Cooke & Bieler employs a traditional, conservative, domestic equity, value investment strategy. They generally employ a long-term approach, rather than engaging in trading or speculative investment strategies. Cooke & Bieler are active, bottom-up managers who study the fundamental characteristics of companies and the industries in which they operate to reach a conclusion on their quality and intrinsic value. Their security analysis also emphasizes research meetings and interviews with corporate management. The firm seeks to take advantage of short-term but fixable problems, either industry-wide or in specific investee companies. The quality characteristics they insist on allow management time to fix internal issues, to outlast competitors in consolidating industries, or to take advantage of economic cycles. Cooke & Bieler believes that their explicit focus on price and quality differentiates them from other value oriented managers. They base their valuation on ten years of projected cash flow plus a terminal value, and our historical holding period has been 3 to 5 years. Cooke & Bieler provide investment advice with respect to the following strategies: Large Cap Value, Mid Cap Value, All Cap Value, Small Cap Value, SMID Cap Value and Balanced.

Timucuan Asset Management (TAM) manages capital in a concentrated, value-oriented style. The firm seeks to achieve maximum long term capital growth for their clients through the ownership of outstanding business enterprises. TAM's investment strategy is based on the belief of investing in businesses, not the market. The management team of a company under analysis must demonstrate a history of integrity in aligning their interests with those of their shareholders, while making intelligent capital allocation decisions. The firm then assesses the underlying strength of the franchise and its competitive advantages. TAM seeks to own such a business only if it may be purchased at a market price that represents a substantial discount to its intrinsic value. The firm also manages wrap fee accounts with the same objective and using the same approach.TAM's discretionary separate client accounts typically target a concentrated portfolio of 12 to 18 businesses, with expected average holding periods of 3 to 5 five years. Some client accounts also include an allocation to government, corporate or municipal bonds. The Timucuan Fund, and to a lesser extent Timucuan Opportunity Fund, also invest in these same core positions, but each fund also makes some investments in private placements of restricted securities and in other securities not held in client accounts, with Timucuan Opportunity Fund investing in publicly traded stocks primarily within the small-cap asset class.
