Investment Counselors of Maryland (ICM) offers clients value investment solutions across the market-cap spectrum. In doing so, the firm utilizes two distinct investment processes. Both approaches employ a value-oriented investment method with a focus on fundamental analysis. ICM attempts to measure the value of a security by looking at economic and financial factors including the overall economy, industry conditions, and the financial condition and management of the company itself, to determine if the company is underpriced or overpriced. These two strategies include: Small Cap, SMID Cap & Mid-Cap Value and Large Cap Value.In selecting investments for their Small Cap, SMID Cap & Mid-Cap Value strategies, ICM seeks to invest in companies that they estimate to be undervalued that also possess leading market share positions, shareholder-oriented management teams, and strong balance sheets and cash flow ratios. Usually, the shares of the companies they buy are selling at a price-to-earnings ratio below the average price-to-earnings ratio of the stocks in the broad capitalization-specific indices (i.e. Russell 2000 , Russell 2500 and Russell Midcap). The companies usually have higher return-on-equity and return-on-capital than the average company in those same indices. Using screening parameters such as price-to-earnings, relative return-on-equity and other financial ratios, ICM screens the universe of investments to identify potentially undervalued securities. They further narrow the list of potential investments through traditional fundamental security analysis.For their Large Cap Value strategy, ICM seeks to identify companies that are well-capitalized with sustainable competitive advantages and strong management teams. Using various screening parameters, they seek to identify potentially undervalued securities. ICM further narrows the list of potential investments through traditional fundamental security analysis. Investment are chosen once ICM is convinced the securities are undervalued and after they have attempted to discover a positive inflection point in the company's business momentum. ICM's primary focus is to confirm the competitive position of the company and that it is sufficiently undervalued based on historical valuation parameters, given their projected estimates for earnings and free-cash-flow.

Energy Transfer is a Texas-based company that began in 1995 as a small intrastate natural gas pipeline operator and is now one of the largest and most diversified investment grade master limited partnerships in the United States. Growing from roughly 200 miles of natural gas pipelines in 2002 to approximately 69,000 miles of natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGLs), refined products, and crude oil pipelines today, the Energy Transfer family of partnerships remains dedicated to providing exceptional service to its customers and attractive returns to its investors. Through several recent transformative transactions, we have expanded our scope of services and increased our focus on the transportation of heavier hydrocarbons. While we remain committed to the prolific natural gas industry, we enhanced our diversified portfolio of assets by making a strategic entrance into the NGL business through the acquisition of Louis Dreyfus’ NGL storage, fractionation and transportation operations in 2011. In 2012, we acquired Southern Union Company, a leading diversified natural gas company, which expanded our national footprint and added more than 20,000 miles of gathering and transportation pipelines to our portfolio. More recently, we made a strong entrance into the crude oil and refined products business by acquiring Sunoco, Inc., including its interest in Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. (SXL). These acquisitions, together with our already robust asset base, have enabled Energy Transfer to become a premier provider of services to producers and consumers of natural gas, NGLs, crude oil, and refined products. To improve operating efficiencies within the Energy Transfer family, in October 2012 we formed ETP Holdco Corporation, which is owned 60% by ETE and 40% by ETP and controlled through a majority board membership by ETP. ETP Holdco owns a 100% equity interest in Southern Union Company and Sunoco, Inc. (excluding SXL)
