Investment Strategy

According to the brochure submitted to IAPD, Trian Funds investment strategy is as follows:

The Adviser typically invests in public companies with attractive business models that it believes trade significantly below intrinsic value primarily due to operating underperformance and/or under-management. The Adviser looks to work constructively with management and boards of directors to execute the Adviser’s strategic and operational initiatives designed to increase the long-term earnings power of the company. The Adviser seeks to reach its price objective for each investment primarily by increasing earnings and cash flow (higher sales, lower expenses), and not by financial engineering (e.g., leveraged recapitalization or “break-up” of the company) or assumed multiple expansion. Generally, the Adviser does not invest in companies that have a controlling shareholder, or in those companies that it believes are more susceptible to exogenous risk factors, such as technological obsolescence.

Methods of Analysis

In addition, Trian Funds methods of analysis include:

Trian’s Funds invest primarily in publicly-traded equity securities. However, under the terms of the offering documents the Funds are generally permitted to invest in a broad range of securities and instruments, including, without limitation, U.S. and non-U.S. equity and equity-related securities (including distressed investments), bonds, bank debt and other fixed income investments, futures, forward contracts, warrants, options, repurchase agreements, reverse repurchase agreements, bankruptcy and trade claims, swaps and other derivative instruments, currencies, commodities, money market securities and other cash equivalents. The Funds generally may take either long or short positions and many of the Funds may use leverage in connection with their activities. There can be no assurance that the investment objective of the Funds will be achieved.
