Champlain Investment Partners focuses on investment strategies that seek to provide superior absolute returns and manage risk. The firm begins their investment process with a defined universe of established and profitable small- and mid-cap companies. They use distinct sector-specific factors to discriminate against various business risks. The firm seeks to reduce business risk by looking at various financial attributes, business model attributes and management characteristics, focusing on companies with high returns, strong cash flow, low capital requirements, above average potential for growth and effective management. For those companies that pass through the first two phases of this process, Champlain conducts a fair value analysis. They evaluate relative value and historical transactions, discounted cash flow and strategic or franchise value. Finally, they look at a company's fundamentals and competitive environment to help them understand if current expectations about long-term earnings power are too optimistic or too pessimistic. The firm strives to buy only companies at a discount to their assessment of fair value, thereby creating a margin of safety. Champlain will sell a stock trading above what they have identified as its fair value.
