Robert Robotti presented his in-depth investment thesis on Subsea 7 (Oslo: SUBC) at Wide-Moat Investing Summit 2015.

Subsea 7 is Robotti & Company’s highest conviction investment idea. The firm believes that the shares will more than double within two to three years. Subsea 7 is a global leader in a niche industry with a sustainable competitive advantage. The market underestimates the barriers to entry shared by the 3 Tier-1 competitors. The dislocation of oil prices should accelerate consolidation opportunities and further differentiate the Tier-1 competitors. Backlog dynamics are in place to create a runway for significant growth. Shares of the business today trade at a single-digit multiple of current and normalized earnings. Note the disclosure and disclaimer contained in the presentation available below.
