KEELEY Mid Cap Value Fund Comments on Timken Co

July 30, 2014 | About:

The Fund’s best performing industrial name during the quarter was Timken Co. (TKR), which climbed over 15 percent and added 32 basis points of performance to the Fund. The company recently spun-off its steel business after heavy pressure from activist firm Relational Investors. This breakup created TimkenSteel (TMST) a company with approximately $1.7 billion in revenue. Now, the former parent, Timken, can focus on its core bearings and transmission business, while the steel company can move forward with its own distinct strategy for growth. We believe the stand alone companies will allow investors to recognize the unique value proposition that each one offers while still leveraging the original synergies that existed between both units.

From John Keeley (Trades, Portfolio)’s KEELEY Mid Cap Value Fund Second Quarter 2014 Commentary.
