Guru Investment Theses on Landauer Inc

Mairs & Power Small Cap Fund Comments on Landauer - Jul 31, 2014



In contrast, the radiation detection firm Landauer (LDR) proved to be the biggest laggard in the first half of the year. However, a number of recent regulatory changes that address shortfalls in U.S. hospital radiation monitoring appear likely to provide the company with an opportunity to turn their stock performance around.

Business Description

Industry: Computer Hardware » Scientific & Technical Instruments
Compare:A, ROP, GRMN, HXGBY, TRMB » details
Traded in other countries:LDU.Germany,
Landauer Inc is a Delaware corporation organized on December 22, 1987. The Company is a provider of technical and analytical services to determine occupational and environmental radiation exposure and is the domestic provider of outsourced medical physics services. Its two main business segments are Radiation Monitoring and Medical Physics. It provides complete radiation dosimetry services to hospitals, medical and dental offices, universities, national laboratories, nuclear facilities and other industries in which radiation poses a potential threat to employees. Landauers services include the manufacture of various types of radiation detection monitors, the distribution and collection of the monitors to and from customers, and the analysis and reporting of exposure findings. In addition to providing analytical services, the Company may lease or sell dosimetry detectors and reading equipment to large customers that want to manage their own dosimetry programs, or into smaller international markets in which it is not economical to establish a direct service. Through its Global Physics Solutions, Inc. subsidiary, the Company provides medical physics services. Through its IZI Medical Products, LLC subsidiary, the Company provides medical consumable accessories used in radiology, radiation therapy, and image guided surgery procedures. The Company offers its service for measuring the dosages of x-ray, gamma radiation and other penetrating ionizing radiations to which the wearer has been exposed, primarily through badges, which contain optically stimulated luminescent material, which are worn by customer personnel. The Company conducts business in numerous international markets such as Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Japan, Mexico, Sweden and the United Kingdom. In the United States, Landauer competes against a number of dosimetry service providers. One of these providers is a division of Mirion Technologies. Other competitors in the United States that provide dosimetry services tend to be smaller companies, some of which operate on a regional basis. The Company complies with federal, state and local provisions that have been enacted or adopted regulating the discharge of materials into the environment or otherwise protecting the environment.
