In public markets, the FOCUS Enterprise-Focused Telecom Technology Index (EFTTI) jumped 7.2% in our spring reporting period.

Gains for the sector have been broad-based, with every single sub sector in the black for both the three- and 12-month periods. Sub sector multiples also are up significantly compared to last year.
