Company Description

Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc. is one of the largest distributors of residential and non-residential roofing and complementary building products in North America. We currently consist of 13 regional companies in 38 states and 6 Canadian Provinces with 229 locations and more than 2,800 employees. We are known throughout the building supply industry for having quality people, quality service and quality building products. Beacon’s mission is to be the leading North American supplier to commercial and residential roofing and exterior building contractors through a family of long-established regional suppliers and to add value to our contractor customers' businesses, to our employees' careers, to our investors' assets, and to our suppliers' products. Our local branches stock a comprehensive product line that caters to their markets. In addition to roofing, local product offerings can include windows, siding, decking, waterproofing and many other external building products. Our status as a leader in our industry allows us to develop strong partnerships with leading brand manufacturers and to stock an unmatched supply of the professional components necessary for the quality, timely completion of our contractor-customers projects. We provide our customers with a comprehensive array of value-added services which distinguish us from our competition. We have earned a reputation for excellent employees, professionalism and high-quality service. We believe that quality service does not end with the delivery of materials – it ends with the successful completion of the project. As a result, “partnerships” are formed between Beacon branches and our customers that go beyond the industry norm. Beacon has grown by expanding its existing regions and by making strategic acquisitions. Our business is well-balanced between new and re-roof applications in both residential and commercial markets. A highly scalable platform, a proven business model, results-oriented management and a strong people-focused corporate culture give us a solid foundation for continued growth. Beacon Roofing Supply is publicly traded on the NASDAQ stock market under the symbol BECN. In June of 2006 Beacon Roofing Supply was named to the NASDAQ Global Select Market

Iridian Asset Management is an independently owned, value-oriented investment management firm focused on active equity investment strategies for institutional investors, including foundations and endowments, corporate and public pension funds, sub-advised and Taft Hartley funds. As of September 30, 2012, assets under management totalled $7.7 billion in U.S. mid-cap, large-cap and small-cap equity strategies. Iridian was founded in 1996 by David Cohen and Harold Levy, two seasoned investment professionals who have worked side-by-side in the investment industry for over 20 years. Our unique "private business value" approach to investing, which drives our mid-cap and large-cap strategies, has its roots in their early investment careers, which encompassed direct experience in private equity, venture capital, distressed debt and bankruptcy takeovers. In analyzing investment opportunities, our founders learned the importance of focusing on cash-related metrics and in-depth, critical assessment of a company's management — two key factors that have been fundamental in shaping a shared and distinctive investment philosophy. In December 2009, the co-portfolio management team of Jordan D. Alexander and Stephen A. Friscia, Jr. joined Iridian to manage a Small-Cap Value strategy. Jordan and Stephen have worked together since 1998 and have co-managed small cap value strategies as a team since 2000. Today, Iridian is built around a collaborative team of experienced investment professionals managing a range of traditional investment strategies for institutional investors.

FTAM uses both fundamental and quantitative research as methods of analysis for their investment strategies; however, their investment approach does not fall into either the traditional fundamental or quantitative categories. The firm believes that while stock markets are efficient most of the time, behavioral anomalies can arise under certain circumstances, resulting in exploitable mispricing opportunities. FTAM’s strategies primarily invest in US listed companies and are a long only or a long/short strategy and may employ futures, ETFs and leverage. Their investment strategies include small-cap growth, small-cap value, small-cap core, behavioral small-cap equity, mid-cap value, micro-cap, low volatility behavioral equity market neutral and behavioral unconstrained equity.

Maverick Capital’s investment process is driven by intensive, fundamental bottom-up research. They deploy capital to individual investment opportunities that it believes offer the highest returns relative to risk, regardless of index weightings, market capitalization or style orientations. Their research is augmented by a top-down view of individual industries, as well as the efforts of their quantitative research team. While fundamentals still drive security selection, the quantitative research effort plays an important role in Maverick’s portfolio construction, security selection and risk management. The firm’s investment team is organized into six industry sector teams: Consumer, Financials, Healthcare, Industrials, Media & Telecom and Technology. The industry sector teams are supported by two discipline research teams: private investments and quantitative. The firm’s founder – Lee S. Ainslie III – has ultimate responsibility for all portfolio decisions for Maverick Funds and related Separate Account Clients.
