Diamond Hill Capital, an investment management firm, in its third-quarter 2021 investor letter mentioned SPX FLOW, Inc. (NYSE:FLOW). Here is what the fund said:
“On an individual holdings’ basis, top contributors to return included SPX Flow. SPX Flow, a manufacturer of industrial flow control systems such as pumps, valves and mixers, benefited from news it had been approached by Ingersoll Rand about a possible acquisition. SPX rejected the proposal but is reviewing its strategic options, including interest from two other potential buyers. To us, this is a sign the market still undervalues this quality business but other strategic buyers see the value we do. We are confident management will either hold out for a price reflective of long-term intrinsic value or continue to execute as a standalone company, growing intrinsic value at an attractive rate for years to come.”
