Wally Weitz Comments on LiLAC Group Guru stock highlight
LiLAC Group (NASDAQ:LILA) is a tracking stock distributed by Liberty Global with respect to its businesses in Latin America and the Caribbean. LiLAC’s stock has struggled throughout the last year as management revealed additional unanticipated headaches with the May 2016 acquisition of Cable & Wireless Communications. After meeting with management, we believe the company understands the nature of the problem and is set to grow from this reset base. We anticipate that in the coming quarters, LiLAC will demonstrate the benefits they saw in this acquisition, beginning with identifying operating synergies for investors. Management further demonstrated their confidence in their revised outlook by announcing a $300 million stock repurchase authorization. Read more...

Wally Weitz Comments on Berkshire Hathaway Guru stock highlight
LiLAC Group (NASDAQ:LILA) is a tracking stock distributed by Liberty Global during the third calendar quarter of 2015 designed to provide an avenue to tap growth opporutnities available in Latin America and the Caribbean. In May of 2016, Liberty Global closed its acquisition of Cable & Wireless Communications and attributed the operations to LiLAC Group. The consideration paid included new shares of both the Latin American and European tracking stocks. To compensate the European tracker stockholders, Liberty Global received a 67% intergroup stake in LiLAC. In an effort to remove this complexity and restore the Latin America tracker to full public ownership, Liberty Global announced on June 2 the intergroup stake would be distributed directly to shareholders. Shares were subsequently pressured, as many shareholders either sold short the new LiLAC shares before they were received or sold outright after the distribution. As the selling pressure abated, shares fell again after LiLAC missed earnings expectations in the most recent quarter. Read more...
