Wasatch International Growth Investing Philosophy

Wasatch is most interested in finding companies with following characteristics: Potential for significant and sustained revenue and earnings growth; experienced, proven management team; high return on capital; sustainable competitive advantage; market leadership and/or growing market share; ability to capitalize on favorable long-term trends; strong financial health and controls; reasonable use of debt; attractive valuation. The fund applies a bottom-up process of fundamental analysis to look for individual companies that the managers believe are high-quality, stable, and have the potential to grow earnings for long periods of time. To determine that a company has these characteristics, Wasatch takes the following approach: (1) Screening Using financial databases (2) Deep Due Diligence: The fund applies thorough and collaborative processes to understand the companies in which it invests. (3) Earnings Models: The fund builds proprietary earnings models in order to analyze a company's key growth drivers. (4) Valuation: The fund considers a variety of appropriate valuation metrics (e.g. Price to Earnings, Enterprise Value to EBITDA, Price to Book, etc.) to assess the potential return and the risk/reward trade-off of each stock.
