Guru Investment Theses on Royal Philips NV

Mason Hawkins Comments on Royal Philips NV - Feb 11, 2015

Philips (PHG) fell 18% in the year and 8% in the fourth quarter. The company faced a number of short-term challenges including a one-time pension payment, a temporary suspension of production at its Cleveland, OH-based medical imaging plant, slower emerging market demand, and foreign exchange headwinds. Currency translation from euros into U.S. dollars accounted for approximately half of the price decline. The stock price does not reflect the ongoing transformation of the company under CEO Frans Van Houten who has substantially improved operating margins and focused the company over his 3+ year tenure. Philips’ discounted share price provided management the opportunity to execute another massive €1.5 billion share repurchase. In 2014 Philips announced plans to sell or spin off its Lumiled and auto lighting businesses and to split into two companies: Lighting Solutions and HealthTech, which will be comprised of the current Healthcare and Consumer Lifestyle businesses. We applaud the split. The “conglomerate discount” should disappear as each business stands on its own and is easier to compare to more pure-play peers that trade at higher multiples. Separate reporting will commence in January 2015, and the split is expected to happen by 2016.

Longleaf Partners Fund Comments on Royal Philips NV
Philips (XAMS:PHIA, PHG) declined 7% in the second quarter and 11% YTD. Foreign currency headwinds impacted reported sales, although comparable revenue was flat. Net debt increased as free cash flow (FCF, excess cash from operations) went to a one-time pension payment and share buybacks. A temporary suspension of production at a U.S. healthcare plant also impacted FCF. Management reaffirmed expectations for a “challenging” 2014, comprised of improved results at Consumer and Lighting but a continued drag from Healthcare. Management previously delivered on every aspect of 2013 targets and remains committed to 100-200 additional basis points (1 to 2%) of margin improvement by 2016. At quarter-end, the company announced plans to merge the LED and automotive lighting units into a standalone company with €1.4 billion in revenue and will explore strategic options for outside investment. This advances management’s “Accelerate” plan to concentrate Philips around Health and Wellness and fundamentally increase shareholder value. Read more...
