Company Description

Since the 1960s, Dolby Laboratories has been a leader in audio innovation. Beginning with Dolby® noise reduction, a form of audio compression and expansion that reduces background hiss in tape recording, Dolby Laboratories has developed many groundbreaking technologies, advancing the science of audio reproduction. Early on, Dolby decided that the company would manufacture professional audio products only, and license technologies that were appropriate for consumer applications. Since then, many Dolby innovations have set the bar for entertainment technology in both the professional and consumer markets. From the cinema to your living room, Dolby has transformed the entertainment experience. Today, Dolby technologies can be found in cinemas, professional recording studios, video games, laser discs, DVDs, mobile media, digital broadcast TV, digital cable, and satellite systems

JSP seeks to add value primarily through securities selection. They apply a rigorous fundamental research process to identify common stocks of companies that they believe have long-term capital appreciation potential and are expected to grow faster than the local economy. Securities are generally selected on the basis of their potential for long-term capital growth. Using a bottom-up approach , the portfolio managers seek to select securities they believe have large end market potential or dominance of a profitable niche market, superior business models, and strong free cash flow generation that are attractively priced compared to the intrinsic value of the securities. They also consider a company's operational efficiencies, management's plans for capital allocation, and the company's shareholder orientation. JSP generally pursues an investment strategy of long-term capital growth.

Atlanta Capital offers investment advisory services in a variety of equity, fixed income and mixed-asset strategies. In-depth bottom-up fundamental analysis is the primary basis for their investment decision making process. The firm seeks to achieve above-average long-term risk adjusted returns through emphasis on high quality equity or debt instruments judged by Atlanta Capital to have unrecognized value or investment potential. For equities, high quality is generally measured by a company’s demonstrated history of consistent growth and stability in earnings. For debt instruments, high quality typically relates to the probability of repayment (credit risk) and the predictability of when principal repayment will occur (stability of cash flow).
