Ian Clark of Dichotomy Capital presented his in-depth investment thesis on Darling Ingredients (NYSE: DAR) at Wide-Moat Investing Summit 2018.

Thesis summary:

Darling Ingredients is a global developer and producer of sustainable ingredients from edible and inedible bio-nutrients. The company has transitioned from a cyclical business whose profits were driven exclusively by the agricultural cycle to a lower-risk business that is less cyclical, while still generating prodigious cash flow.

Darling has several longer-term tailwinds. Chief among them is increased integration of biofuels into the worlds transportation fleets. A largely unknown asset is the Diamond Green Diesel joint venture, of which Darling owns 50%. This JV is capitalizing on Low Carbon Fuel Standard Credits. By Ian’s estimates, Diamond Green Diesel may produce more FCF than the entire core Darling business.

Darling offers investors the opportunity to invest in a business with recurring cash flow and longer-term societal tailwinds.
