engineering and manufacturing company with a focus on two product areas: (1) gas & fluid handling, and (2) welding. The company was founded in 1995 by Steven and Mitchell Rales, best known as the founders of Danaher Corporation, and it has grown to its current size through a combination of acquisitions and organic growth. In 2012, Colfax completed the transformative acquisition of Charter International PLC, a UK-based industrial conglomerate many times its size, increasing revenues overnight from $700 million to $4 billion.



Akre Focus Fund Investment:



The Fund purchased its first shares of Colfax in July 2012 and continues to add opportunistically. Colfax is a core portfolio company for the Fund and as of June 2014 represents 10.4% of the portfolio.



Investment thesis:



We believe the heart and soul of Colfax is a set of operational and management tools known as the Colfax Business System (CBS) which stresses continuous improvement in all aspects of the business. Danaher fine-tuned the use of these tools, compounding shareholder capital at a 20%+ Compound Annual Growth Rate, (CAGR) since 1984 by acquiring underperforming businesses, improving revenue, margins and cash flow, and employing that cash flow to fund the next acquisition. Colfax has borrowed the Danaher playbook.



Colfax specializes in non-commoditized, niche industrial end- markets, in which they are the dominant competitor, selling highly technical, often mission-critical, products with significant aftermarket sales and service potential (>50% CFX revenue currently), with an attractive geographic footprint (>50% CFX revenue is in emerging markets, 80% non-US). All of Colfax’s acquisitions are evaluated based on anticipated ROE which includes the expected benefits of the CBS.



This playbook forms the basis for the business and reinvestment legs of our “three-legged stool.” The business leg is a combination of the CBS and the high-quality, highly efficient businesses Colfax owns. The “people” leg of the stool is comprised of the Rales brothers and the fact that the majority of Colfax’s senior executives were formerly employed by Danaher, including CEO Steve Simms, CFO Scott Brannon, and EVP Strategy & M&A Dan Pryor.



The Investment Examples included herein have been selected based on objective, non-performance based selection criteria, solely to provide general examples of the research and investment processes of the Fund. The Investment Examples should not be construed as an indicator of the future performance. The information presented above should not be considered a recommendation to purchase or sell any particular security. There can be no assurance that any securities discussed herein will be a part of the Fund’s portfolio or, if sold, will not be repurchased.

Baron Funds Comments on Colfax Corp - May 02, 2014

Shares of Colfax Corp. (NYSE:CFX), an industrial machinery company focused on infrastructure, increased as the market reacted favorably to its announcement of the $947 million acquisition of Victor Technologies, Inc., a U.S.-based welding company. Victor expands the product portfolio of Colfax's existing welding business, and it increases the combined entity's exposure to the higher margin U.S. market. The deal is consistent with Colfax's strategy to make bolt-on acquisitions in existing platforms that serve to profitably enhance the company's growth prospects, and we are optimistic that the deal will create long-term shareholder value.

Chuck Akre Comments on Colfax Corp. - Mar 25, 2014

The only other business included in the top ten which we have not previously mentioned is Colfax Corp. (CFX). This is a manufacturing company whose business model is to acquire other manufacturing business and rationalize them in such a way as to importantly improve their operating results. The management of Colfax Corp. has demonstrated this skill at another company with which we are familiar, and we believe we have an important opportunity here, hence a top ten holding.

Baron Funds Comments on Colfax Corp. - Aug 02, 2013

Colfax Corp. (NYSE:CFX) is a diversified global industrial manufacturing and engineering company that provides gas and fluid handling technology products. Shares of Colfax increased given investors' growing confidence that the company will, in fact, recognize significant synergies from its recent acquisition of Charter International plc.We believe these financial synergies will be achieved despite the challenging near-term outlook for organic growth in Charter's welding and gas handling markets. In addition, Colfax recently completed a small secondary equity offering, which indicated that the company may pursue another attractive acquisition.

Traded in other countries:C52.Germany,
Colfax Corp was organized as a Delaware corporation in 1998. It is a supplier of fluid handling products. The Company design, manufacture, install and maintain gas- and fluid-handling products for use in a wide range of markets, including power generation, oil, gas and petrochemical, mining, marine (including defense) and general industrial and other. Their gas-handling products are principally marketed under the Howden brand name. The fluid-handling products are marketed by Colfax Fluid Handling under a portfolio of brands including Allweiler and Imo. Colfax Fluid Handling is a supplier of a broad range of fluid-handling products, including pumps, fluid-handling systems and controls, and specialty valves. They are the manufacturer of rotary positive displacement pumps with a broad product portfolio and globally recognized brands.
