Southeastern Asset Management's 2011 Annual Letter

After delivering strong returns in 2009 and 2010, we are disappointed to report weak results for 2011. We prefer every year be outstanding, but our multi-year orientation focuses us on longer investment time horizons. Over Southeastern’s 36 year history, most five year holding periods have been rewarding. Currently, however, our five year returns are burdened by the unprecedented 2008 price declines. Unfortunately, 2011 did nothing to offset our most challenged year.
