Company Report

Crane Is Poised to Drive Revenue Growth and Margin Expansion

Following the separation of the payment and merchandising technologies business as Crane NXT in April 2023, Crane’s portfolio consists of the aerospace and electronics, process flow technologies, and engineered materials segments. We think Crane owns a portfolio of moaty businesses that tend to be leaders in their niche markets, typically holding the number-one or number-two market share position. Crane manufactures highly engineered products that often perform a mission-critical function. Roughly 40% of its sales come from the aftermarket.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Crane owns a portfolio of moatworthy businesses that enjoy leading share in niche end markets.

Bears

We expect the company to continue to pursue strategic acquisitions, and poor execution of its M&A strategy could destroy shareholder value.
