Guru Investment Theses on Generac Holdings Inc

Ron Baron Comments on Generac Holdings Inc - Jul 28, 2014

Shares of Generac Holdings, Inc. (GNRC), a manufacturer of stand-by generators, fell in the second quarter after the company reported first quarter earnings below Street expectations. The company cited difficult winter weather as a reason sales missed expectations and reiterated full year guidance, despite the quarterly miss. Weather created strong demand for Generac generators, but delayed timely installations. We continue to like Generac, based on its dominant market share in an underpenetrated market. In addition, we believe management will be successful in growing the company into a diversified, global back-up power generation business. (Rebecca Ellin)

Generac Holdings, Inc. (GNRC) manufactures standby and portable generators for the residential, commercial, and industrial markets.The company performed well in the second quarter, as it announced a recapitalization and, concurrently, completed the refinancing of its debt and paid shareholders a $5 per share special dividend. Generac's strong sales, margins, and cash flow enabled this return of capital to shareholders for the second year in a row. (Rebecca Ellin)

Generac Holdings, Inc. (GNRC) is a leading designer and manufacturer of standby and portable generators for the residential, industrial, and commercial markets. Generac outperformed in the fourth quarter, as the company is expected to benefit from the sustained power outages related to Hurricane Sandy.
