Company Description

Today, Brunswick is a market leader in the marine, fitness, and bowling and billiards industries. We have made a commitment to focus our efforts on our core businesses and, as a result, have drawn upon decades of experience to design, build and market world-class recreational products. No company has Brunswick’s breadth and scope in the marine industry. No company rivals Brunswick’s quality and innovation in fitness equipment. And no company possesses Brunswick’s knowledge and heritage in bowling and billiards. As evidenced by our current portfolio of businesses, we are a different company today than we were 165 years, 25 years or even five years ago, and we have an ambitious road before us. Despite our evolution, two fundamentals remain consistent: • Our goal to be the best—and all it entails—in any industry in which we participate. • Our ability to create and unlock value in our varying portfolio of businesses

Cantillon Capital Management seeks long term capital appreciation by investing in a globally diversified portfolio of equities and equity-related securities, which includes securities of emerging markets issues which are listed or traded on recognized exchanges. The firm believes that there is a direct relationship between a company's long term sustainable financial productivity (SFP) and its intrinsic value. Financial productivity is a measure of the profits a company generates for a given level of investment in the business. Cantillon strives to generate positive rates of return by investing in companies which generate high levels of SFP and whose listed securities trade at a discount to their intrinsic value. Cantillon Capital Management's investments primarily include equities and equity-related securities which are listed or traded on a recognized exchange, which includes common and preferred stock, exchange-traded options on equities, equity warrants and convertible securities in all countries, including emerging markets issues. The firm may also invest in corporate and government fixed-income securities (investment grade, high yield and not rated), spot and forward currency contracts, reverse repurchase agreements for efficient portfolio management, and ETFs, that offer exposure to industries, regions or emerging stock markets.

Lakewood Capital Management Lakewood employs a fundamental investing approach that seeks to exploit inefficient pricings in equities and fixed income securities. The firm seeks to capitalize on the best risk/reward opportunities across many diverse industries, geographies and securities. Their strategies include Long Equity, Short Equity and Long Fixed Income.Lakewood's long equity positions generally consist of securities they believe have the potential for significant capital appreciation over a multi-year horizon with minimal degree of capital loss. Common themes consist of companies that are out of favor, subject to forced selling or liquidation, complex, undergoing change or uncertainty, misunderstood or underappreciated by the market. Target investments include companies with severe price declines, spin-offs, IPOs, under-followed companies, restructurings, reorganizations and companies with hidden assets.The firm's short equity positions consist of securities Lakewood believes are trading at significant premiums to intrinsic value and are likely to decrease in value in the near to intermediate-term. Lakewood's short equity strategy focuses: companies that are undergoing temporary increases in earnings that the firm believes are being misinterpreted by the market and/or companies with deceptive practices and/or misleading or fraudulent management teams.Lakewood's fixed income positions generally consist of securities in which they can earn attractive cash returns on its investment or establish an attractive post-reorganization equity buy-in price, providing for equity-like returns with a good risk profile. The firm invests in stressed high grade bonds, high yield/distressed bonds, convertible notes/bonds and preferred stock. These positions are typically found in companies that are out of favor, subjected to forced selling or liquidation, undergoing an industry rationalization or fixing their capital structure despite relatively healthy underlying operations.
