During the quarter we increased our investment in Multi-Color Corporation ( NASDAQ:LABL ), a leading label company, after a significant decline in share prices following quarterly results short of Street estimates. While we are attracted to the unusual stability of Multi-Color's business, we were encouraged by management's proactive decision to exit a modest amount of low-margin business during the quarter and continue to view the company as a very high-quality compounder at an attractive valuation. With a very fragmented label industry around the world and Multi-Color's strong cash flows and stellar management team, the company remains very well-positioned to continue growing organically and inorganically across the globe.
