Guru Investment Theses on DigitalGlobe Inc

Baron Funds Comments on DigitalGlobe - May 12, 2014

Shares of DigitalGlobe, Inc. (DGI), a satellite imagery provider, decreased during the first quarter as it missed earnings and lowered guidance for the 2014 fiscal year. The company experienced an unexpected slowdown in the commercial side of its business, due largely to emerging markets project delays, as well as a slight delay in the launch timing of a new imagery satellite. We believe that DigitalGlobe has a unique satellite constellation and imagery database, and has numerous opportunities to increase growth going forward. (Randy Gwirtzman)

Baron Funds Comments on DigitalGlobe - May 05, 2014

DigitalGlobe, Inc. (DGI), a satellite imaging provider, fell 29% in the quarter after lowering their earnings outlook. The company experienced a slowdown in its commercial segment due to deferrals in projects in emerging markets. Also, the launch of a new satellite was delayed, which will push out profits. On the positive side, they reported continued success integrating their major acquisition and cost savings have expanded. Though this year's numbers will be soft, we believe that 2015 will be a banner year and expect continued cash flow growth beyond. We still like the situation, and, as a result, added to our position.

Baron Funds Comments on DigitalGlobe Inc. - Jun 10, 2013

DigitalGlobe, Inc. (DGI) operates a fleet of high orbit satellites that sell high resolution unclassified earth images to government and commercial clients. In early 2013, DGI completed the acquisition of its direct competitor (GeoEye) to create a dominant position in its niche. We believe there are enormous cost savings from combining two like companies and future capital requirements will be greatly reduced as well, since the company owns extra spare capacity that will be needed for growth and replacement.

An important element of our excitement is the new management team that joined DGI a year ago and is overseeing the company. The CEO is a former senior executive at a very well-respected database company (owned by the Baron Funds) and we believe he will transition the business from being primarily a provider of one-off services for governments to selling unique subscription services to government and commercial ventures. We believe that the company will be able to organically grow its revenues by a third and double its cash flow. Applying a higher trading multiple, halfway between satellite info services businesses, we can see a stock price target twice where we purchased our position. The stock was already a winner prior to our purchase, but better late than never.
