JPMorgan Investment Management's (JPMIM) investment approach is based on the premise that building an information advantage and capitalizing on it through active management is the key to investment success. The firm employs global fundamental research, quantitative valuation tools and bottom-up portfolio construction methods. Research analysts evaluate the US market by sector, while globally-based portfolio managers and analysts cover the international capital markets. JPMIM integrates the skills of their research analysts with those of experienced portfolio managers and economists to leverage information and choose the most fundamentally attractive investments. Investments are managed by teams, with portfolio managers working closely with research analysts. Portfolio managers typically purchase first and second quintile stocks while underweighting third, fourth and fifth quintile stocks. JPMIM looks for the stocks and ADRs of US and non-US companies with leadership positions in specialty niches, long-life product cycles, competitive cost structures, diversified client bases and significant insider ownership.

ValueAct Capital was initially formed in June 2000 to manage the capital of its three founders, along with the capital of a limited number of outside investors, in an investment strategy that combines intensive due diligence, a concentrated number of investments, and active, constructive involvement in the value creation at those investments. Today, with offices in San Francisco and Boston, ValueAct Capital manages more than $8.0 billion on behalf of some of the world's most respected institutional and individual investors. ValueAct Capital concentrates on acquiring significant ownership stakes in a limited number of companies that it believes are fundamentally undervalued. The investment team seeks to identify companies that are out of favor, or may be undergoing significant transition. Such companies may be temporarily mispriced for a variety of reasons, including perceived unfavorable industry conditions, poor business performance, changes in management or ownership, reorganizations, or other external factors. These conditions can often result in fundamentally "good" businesses that are available at depressed valuations. The goal in each investment is to work productively with management and/or the company's board to implement a strategy or strategies that maximize returns for all shareholders. ValueAct Capital is typically one of the largest independent shareholders at each of its core company investments and works in a constructive manner with management and/or the company's board to successfully implement strategies that generate superior returns on invested capital. The seven investment partners have extensive experience working effectively with portfolio companies as long-term large shareholders, and oftentimes as members of the companies' boards. At any given time, the portfolio consists of ten to eighteen core company investments, as well as a small "farm team" of additional investments in development.
