  8. Sell Recommendation • Thesis: Although we believe Dollar Tree will remain a strong company, we believe that our investment thesis has largely played out and there are better opportunities. Market saturation, lack of areas for growth, and the current overvalued price lead us to believe that it is the right time to sell.

  9. Dollar Tree Company Overview Products Description • Operates discount variety stores in 47 states and 5 Canadian provinces • Headquartered in Chesapeake, VA • 82,000 worldwide employees • Offer consumable merchandise, including candy and food, and health and beauty care, as well as household consumables, such as paper, plastics, household chemicals, and frozen and refrigerated food • Unique concept of “everything’s $1.00 or less” and encourage the “Thrill of the Hunt” • Primary growth drivers are same-store sales (sales results for stores open for over one year) and new store openings • Target market is low income individuals. 40% of their customer base uses government assistance vs. Stores • 4,671 stores between the U.S. and Canada • Average store size is approx. 10-12 thousand square feet • Located near “big box” discounters

  10. Dollar Tree Competitors Dollar General Corp. Family Dollar Stores, Inc. • U.S. chain of variety stores headquartered in Goodlettsville, TN • Founded in 1939 • Most of its products are priced at more than $1.00 • However, goods are usually sold at set price points from penny items up to $50 • Currently operates 10,600 domestic stores • Regional chain of variety stores headquartered in Matthews, NC • Founded in 1959 • Family Dollar is also not a true "dollar store" in the strict sense • However, approximately 90% of its products cost less than $10 • Currently operates 7,500 domestic stores

  11. Dollar Tree Competitors Cont. Dollarama, Inc. Store Locations • Canadian chain of variety stores headquartered in Montreal • Founded in 1992 • The majority of items are priced at $1.00 or less although in early 2009 Dollaramaintroduced items priced up to $2.00 • Now the company has items at the $3.00 price point as well • Currently operates 785 stores in Canada and is looking to expand into Central America

  12. Sell News September 25th, 2013 – Goldman Sachs Removes DLTR from Conviction Buy List • Still maintained the view that DLTR was well positioned to benefit from consumers’ increasing focus on value • “With only 12% upside to our price target following the stock’s relative outperformance vs. the S&P 500, we believe a place on the conviction list is no longer warranted.” September 17th, 2013 - $2 billion Share Repurchase Plan Announced • Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $2bn of common stock from shareholders • A private placement of $750mm of senior notes along with $250mm of cash will fund the first $1bn through an accelerated share repurchase June 10th - COO Adds Role As President • Dollar Tree promoted Gary Philbin to President and COO • Philbin has served as COO since 2007

  13. Sell Rationale Market Saturation Lack of Room for Innovation • Same store sales growth decreasing significantly • moving towards US GDP of 2% • Dollar Tree believes it has passed 66% market saturation • New competition: • Five Below • Wal-Mart’s new <50,000 square foot stores • Business model of dollar stores is limited • Limited to inventory that can be sold for $1 • Ideas for innovation include frozen foods and strategic placement of impulse buy items Graph of comparable same store sales here

  14. Sell Rationale Cont. Lack of Pricing Power Business Model Does Not Carry Over to E-Commerce • E-commerce is an increasingly vital aspect of retail • Dollar Tree has not been able to successfully translate its business to an online platform • Existing website has been a flop so far • Minimum order sizes require customers to spend much more than $1 on things they most likely would not want more than 1 of • Everything is $1 • Today’s inflation at 2% and long term average inflation over the past 100 years at 3.22% • Company may have to increase price, lower margins, or supply lower quality products • Stores under new brand name “Deals” • Recognition that $1 model may not be sustainable in the long run

  15. Sell Rationale Cont. Buy Rational has Played Out Lack of International Exposure (and No Plans to Change) • Operates in the US and Canada • Management has not mentioned any plans to expand the company into any other markets • Europe has been less receptive to dollar store model • Larger opportunities for growth may be in markets outside the United States • We bought Dollar Tree heading into the recession, believing that the economic downturn would be beneficial for the company’s growth • 250% return on our investment • The U.S. economy is improving and we are not longer in a recession

  16. Sell Risks Frozen Products and “Impulse Buys” Strong Recent Growth • Over half of Dollar Tree stores have added freezers to sell frozen foods • Increases foot traffic • Could lead to an increase in sales • Company also working on strategic placement of “impulse buys” • We do not believe these will be a large revenue drivers • Increased sales, operating margin, return on shareholder’s equity and EPS • Increasing dividend, share buybacks, and new store openings • Management thinks there is room for 2,000 more stores in the US and 500 in Canada Global Economic Difficulties • Deep discounters greatly benefitted from the recession • 40% of dollar-store customers rely on some for of government assistance • Uncertainty about the economy – Fed tapering?

