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.
