KEELEY Small Cap Value Fund Comments on Sanchez Energy - Oct 31, 2014

Sanchez Energy (SN) proved to be the largest detractor during the quarter, falling over 30 percent and costing the Fund 40 basis points of performance. Although the company issued $300 million in senior notes during the quarter for an acquisition that doubled its Eagle Ford Shale acreage, there appeared to be no fundamental reason for the decline. We remain committed to the sector and continue to believe our companies are well positioned for the secular growth opportunities that we think lie ahead.
