Clipperton Finance, a leading European corporate finance boutique focused on the High Tech and Media industries, released today its third Newsletter on Listed European High Tech and Media companies. The Newsletter presents both an overview of European listed company valuations for the 9 months from July 2010 to March 2011 and analyses a few specific companies and deals in the European high tech space.
In this third release, the Clipperton Technology Index (CTI) is composed of the 684 technology companies listed in the UK (Main Market and AIM), France (Eurolist A, B, C and Alternext), and Germany (Regulated). We find the CTI evolution in line with the overall 20% gains of the major European indices, while NASDAQ strongly outperforms European market.
In terms of company focus, we profile Vivendi, Ubisoft Entertainment, and Delticom. We eventually zoom on the Software segment – introducing Sage and Dassault Systèmes and giving an overview of Misys acquisition of Sophis.
Clipperton Finance has provided transaction services to the European High Tech and Media Companies since its inception in 2003, with a focus on innovative private companies. Nevertheless, we have a strong interest for the listed companies in our space, as they have an active role both as role models and as potential exits for the emerging high tech leaders.Clipperton’s Listed Companies Newsletter takes a medium-to-long term view of European capital markets and focuses on the strategic rationale behind each period’s major deals and shifts in valuation.
