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.

London Company offers multiple distinct investment strategies, all relatively concentrated with low annual turnover. Each strategy is created from the same, universal investment process. Their guiding principles for their investment philosophy include: focus on cash return on tangible capital, not earnings per share; the value of a company is determined by cash inflows and outflows discounted by the optimal cost of capital; and optimal diversification is essential to favorable investment results. The firm utilizes a differentiated conservative investment process focused on bottom up, fundamental analysis, utilizing a proprietary balance sheet optimization model and following a risk controlled sell discipline. They primarily seek the following characteristics: high return on capital, consistent free cash flow generation, predictability and stability, and conservative valuations. The firm screens for these primary characteristics and then the investment team will review and possibly seeks potential purchase candidates from the screen. The team will exercise further fundamental and qualitative analysis on selected candidates, in addition to estimating intrinsic values by performing an internal balance sheet optimization analysis, as well as adjusting to market other company assets that may provide further downside protection. The company’s management, incentives, actions, capital allocation decisions and corporate governance structure to ascertain whether or not management’s interests are aligned with shareholders are also evaluated by the investment team.

What Is Costco? We are a membership warehouse club, dedicated to bringing our members the best possible prices on quality brand-name merchandise. With hundreds of locations worldwide, Costco provides a wide selection of merchandise, plus the convenience of specialty departments and exclusive member services, all designed to make your shopping experience a pleasurable one. The History of Costco The company's first location, opened in 1976 under the Price Club name, was in a converted airplane hangar on Morena Boulevard in San Diego. Originally serving only small businesses, the company found it could achieve far greater buying clout by also serving a selected audience of non-business members. With that change, the growth of the warehouse club industry was off and running. In 1983, the first Costco warehouse location was opened in Seattle. Costco became the first company ever to grow from zero to $3 billion in sales in less than six years. When Costco and Price Club merged in 1993, the combined company, operating under the name PriceCostco, had 206 locations generating $16 billion in annual sales. Our operating philosophy has been simple. Keep costs down and pass the savings on to our members. Our large membership base and tremendous buying power, combined with our never-ending quest for efficiency, result in the best possible prices for our members. Since resuming the Costco name in 1997, the company has grown worldwide with total sales in recent fiscal years exceeding $64 billion
