MVP's value investment process is based on the belief that the stock market is often inefficient in the short term resulting in a deviation between a company’s stock price and the fair value of its underlying assets. As these market inefficiencies can be exploited, the goal of the company's investment process is to identify and invest in companies that trade at a discount to their fair value and that are also associated with catalysts that will cause the share price to align with underlying value, generally over a 3-5 year time horizon. Specifically, the Company invests for the long-term in companies with strong, defend-able business models selling at a discount to our researched intrinsic value as private owners. As business fundamentals are believed to drive share prices over the long term and these factors are best assessed within a bottom-up company, industry, and sector framework, MVP utilizes a consistent and repeatable investment process grounded in fundamental, bottom-up analysis to identify such companies. The firm believes that a keen understanding of the competitive landscape and company dynamics that drive competitive advantage and economic moat results in the identification of companies offering superior value and appreciation potential. Consistent with the overall value investment process, the company employs a bottom-up sell discipline that includes selling when a stock reaches its estimated intrinsic value, or all catalysts are realized, or the company violates its investment thesis, or if a stock is superseded by an opportunity that offers greater return potential.
