We Expect Wesco to Benefit From Increased U.S. Infrastructure Spend Over our Forecast

Dawit Woldemariam Equity Analyst

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Dawit Woldemariam |

In 1994, Westinghouse Electrical sold its electrical distribution business, Westinghouse Electric Supply, or Wesco, to a private equity firm. Wesco went public in 1999. Since its separation from Westinghouse, Wesco has used most of its cumulative free cash flow on acquisitions, which have expanded its scale, diversified revenue, and fueled a meaningful portion of the company’s growth. Once squarely focused on construction end markets, Wesco now serves a much broader array of customers across industrial, construction, utility, commercial, institutional, and government markets.
