Baron Funds Comments on FleetCor Technologies Inc. - Nov 21, 2013

FleetCor Technologies Inc. (FLT), the payments processor to the vehicle fleet industry, rose 35.5% this quarter and is up 105.3% year-to-date. Earnings grew 35% in the latest quarter driven by double digit organic revenue growth and accretive acquisitions. Late in the quarter, the company announced two significant acquisitions of Brazilian fleet payments companies, which sound very exciting and are in keeping with the company's global expansion strategy.

From Ron Baron’s Baron Funds third quarter 2013 report.

Baron Funds Comments on FleetCor Technologies - Nov 06, 2013

FleetCor Technologies, Inc. (FLT) provides payment processing services to the vehicle fleet industry. The company issues commercial charge cards that businesses provide to their employees to purchase fuel for company vehicles, and it manages private label fuel card programs for major international oil companies. FleetCor's shares rose during the quarter as the company reported better-than-expected earnings results and raised its forward earnings guidance. The company also announced several large acquisitions in Brazil, which we believe should be accretive to its future earnings.

Baron Funds Comments on FleetCor Technologies Inc. - Apr 25, 2013

FleetCor Technologies, Inc. (FLT) is a niche provider of payment processing technology and private label fuel credit cards to companies that operate vehicle fleets and to gas station operators. Its cards allow fleet owners to monitor and control their fuel spend while reducing fraud. FleetCor also manages the fuel card businesses for major oil companies, such as BP and Chevron. The company's shares rose as its organic revenue growth rate increased, and its overall growth rate accelerated even faster as a result of several accretive acquisitions.We expect FleetCor to continue its successful expansion into fast-growing emerging markets, including Russia and Brazil, where fuel cards have low existing penetration rates. In addition, we believe that FleetCor will continue to sign partnerships with major international oil companies to outsource their fuel card programs.

From Baron Funds' first quarter 2013 letter.
