Fred Fraenkel, Fairholme’s President and Chief Research Officer, will also participate. The purpose of the call is to give the public the opportunity to engage with the firm, understand its strategies and holdings and raise questions or topics for discussion.
Speaking on behalf of Fairholme, Mr. Berkowitz stated, “At Fairholme we buy deeply undervalued securities in the expectation that the market will eventually come to appreciate our estimation of their underlying intrinsic values. We invest when we have compelling and quantifiable reasons that support a valuation that is far higher than the market currently suspects. This call will provide an opportunity for us to comment on how we are applying this strategy in the current environment and on the intrinsic value we see in our holdings, as well as to address questions that are on the minds of our investors.”
On the call, Mr. Berkowitz will address comments and questions submitted in advance by the public. Fairholme will accept questions and/or comments until Wednesday, January 28 at 5 PM ET. All topics for discussion may be submitted electronically to Ask@fairholme.net. Please note that submissions will remain anonymous. Live stream details and a transcript of the call edited for clarity will be made available at www.fairholmefunds.com.
