Summary Thesis: Colfax Corporation (Colfax or CFX) is a diversified industrial companies with a strong and sustainable market positioning operating in high growth end markets and regions. It is pursuing the successful business model pioneered by the likes of Danaher and Roper whereby the management is focusing on building, both organically and through acquisitions, a portfolio of highly differentiated products with superior brands and technologies targeting large high growth markets in which performance and quality matter. Through continuous investment in developing internal talent and relentlessly focused on streamlining operations and improving efficiency, the company plans to generate very high EPS growth 25-30% CAGR over the next 3+ years. The guidance seems achievable and it is predicated mainly on cost savings via the integration of the recent transformational Charter acquisition.
