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.

DAM conducts in-house research and has a strong global research network. Their investment management philosophy is based on a mid-to-long-term perspective in which they try to identify hidden values which are not yet fully recognized in the market. The firm takes a balanced approach emphasizing both fundamental and quantitative analysis. DAM’s basic assumption is that the market is not fully efficient and they employ a coherent investment process through organizational support at each phase of their 'Plan', 'Do' and 'Review' policy. They pursue stable excess mid-to long-term returns through suitable risk control, which they separate from investment management to ensure that the risk control system adequately monitors their investment process. The firm’s research team analysts and portfolio managers discuss, evaluate and communicate market events and investment opinions, seeking to maximize portfolio performance. Company visits are important components of their bottom-up research process and are a primary source for their fundamental analysis.
