Last quote by Mick McGuire

What we saw were certain businesses that made good money and good returns on their assets, and certain businesses that did not. If the CEO was open to considering a fresh look at maybe exiting the businesses that were not performing well and focusing on the businesses that were, there was some opportunity to generate a lot of earnings.feedback

Mick McGuire quotes

Apr 20 2017

The alignment with shareholder interest has been really unfortunate and disappointing for several years on end. The management team and the board have been wholesale sellers of shares over time. That's not the kind of alignment that you want to see. I don't think that there's any one quick fix.feedback

In order to get the company back on the right path, we need a management team that's more well-suited to the challenges of the company. We think we can work effectively with the remaining board members to map out a process to identify a really compelling candidate in a short period of time. There is absolutely no comprehensive plan by this management team or board to address any of these issues. The actions that we've observed so far we would describe as window dressing around the edges that still fail to, you know, really address the wide range of issues that need to be focused on.feedback

[U]nder current management, shares of Buffalo Wild Wings' common stock have underperformed virtually every relevant benchmark on a 1-year, 3-year, and 5-year basis. Despite declining same-store sales, lackluster margins, a deteriorating guest experience and poor capital deployment decisions, management continues to fight tooth-and-nail to maintain the status quo.feedback

Since its IPO in 2003, Buffalo Wild Wings' Board and Management team have sold the vast majority of all stock ever owned. In our view, this lack of long-term ownership has contributed to failures of governance and oversight, poor capital allocation discipline and the severe lack of urgency in navigating the difficult operating environment. Shareholders deserve a Board and management team that is willing to commit its own capital alongside them. Buffalo Wild Wings leadership has not put their money where their mouth is.feedback

Deckers is a company that fits our investment model very, very well. It's a business with a great brand that generates a lot of cash flow and actually trades at one of its lowest valuations in its history, but they've made some very critical missteps around capital allocation and really a lack of discipline around costs and returns on capital.feedback

In comparison to a lot of restaurant concepts, the runway for growth here is very, very substantial.feedback

Suboptimal capital allocation behavior is symptomatic of a larger organizational deficiency: a tendency to favor gut feel and thematic proclamations without tangible evidence or appropriate analytical support.feedback
