Guru Investment Theses on 21Vianet Group Inc

Baron Funds Comments on 21Vianet Group - Feb 24, 2014

21Vianet Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:VNET) is the largest carrier-neutral Internet data center provider in China. Third quarter results and fourth quarter guidance came in slightly below expectations but management's confidence about demand for cabinets and pricing stayed strong and the entry into cloud-based computing solutions supported the shares. Temasek, Singapore's state- owned investment company, also made a strategic $100 million investment and joined 21Vianet's board, which increased investor confidence. We continue to hold 21Vianet as a direct beneficiary of mobile and Internet traffic growth and derived IT services opportunities in China. (Gilad Shany)
