Like much of the mutual fund industry, our Oakmark Funds had higher than normal capital gains distributions in 2014. Going into year six of the market advance, there just weren't many losses left to offset the gains realized on stocks we sold. The Oakmark Select Fund, with a distribution of 12% of its value, unfortunately made some lists of tax-unfriendly funds due to its double-digit distribution. Oakmark Select's 2014 performance benefited from three mergers: DirecTV (DTV) being acquired by AT&T (T), Forest Laboratories (FRX) by Actavis (ACT) and TRW Automotive Holdings (TRW) by ZF Friedrichshafen. A year ago those three acquirees accounted for 18% of the Oakmark Select portfolio, a! nd their sales accounted for the majority of our gains. Unless we wanted to hold stock in the acquiring companies, there simply wasn't a good way to avoid recognizing those taxable gains. But given the disconnect between our large distributions this year and our claims to be a tax-se nsitive fund family, an explanation might be helpful.
