Why do we like the investment?
We like the transparent and innovative management team led by the straight-talking CEO who is part of the company’s controlling family. It is a business that in many ways has mirrored Asia’s development progressing from manufacturing watch parts a few decades ago to parts for Apple iPhones today. Their net cash balance sheet and diversification by product and manufacturing locations feels to us like an appropriate way of running a cyclical business. We are optimistic that the company can continue to grow alongside its core customers while exploring alternative end-markets in the electronics industry, backed by its reputation for high quality standards.
