Nordson Investment Summary
Nordson maintains and grows market leading positions in its businesses through the continuous introduction of differentiated, best-in-class technology that increases customers’ production, improves productivity and reduces their costs.  Nordson couples its winning technology with superior global service, including a highly consultative sales approach, application expertise, direct on-site service and readily available parts, to offer a complete value proposition that is difficult for competitors to match. 

Revenues are balanced between more stable durable and non-durable goods end markets and faster growing technology end markets, all of which include a steady stream of high margin parts and consumables sales.   The company drives organic growth by maintaining leadership in mature geographies, capturing rapidly expanding opportunities in emerging geographies, and by leveraging existing technology into new applications, such as LEDs, solar and life sciences.  Additional growth comes through the acquisition of companies that share Nordson business model characteristics and that can be grown rapidly via Nordson’s global infrastructure. 

A lean and decentralized global team, operating close to the customer and focused on continuous improvement, consistently executes at a high level to generate outstanding margins, excellent returns on invested capital and high levels of cash.  Dividends have increased annually for 48 consecutive years, placing Nordson in an elite group of 15 U.S. publicly traded companies to have raised their dividend for this number of consecutive years.  The company’s total shareholder return outperforms relevant peer indices.
