Guru Investment Theses on SouFun Holdings Ltd

Wasatch International Growth Fund Comments on SouFun Holdings Ltd - Aug 11, 2014

SouFun Holdings Ltd. (SFUN) was another detractor from Fund performance in the period. The company operates an online-listing site for real estate in China. The online listing of properties is still in its infancy in China, as the industry is currently dominated by offline brokerage firms. SouFun is the best-known online broker, and the company recently lowered its pricing to increase competitiveness and grow the business. The price cut has hurt the company’s valuation, though we still see the online-listing business growing quickly, as consumers shift away from traditional offline competitors. (Current and future holdings are subject to risk.)
