Guru Investment Theses on Gentherm Inc

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



Gentherm (THRM), a manufacturer of automobile seat heating and cooling equipment, contributed the most to outperformance for the six-month and second-quarter periods, through June 30, returning 65.80% and 28.02%, respectively. Gentherm continues to benefit from increased inclusion of its products on Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) auto platforms as well as from other applications of its proprietary technology (consider how welcome heated seats would have been during Minnesota’s brush with the Polar Vortex last winter).

Business Description

Industry: »
Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:QA4A.Germany
Gentherm Inc formerly known as Amerigon Inc, was incorporated in 1991 under the laws of the State of Michigan. The Company is a supplier of thermal seat comfort and cable systems to the global automotive industry. It designs, develops, manufactures and markets proprietary thermal seat comfort systems and cable systems for sale to automobile and truck original equipment manufacturers ('OEMs'). Since the initial introduction of CCS it has introduced new designs that incorporated improvements in electrical efficiency, size, weight, noise and versatility. These include its Micro Thermal Module ('MTM') technology, its CCS II configuration, and a heated and ventilated only variant of the CCS ('HV'). The HV relies on the use of ambient cabin air to provide cooling comfort instead of a thermo electric device ('TED'), like that found on its MTM and CCS II products. The Company has also introduced an automotive heated and cooled cup holder and a heated and cooled suite of luxury mattresses to its product portfolio based on technology similar to that of the CCS system. The cup holder has been designed to be packaged in multiple configurations to accommodate different console environments. In addition to requiring low power consumption, it has proven automotive grade ruggedness, high reliability and drink retention features. The Company is also engaged in a program to improve the efficiency of TEDs and to develop market and distribute new products based on this technology. Included in this initiative is the development and testing of new materials that show increased thermoelectric efficiency. On May 16, 2011, it acquired a majority interest in W.E.T., a German publicly traded company based in Odelzhausen, Germany. W.E.T.'s primary product categories include automotive seat comfort systems and specialized automotive cable systems. The automotive seat comfort systems category includes automotive seat heaters, climate comfort systems (similar to Gentherm's climate controlled seat technology) for automotive seats, automotive steering wheel heater systems and integrated electronic components. The specialized automotive cable systems category includes ready-made wire harnesses and related wiring products. W.E.T.'s primary customers are also Tier 1 suppliers and automotive OEMs. W.E.T. also offers product solutions to other customer groups, namely customer groups related to seat heating equipment for the automotive aftermarket, ski lifts and sports stadiums and the production of ventilation systems for the automotive and various other industries. It mainly sells directly to seat manufacturers. Its five largest customers are Johnson Controls, Lear Corporation, Magna, Sanyo and Dymos. Its business exists mainly in the major automotive markets of North America, Europe and Asia.