  17. “We don’t find bargains around but we don’t think things are way overvalued either. We’re having a hard time finding things to buy”. -Warren Buffet Screening What We Looked For Status of Current Holdings • Companies engaged in entertainment, media, clothing, accessories, home decoration, and gaming • Sufficient diversification to reduce unsystematic risk • Reasonable trading multiples • Insider buying activity • History of high ROE • Market leaders • Strong barriers to entry • Strong pricing power • Exposure to currently untapped industries such as” • Autos • Lodging and hotels Other Top Choices • Pros: growth potential in international markets and franchising model • Cons: cyclical nature of the hotel industry and possibility of technological advances hurting companies focused on the business traveler • Pros: rising interest rates would benefit financing arm, high average age of American cars, superior management of its pension obligation • Cons: cyclical nature of the auto industry and questions about some of Ford’s product lines Who We Spoke To • Our alumni advisor • Encouraged us to think about the core of what makes a good investment: growth potential and appropriate margin of safety • Emphasized the importance of understanding how a company works, discussing various business models • Several other contacts in the finance industry • Gave us a few potential companies

  18. Buy Recommendation • Thesis: Polaris is a strong company with market leadership, barriers to entry, high returns on equity and a growing portfolio of exciting brands. The company has a proven track record of performance and we believe the company is positioned for continued growth.

Arctic Cat Our thoughts • Arctic Cat is $3.1 billion company that designs, engineers, manufactures and markets snowmobiles and all-terrain vehicles and recreational off-highway vehicles under the Arctic Cat brand name, as well as related parts, garments and accessories • The Company’s primary line of business is its Snowmobiles product segment • The Company operates in three segments: Snowmobile; Off-road; and Parts, Garments and Accessories • Sales of $672mm in 2012 • Polaris’ closest competitor but not a similar comparable • Products are of a lesser quality than Polaris Products Geography where ACAT makes sales

  23. Buy Rational Buy Risks • Superior Products – Market Leader • Strong Return on Equity • Stayed Profitable through the recession • International Growth • Indian Motorcycle • Small Vehicle Sales Growth • Aggressive management • Increasing Operating Cash Flows • Highly Exposed in Economic downturns • Susceptible to Changes in EPA and Safety Regulations • Strong Competition

  24. Superior Products – Market Leader Off Road Vehicles Market Leading Products • Polaris is number one in North American side-by-side vehicle sales. RANGER brand. • Introduced in 1998 • They are number one in North American recreational vehicle sales. RZR Brand. • Introduced in 2007 • They also have the best selling ATV in the Industry. SPORTSMAN. • Introduced in 1996 • Off road now accounts for 69% of the companies sales Consolidated PowerSports Market Share in Units (with total motorcycle industry) Snowmobiles • Polaris was initially founded as a Snowmobile company • Name is still synonymous with snowmobiles • They are the clear number one in selling snowmobiles in North America • Snowmobiles account for 9% of the companies 2012 revenue

  27. Stayed Profitable Through the Recession Inherent Risks Results • Polaris sells highly discretionary items • Products of this nature tend to be very difficult to sell during economic downturns • Polaris showed that their business model is capable of weathering through economic conditions • Polaris saw sales drop 20% in 2009 • 2008 sales = $1.95bn • 2009 sales = $1.57bn • Despite this tremendous drop in sales, Polaris was able to stay out the red • The Company’s flexible manufacturing platform allowed it to quickly and dramatically reduce COGS and manage attrition to the bottom line

  28. Financial Successes ROE Cash Flows • Cash is king • Polaris has been able to consistently increase its operating cash flows since the recession • Being able to increase operating cash flows consistently is vital to running a company efficiently • Being able to consistently produce cash flows helps the company pay its dividend (which Dollar Tree does not do) • ROE measures a corporation's profitability by revealing how much profit a company generates with the money shareholders have invested • Shows they have consistent earnings and an advantage in their market • Polaris has a relatively low historic payout ration of 38% • They maintain the majority of its income and are able to use it effective Return on Equity Operating Cash Flows ($mm)

  29. Buy Risks EPA and Safety Regulations Highly Exposed to Economic Downturns • Due to sheer nature of its business, Polaris is constantly exposed to changes in safety, use, and emission regulations • In 1988, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) attempted to force an industry-wide recall of ATVs sold that could be used by youth under the age of 18 • Settled out of court • In 2006, the CPSC issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to establish mandatory standards for ATVs and to ban all three-wheel ATVs. • Never passed • The Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board have adopted emissions regulations that are applicable to Polaris and may continue to enact stricter regulations as time goes on • Polaris is currently in full compliance of these regulations • Polaris’ products are archetypal discretionary purchases which clearly leaves them immune to severe economic downturns • FY 2009 resulted in a 20% decline in sales but the Company was still able to grow ROE to 59% • We are encouraged by Polaris’ resiliency during the financial crisis but still acknowledge its inherent susceptibility to the macro-environment Strong Competition • While Polaris is the market leader in many of its segments, it faces intense competition from large rivals with strong brand names • Yamaha and John Deere are both larger than Polaris by market cap and compete with Polaris’s main products: ATVs and side-by-sides • The motorcycle market has long been dominated by Harley Davidson and a head to head battle could end poorly for Polaris
