ESG/Ethical Impact

Behind our corporate configuration lies not some inscrutable intention but an alertness to opportunity, resulting in capital deployment across multiple industries. If Biglari Holdings is the wheel, the parent company is its hub and the subsidiary businesses its spokes. When a major acquisition is made in one of our established areas — insurance, oil and gas, or restaurants — that spoke is reinforced, while a new spoke is added when we enter a new industry. We possess a readiness to enter almost any industry, provided we can obtain the right business, the right people, and the right price. The quest to develop a multi-industry corporation is unpopular in many quarters. Yet we concern ourselves with profits rather than popularity. An acquisitive corporation devoted to one field alone will invariably find limited options within its domain, and usually at unattractive valuations. By adopting the unorthodoxy of a diversified corporation, we are able to efficiently move capital wherever and whenever it makes the most economic sense. We do not shrink the universe of acquisition possibilities through the arbitrary roadmaps of tradition or convention; nor do we let such dictates circumscribe our actions. Rather, our limitations are based solely on our ability to evaluate the future economics of a potential business purchase. Powered by opportunism, our capital allocation vehicle undertakes acquisitions in an effort to advance per-share value. To build its collection of companies, Biglari Holdings combines decentralized operations with centralized financial decision-making. The operating businesses we have acquired — such as First Guard and Southern Pioneer — are overseen today by the very families responsible for their creation. By granting an unusual degree of managerial autonomy, avoiding involvement in the day-to-day matters of the subsidiaries, we preserve the entrepreneurial spirit. The main area we assume responsibility for is capital allocation, which is managed exclusively by your Chairman.
