Vulcan Value Partners Small Cap Strategy
Invests in companies with smaller market capitalizations. Subject to price, any publicly traded company with what we believe are above average economics that is not large (as defined by the Russell 1000 Index) would be a potential investment in this portfolio. A core position is 5% so that theoretically we would hold 20 names diversified across various industries. It is very rare that enough companies are sufficiently discounted in our opinion to warrant this level of concentration, so concentration will vary with our estimate of the price to value ratio. We will invest in positions as small as 1% when price to value ratios are higher. We will not invest in any business that is trading above our estimate of fair value.

One team. One philosophy. One process.
Evaluating investment opportunities is a process; one we undertake with discipline and intentionality. Our primary objective is to minimize risk. We have always believed that by concentrating on not losing money, making money should take care of itself. We also analyze a company’s competitive strengths to ensure it meets our intended investment horizon of five years. Finally, we assess the human element, understanding that we are investing in real businesses run by real people facing real issues. We are not traders or speculators. We want to be long-term owners in a collection of superior business enterprises.

The Russell 2000® Index includes the 2000 firms from the Russell 3000® Index with the smallest market capitalizations. The Russell 2000® Value Index measures the performance of those Russell 2000 companies with lower price-to-book ratios and lower forecasted growth values. Index figures do not reflect deductions for any fees, expenses, or taxes. Investors cannot invest directly in an index.
Holdings are subject to change. The top holdings, as well as other data, are as of the period indicated and should not be considered a recommendation to purchase, hold, or sell any particular security. There is no assurance that any of the securities noted will remain in a portfolio at the time you receive this fact sheet. Actual holding and percentage allocation in individual client portfolios may vary and are subject to change. It should not be assumed that any of the holdings discussed were or will prove to be profitable or that the investment recommendations or decisions we make in the future will be profitable. A list of all securities held in this portfolio in the prior year is available upon request.
The performance presented is for our Small Cap Composite. The model composite portfolio performance figures reflect the deduction of brokerage or other commissions and the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. Past performance is no guarantee of future results, and we may not achieve our return goal. We have presented returns gross of fees and net of fees. Gross of fees returns are calculated gross of management and custodial fees and net of transaction costs. Net of fees returns are calculated net of management fees and transaction costs and gross of custodian fees, taken at the highest applicable fee. The performance figures do not reflect the deduction of any taxes an investor might pay on distributions or redemptions. Our standard fees are presented in Part II of our ADV. There may be market or economic conditions which affect our performance or that of our relevant benchmarks. Market conditions can vary widely over time and can result in a loss in portfolio value. Vulcan buys concentrated positions for our portfolios, averaging 5% in our model portfolios, which may make our performance more volatile than that of our benchmark indices, and our performance may diverge from an index, positively or negatively, as a result. Our focus is on long term capital appreciation, so our clients should consider at least a five year time horizon for an investment with Vulcan.
