Guru Investment Theses on Gentherm Inc

Mairs & Power Small Cap Fund Comments on Gentherm - May 22, 2015

The largest contributor to performance in the first quarter was Gentherm (THRM) which reported solid year-end results and provided a positive outlook for its core market; heating and cooling technology for automobile seats. Gentherm has been a consistent performer over the past few years as its products have become more of a standard offering as opposed to an upgrade and are now found on many mid-priced models as well as the high end segment. We continue to like Gentherm as the company broadens not only its heated/cooled products for the auto industry, but its pipeline for new products focused on other industries continues to advance and looks promising as well.

Mairs & Power Small Cap Fund Comments on Gentherm - Mar 31, 2015

Gentherm (THRM) (heating and cooling technology primarily utilized in automobile seats) was also a top performer for the year, though the stock was among the lowest performers in the fourth quarter as some of its business is tied to energy efficiency. Longer term, the company still appears well positioned regardless of what happens with oil prices.

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).
