Diamond Hill Mid Cap Strategy made the following comment about Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. (NYSE:FIS) in its Q1 2023 investor letter:

"As is often the case, market volatility offers unique opportunities to shift the portfolio, capitalizing on valuations to introduce new holdings which we believe will offer attractive long-term returns. Accordingly, we capitalized on Q1’s choppiness to initiate positions in Arrow Electronics, Allstate, Stifel Financial and Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. (NYSE:FIS).

Fidelity National Information Services (FIS) provides technology solutions to financial institutions and businesses globally. It acquired Worldpay, a merchant payments business, in 2019 — a combination which initially excited investors but ultimately proved a disappointment as Worldpay’s large business underperformed, weighing on FIS. In 2022, activist shareholders convinced FIS to announce its intention to spin off Worldpay, leaving FIS with a collection of leading bank and capital markets technology outsourcing businesses, which today represent two-thirds of FIS’s total revenue. Though FIS may be impacted in the near term by recent headwinds in the financials industry overall, the business has historically proven relatively resilient — including during the global financial crisis. We find the current valuation attractive and not reflective of the business’s underlying value and therefore capitalized on the opportunity to initiate a position."
