“We realized losses in One Group Hospitality Inc. (“STKS”), which had recently posted impressive same store sales in Q4-19 and was largely tracking to our bull case. However, Q4-19 performance was made irrelevant by the spread of COVID-19. The pandemic has decimated travel and tourism, which is particularly important for STKS’ Las Vegas and Orlando locations. Combine a worst-case macro environment with financial and operational leverage, and it was clear we needed to exit the position.”
