(NYSE:CDRE) is a Jacksonville, Florida-based public company with an $894.7 million market capitalization. Cadre Holdings, Inc.

Here is what Maran Capital Management has to say about Cadre Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:CDRE) in its Q2 2022 investor letter:

"As a reminder, Cadre primarily sells holsters, bulletproof vests, and bomb disposal suits. It has an entrenched position with many customers and is fairly recession-resistant, selling into government law enforcement budgets. The world is a dangerous place, and the pendulum is swinging back from calls to defund the police to requests to re-fund the police. The operating performance of the business has been strong. Management is top-notch, and the company has a large pipeline of accretive M&A opportunities in front of it. My base-case thesis is that it should grow earnings by double digits organically, getting EBTIDA margins to 20% over the next few years, and then add to that growth by making smart deals. Cadre announced a secondary offering of stock in June (to facilitate the exit of a private equity firm that still owned shares after Cadre’s IPO), which led to weakness in the shares (and contributed to our weak 2Q performance). In the long term, Cadre’s outlook remains bright; we added to our position during June. "
