PARIS (Reuters) – U.S. investor Harris Associates supports the management of auto parts maker Valeo, Chief Investment Officer David Herro said on Thursday, after the French government more than doubled its stake in the company to 5.12 percent.
“As long-term value investors we are fully supportive of the company and its management,” Herro said in an emailed response to Reuters. New York-based Harris owns 6.37 percent of Valeo.
