Guru Investment Theses on Helix Energy Solutions Group Inc

KEELEY Small Cap Value Fund Comments on Helix Energy Solutions Group Inc - May 22, 2015

Although energy stocks did not have a material impact on our results during the quarter, Helix Energy Solutions (HLX) was the Fund’s leading detractor after falling over 37 percent and detracting 38 basis points of return from the Fund. Despite having exposure to longer-term, offshore energy projects, Helix was not immune to price pressure given the dramatic weakness in the price of oil. With continued uncertainty around the price of the commodity, coupled with the fact that Helix and other service providers may be more vulnerable to an extended decline, we decided to exit the position during the quarter.
