Third Avenue Management Comments on Vodafone - Jul 23, 2014

Additional shares of Vodafone (VOD) Common were purchased following the completion of the company's sale of its 45% stake in Verizon Wireless to Verizon. This transaction resulted in a significant distribution to shareholders consisting mostly of Verizon common stock and also of cash. Fund Management elected to sell the Verizon shares owing to concerns about slowing growth and increasing completion in the US along with the company's leveraged balance sheet. Vodafone has a very strong financial position and is well positioned to benefit from consolidation in the European telecommunication market and growth in emerging markets. Vodafone Common accounted for 2.5% of the Fund's net assets at quarter end.

Hotchkis & Wiley Comments on Vodafone - Jul 22, 2014

Stock selection in telecommunications also detracted from performance, as our lone position (Vodafone 3.0%*) lagged the market. Vodafone (VOD) reported modest results and a disappointing outlook due to elevated capital expenditures. Vodafone , Bank of America (BAC) (3.3%)*, and Target (TGT) (2.7%)* were the largest individual performance detractors.
