ValueAct Capital was initially formed in June 2000 to manage the capital of its three founders, along with the capital of a limited number of outside investors, in an investment strategy that combines intensive due diligence, a concentrated number of investments, and active, constructive involvement in the value creation at those investments. Today, with offices in San Francisco and Boston, ValueAct Capital manages more than $8.0 billion on behalf of some of the world's most respected institutional and individual investors. ValueAct Capital concentrates on acquiring significant ownership stakes in a limited number of companies that it believes are fundamentally undervalued. The investment team seeks to identify companies that are out of favor, or may be undergoing significant transition. Such companies may be temporarily mispriced for a variety of reasons, including perceived unfavorable industry conditions, poor business performance, changes in management or ownership, reorganizations, or other external factors. These conditions can often result in fundamentally "good" businesses that are available at depressed valuations. The goal in each investment is to work productively with management and/or the company's board to implement a strategy or strategies that maximize returns for all shareholders. ValueAct Capital is typically one of the largest independent shareholders at each of its core company investments and works in a constructive manner with management and/or the company's board to successfully implement strategies that generate superior returns on invested capital. The seven investment partners have extensive experience working effectively with portfolio companies as long-term large shareholders, and oftentimes as members of the companies' boards. At any given time, the portfolio consists of ten to eighteen core company investments, as well as a small "farm team" of additional investments in development.

LSV Asset Management is a quantitative value equity manager that provides active investment management for institutional investors through the application of proprietary investment models. The firm's investment approach is based on the premise that superior long-term results can be achieved by systematically exploiting the judgmental biases and behavioral weaknesses that influence the decisions of many investors. LSV uses a strictly quantitative investment model to identify out-of-favor (undervalued) stocks that have the potential for near-term appreciation. Their portfolios typically have a deep value orientation relative to the indices. Market timing is not part of LSV's process and portfolios are generally fully invested with cash levels usually below 2 percent. LSV selects individual securities using a bottom-up, quantitative approach. All of their investment strategies use the same approach with investments segmented into different market-cap ranges and/or geographic regions. Portfolio turnover is approximately 30 percent for each strategy. LSV also offers socially responsible investment portfolios and has a strict policy against using soft dollars.
