  8. 8. 6 Insights from 25 Years of Value Investing Have a well-thought-out investment strategy • Focus on carefully defined universe of investment prospects • Stay with what you know well (“area of competence”) • Stay with what you can analyze • Invest, don’t speculate Be consistent, disciplined, persistent and patient • Have conviction based on knowledge and your own on-going due diligence • Do your homework as if you are buying the whole business • Read / Call / Visit - crunch numbers and kick the tires first! • Be stingy - Wait until the opportunity falls into your lap. Stick to a pre-determined valuation level, don’t chase stocks • Don’t be greedy - Scale-out at a pre-determined valuation level • Don’t use leverage - Not in your portfolio, and stay away from levered companies • Concentrate funds on your highest conviction ideas And most importantly… • Be honest and transparent with your investors, company executives of your investment positions, and partners/team members of your firm
  9. 9. 7 Insights from 25 Years of Constructive Shareholder Activism Our Approach: 1) Work with management behind the scenes as much as possible 2) Maintain liquidity to allow trading and to sell 3) Maintain constructive, respectful dialogue with management Our Objective: Enhance and accelerate process of shareholder value creation while retaining liquidity Our Process: • Build strong rapport with CEO/CFO through multiple on-site and face-to- face meetings • Propose win-win solutions for management and shareholders • Submit proposals in writing to CEO and, as needed, to the Board of Directors • Broaden discussion of proposals, as appropriate, to include other large shareholders, financial media and private equity groups
  10. 10. 8 Tailor-made proposals to unlock value addressing any of the following areas: • Investor Relations: messaging, access, crafting 3-year earnings road map • Use of Capital: dividend, share buyback, debt repayment, CAPEX, M&A • Corporate Structure: sell underperformers, splits or spins, streamlining • Operational: restructuring to close gap to top peers in relation to profit margins, working capital, management changes at operational or C-level, etc. • Corporate Governance: critical review of executive compensation, board make-up, corporate costs, etc. Insights from 25 Years of Constructive Shareholder Activism

  16. 16. 14 Baker Hughes Business Description • Third largest oilfield services companies in the world after Halliburton and Schlumberger. • Leading provider of completion services, specialty chemicals, drill bits and artificial lift, both onshore and offshore. • Global infrastructure with 50% of revenues derived from faster growing international markets. Thesis • Broad based opportunity for self help to enhance profitability and cash flow through better execution in the field and more efficient use of capital. • Will generate meaningful free cash flow for the first time in several years through enhanced profitability, increased emphasis on working capital efficiency and lower CAPEX. • North America (“NA”) margin improvement: BHI will begin to close gap with peers in the critical NA market as it fully digests the 2010 BJ Services acquisitions and as it realizes the benefits of continuing infrastructure investment. • Improvement in $6 billion pressure pumping operations has begun. • International profits continue to improve. • Improvement in operating management: recent high-level hires from Halliburton and Schlumberger.
  17. 17. 15 Baker Hughes Catalysts • We are in an active dialogue with management on ways to improve shareholder value. • Improved capital allocation: pay down debt; sizeable share repurchases likely in 2014; no more large acquisitions. • Better working capital efficiency and free cash flow beginning in H2-2013, more in 2014. • Proposed Investor Day to be held shortly: to present a credible roadmap to achieve EPS of $5.50+ by 2016. Recent Developments • Reported Q2-2013 earnings with solid progress across the board masked by problem with LatAm unit. • Improving NA operations as manifested by improved utilization of the Pressure Pumping fleet. Price Target • $71/share based on 12x 2014e EBIT, representing 43% upside potential. Note: As of September 13, 2013.

  20. 20. 18 Faurecia Business Description • Leading global supplier of automotive emission control technologies, seating, interior and exterior systems. • Global footprint to serve global platforms: factories and R&D centers in North America, Europe, Brazil and China. • German OEMs account for 38% of product sales, North American 29%, French 21%, Asian 7%. • Peugeot S.A (“PSA”) owns 57% of Faurecia but are entirely separate businesses. Thesis • Margins to recover from 3.0% in 2012 to over 4% in 2015 due to restructuring in Europe, improved operational performance in North America and operating leverage. • $50 billion order book due to strong R&D efforts. • Inter-dependence of Faurecia and PSA is overstated. PSA accounts for just 12% of Faurecia’s sales. • De-leveraging with a target Net Debt: EBITDA ratio of 0.5x versus 1.8x at December 2012.
  21. 21. 19 Faurecia Catalysts • Strong earnings growth, supported by large backlog. • Conversion of €460 million of convertible bonds will reduce the leverage ratio by 0.4 points and dilute PSA’s ownership to below 50%. • European production (LVP) picking up: each incremental point of LVP is +€20 million or +4% to Faurecia’s EBIT. • PSA divestment of Faurecia stake becoming more likely. Recent Developments • Better-than-expected Q2-2013 results and net debt. • Outlook for European light vehicle production (LVP) improving: I H S expect 19.5 million units in 2014, +4% year-over-year. • New highly regarded CFO from REXEL S.A. and formerly Valeo. Target Price • €31/share in 12-18 months based on 9.0x 2014e EBIT and 0.30x EV/sales, representing 41% upside. Note: As of September 13, 2013.

