The firm focuses on minimizing market and other systemic risks to the funds' portfolios. Cadian seeks conservative net beta exposure through alpha generative long and short positions.Although the funds may hold non-diversified and relatively concentrated portfolios, the primary focus of the funds is to invest in common stocks. Opportunities to enhance capital appreciation are pursued through the use of both long and short positions, margin borrowing, derivatives and other instruments or securities. Depending on market conditions and available investment opportunities, the funds' portfolios may be concentrated in some or all of the sectors listed above or, alternatively, the funds may focus on investment opportunities in other unrelated sectors. Cadian may also make use of various hedging techniques that might include, but are not limited to, currency hedging, short sales, and the writing of stock options and options on stock market indices (and/or investing directly in these indices).

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.
