Willis Towers Watson Plc (WLTW): No, ValueAct’s Position Isn’t A New Activist Stake

ValueAct Capital filed a brand new 13D regarding Willis Towers Watson Plc (WLTW) shares this week. This isn’t a brand new activist position though. ValueAct has been holding shares of both Willis Group and Towers Watson before their merger. Now that the merger is completed it filed a brand new 13D to update its position in the new company. According to the filing ValueAct held 8.1 million shares of Willis Towers Watson Plc valued at $962 million at the end of March. By the way, ValueAct had $895 million invested in Willis Group and $93 million invested in Towers Watson at the end of December.

Willis Towers Watson Plc will probably earn close to $8 this year, giving it a price earnings ratio of 14. The stock is trading at a material discount to its peer Marsh & McLennan Companies (MMC) which has a P/E of 18. If WLTW is able to generate synergies from this merger, it should be a good investment over the next 3-4 years. We believe this is a core, long-term position for ValueAct.

ValueAct’s reputation recently took a hit because of its long-term involvement in Valeant as well as the merger deal between Halliburton and Baker Hughes. However, ValueAct has one of the best long-term track records as an activist investor and its investments are generally long-term in nature. That’s why we believe Willis Towers Watson has the potential to beat the market by a large margin over the next 3 years.
