Bill Nygren Comments on BMC Software

October 08, 2013 | About:

We have discussed our thoughts on the Discovery and Dell sales in past letters, but we did receive a worthy update on BMC (BMC) since we sold it in the fourth quarter of 2012. Recall that BMC management conducted a strategic review during the second quarter that we owned the stock and decided to remain an independent company. Given the lack of a compelling purchase offer for BMC during the review, we exited our position because we no longer believed it was selling at a significant discount to private market value. Our opinion has since been validated. On September 10, 2013, BMC management sold the company for $46.25 per share—roughly 12% above our average sale price. During that same time, the Oakmark Select Fund and the S&P 500 returned 25% and 20%, respectively—both well in excess of BMC’s modest price increase.

From Bill Nygren's Oakmark Select Fund third quarter 2013 commentary.