  24. 24. 22 ITOCHU Techno-Solutions Business Description • Japan’s third largest IT service provider. • Strong clientele includes Telecommunication (e.g., KDDI, NTT DoCoMo), Retail (e.g., Familymart) and Manufacturing (e.g., Nissan Motor). • The company has strength in building IT system infrastructure using localized CISCO & ORACLE products as well as offering maintenance/operation services. Thesis • IT spending recovery in Japan – after sluggish IT spending over the past several years, Japanese corporations have finally started spending on IT (+9% year-over-year, BOJ June Tankan Survey). • Recurring revenues through Service – 40% of total sales are from maintenance/operation sales with 35-40% gross margins under multi-year contracts from a broad installed base. • Healthy balance sheet – ¥47 billion of net-cash (25% of Market Cap). • Laggard with attractive valuation – the share price has been a laggard since last November; ITOCHU Techno is down 17% vs TOPIX +59% vs Nomura Research (#2 IT service provider) +89%. • Trades at 5.2x FY2015 (ends March) EBIT vs. Nomura Research at 9.1x.
  25. 25. 23 ITOCHU Techno-Solutions Catalysts • We are in active dialogue with management to enhance shareholder value. • Continuing strong order intake through IT spending recovery in Japan. • Unleashing pent-up demand from Telecommunication customers. • Share buybacks / accretive M&A. Recent Developments • Reported weaker-than-expected Q1-FY2014 results in late July due to one-off sales recognition timing from Telecommunication customers as well as the rapid yen depreciation, order backlog remains solid and grew 11% year-over-year. Target Price • ¥5,800/share in 12-18 months based on 10x FY2015e (ends March) EBIT, representing 65% upside potential. Note: As of September 13, 2013.

  28. 28. 26 Lanxess Business Description • Leading global maker of Performance Polymers - critical partner to the global tire industry in formulating high performance rubber compounds that reduce tire rolling resistance, saving fuel and reducing emissions. • Advanced Intermediates - unique, integrated network of plants, supplying a broad array of customers with aromatics, chiefly in agricultural chemicals. • Performance Chemicals - seven distinct specialty chemicals businesses; key franchises are in inorganic pigments, leather, rubber and water chemistry. Thesis • A proven management team: CEO led LXS since IPO in 2005 completing a comprehensive portfolio restructuring and instilling a price-over-volume strategy. • 2013 profits are not the “new normal”, we expect a solid rebound in 2014. • Attractive growth pipeline underpinning 2013-2016 earnings progress. • Despite industry capacity built, supply/demand in LXS key rubber grades should remain balanced. • Pent-up demand for replacement tires globally. • Green tire legislation should accelerate demand for high performance rubbers. • Current share price below replacement value.
  29. 29. 27 Lanxess Catalysts • We are in active dialogue with management to enhance shareholder value. • Strategy update on September 18/19 – likely to introduce an efficiency program to boost profitability. • Ramp-up of Singapore plant was headwind in 2013, will turn to tailwind in 2014. • Further countries adopting tire labeling legislation. • Improving demand for replacement tires is starting to take hold. Recent Developments • While reporting weak H1-2013 results and lowering guidance, company re-reiterated that 2014 will see a substantial recovery and retained 2018 goal of $1.8 billion EBITDA. • Improving market environment: - Positive outlook statements by global tire makers indicates that replacement tire demand is improving. - Recovery in key commodity prices (butadiene, natural rubber) suggests that de-stocking phase in global tire industry may have come to an end. Target Price • €75/share in 12-18 months based on 11x 2015e EBIT, representing 45% upside potential. Note: As of September 13, 2013.

Thesis • HAR is at an inflection point: embarking on a period of sustainable higher sales growth and profitability. • $20 billion order backlog highlights HAR’s position with the automakers and anchors its earnings outlook. • EPS likely to grow at up to 30% CAGR for the next three years. • Margin expansion as higher margin scalable software based infotainment systems become a larger part of the mix and profitability in other segments improves. • Infotainment business benefits from high barriers to entry as software emphasis provide a technological and cost advantage. • HAR has proven its reliability and its OE relationships are sticky.
  33. 33. 31 Harman Catalysts • We are in active dialogue with management to enhance shareholder value. • Rapid adoption of infotainment systems due to consumer preference for the connected car. • HAR is a potential take out candidate, with GOOG, APPL, Bosch, SIRI potential buyers.

Recent Developments • Long term financial targets point to a 3 year earnings CAGR of 25%+. • Backlog grew 25% over the last 13 months ended July to $20 billion. • A new $200 million share repurchase authorization and doubling of dividend in June.
