Artisan Select Equity Fund made the following comment about Axalta Coating Systems Ltd. (NYSE:AXTA) in its Q3 2023 investor letter:

"Axalta Coating Systems Ltd. (NYSE:AXTA) declined 18% in Q3. Shares rose strongly in the prior several months, and we meaningfully reduced our position during that time as the shares approached our fair value estimate. The United Auto Workers strike will reduce auto production rates, which will have a knock-on effect on Axalta’s coatings business with original equipment manufacturers. In addition, strong oil prices will likely lead to more raw material inflation, which Axalta will need to pass on through higher prices. We are confident that it will do so."
