Southeastern Asset Management is a value-oriented, bottom-up manager. The firm seeks to achieve superior long-term performance by acquiring equity securities of financially strong, well-managed companies run by capable management teams, at market prices significantly below their assessment of their business value. Southeastern sells stocks when they approach their appraisal. The firm considers companies of all sizes, although most of their assets are invested in mid-size and larger companies. Southeastern Asset Management is an activist firm and is included in the SharkWatch50 as one the 50 most prominent activist investors.The firm focuses on securities of companies believed to have unrecognized intrinsic value and the potential to grow. Corporate intrinsic value is determined through securities analysis and the use of established disciplines consistently applied over long periods of time. Southeastern requires at least a 40% market value discount from their appraisal of an issuer's intrinsic value before purchasing the security.To determine intrinsic value, current publicly available financial statements are carefully reviewed and two primary methods of appraisal are applied. The first assesses what Hawkins believes to be the real economic value of the issuers net assets; the second examines the issuer's ability to generate free cash flow after required or maintenance capital expenditures. After free cash flow is determined, conservative projections about the rate of future growth are made. The present value of that stream of cash flow plus its terminal value is then calculated using a discount rate based on expected interest rates. In a concluding analysis, the asset value determination and/or the discounted free cash flow value are compared with business transactions of comparable corporations. Other considerations used in selecting potential investments include the following: indications of shareholder-oriented management; evidence of financial strength; and potential earnings improvement.
