Florian Schuhbauer, Managing Partner, Active Ownership Capital, will present his investment thesis on Stada at European Investing Summit 2016, to be held online on October 4-5. Here’s a snapshot of the investment thesis:
STADA ARZNEIMITTEL (Germany: SAZ) is the last major independent generics producer in Western Europe with a growing and highly profitable OTC business. Stada enjoys top three market positions in nearly all countries in which it is present. Over the last ten years, Stada substantially underperformed its peers in all major KPIs and was a prime example of bad corporate governance. With the recent change in governance and the election of a new supervisory board, the retirement of the CEO, and the commitment to upgrade the management team, the company is now in a position to substantially improve its business, earnings, and cash flows. Within three years, the company should increase EBITDA by >50% and operating FCF by >100%.
