Generally one of the largest shareholders and works constructively with management and the company’s board to implement value-creating strategies.

ValueAct Capital concentrates on acquiring significant ownership stakes in a limited number of companies that it believes are undervalued. 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.

ValueAct Capital is typically one of the largest independent shareholders at each of its core investments. The goal in each investment is to work constructively with management and/or the company's board to implement a strategy or strategies that maximize returns for all shareholders. The 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.
