Core competencies are the baseline for continued success of any enterprise. At KMG, our Core Competencies remain:
1) Maximizing free cash flow;
2) Identifying and closing on accretive acquisitions; and
3) Rapidly integrating acquisitions.
This three-step process represents the foundation of our Corporate Growth Strategy. It is a seemingly simple formula, but one that requires focus, discipline and foresight to achieve.
From our Core Competencies, KMG is established as a preferred supplier to our customers, a first-class organization for our employees and an attractive investment for our shareholders.
Since we embarked on our Consolidation Strategy in 1996, we have remained committed to our core purpose, which is to discover and grow value that others overlook. In so doing, we can deliver long-term sustainable growth in earnings per share to our shareholders.
Our acquisition process is very deliberate and disciplined. Our strategy entails finding product lines and businesses that are proven, require minimal R&D, are generally too small to be attractive for larger players and can provide significant market share with a clear path toward market leadership through further acquisition and organic growth. We also look for niche products that have significant barriers to entry and offer potential for margin expansion.
