Longleaf Partners Small-Cap Fund Comments on Dreamworks Animation - Feb 22, 2017

DreamWorks Animation (NASDAQ:DWA) (+55%, 5.06%), the film studio and multimedia company, was the Fund’s largest contributor for the year. We sold the position in the second quarter after Comcast announced an all cash acquisition for $41 per share. We started buying DreamWorks in the third quarter of 2014 at $19 per share following disappointing new movie releases. Our appraisal hinged on the valuable film library and DreamWorks’ growing success in TV and web content, as well as licensing. We partnered with a strong board led by Chairman Mellody Hobson and owner-operator CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, who built the company’s brands, developed a presence in China, managed costs, and ultimately monetized the company at full value with a 104% return for the Fund during our two year holding period.

From Longleaf Partners Small-Cap Fund fourth-quarter 2016 commentary.
