  1. 1. Small Cap Tech Update June 21, 2010 M Partners RES Small Cap Tech Index Update The M Partners RES Small Cap Tech Index is made up of 132 TSX and TSX.V technology companies with market capitalizations of between $5M and $500M. We track the performance of the index periodically as a barometer of the Canadian small cap technology sector. % Price % Price FW EV / TTM EV / Change Change Key Stats EBITDA* EBITDA FW P/E* (Last Report) (YTD) RES Small Cap Tech 7.4x 8.0x 16.6x -5.8% 5.9% S&P/TSX Composite 8.2x 10.5x 12.75 -2.4% 1.4% Difference -0.9x -2.5x 3.8x -3.4% 4.5% *Based on 44 companies w/Estimates Source: Capital IQ, Bloomberg, M Partners  Since our last Small Cap Tech report on April 30, 2010, our index has underperformed the S&P/TSX composite index with a return of -5.8% vs. -2.4% as of June 15, 2010. Investors were shedding risk by moving to liquid, dividend- yielding stocks, or gold. Considering that Small Cap Tech is considered by investors to be risky, and less liquid than other sectors, the downdraft could be expected.  Notwithstanding recent underperformance, the RES Small Cap Tech has returned 5.9% YTD versus a 1.4% YTD for the main index.  Our index continues to trade at a discount to the S&P/TSX on both forward and trailing EV/EBITDA multiples of 10.4% and 24% respectively.
