Guru Investment Theses on Symantec Corp

Third Avenue Management Comments on Symantec - Jul 23, 2014

Symantec (SYMC) operates in security software and IT storage management businesses with its well-known brands, such as Norton. Recently, it has experienced management turnover, with its second CEO terminated by the Board in as many years. The surprise announcement was due to what appears to be slower than expected execution of a previously announced new strategy. The company had already started to embark on its new strategy to improve growth capabilities, including restructuring the sales force and eliminating duplicative organizational and operating structures. While not central to our original investment thesis, we have long thought that the company's businesses seem separable and saleable. Strategic firms could be potentially interested in its various businesses, though it could also be interesting to private equity firms given the strong cash flow characteristics of the business.
