Recent News & Updates
A More Aggressive Compass Diversified Holdings Could Be Better For Its Shareholders
Supply chain challenges are impacting the business, but Compass' portfolio is largely acyclical and should see strong underlying demand. I still believe both 5.11 and Arnold could ultimately be even stronger contributors to the business than they are today, but more patience will be required. Management has made it clear that they are looking for more growth, with an increased willingness to invest in growth projects at portfolio companies and acquire faster-growing portfolio companies. I'm expecting a somewhat faster pace of growth from Compass, with increased distribution-paying capability down the line, and the shares look undervalued today.
