Download the FOCUS U.S. Communications Service Provider Quarterly: Winter 2016 Report

FOCUS U.S. Communication Service Provider QuarterlyAfter facing difficulties in our fall report, the FOCUS Communications Service Provider Index (CSPI) rebounded for our winter reporting period. The CSPI posted a gain of 4.2% for the three-month period. While this gain was certainly respectable, the CSPI still lagged both the 6.5% gain in the S&P 500 and the even larger gain of 8.4% in the NASDAQ over the same time period. For all of 2015, the CSPI was down 1.7%. This was slightly better than the 0.7% drop in the S&P 500, but not on par with the 5.7% gain in the NASDAQ. Despite the drop in the index, sector multiples still managed to show an increase…

M&A activity in the Communications Service Provider sector slowed down considerably in the final three months of 2015. We counted only 13 transactions for the period. All of these transactions were small, with total announced dollar volume of only $80 million. Despite the slowdown in the fourth quarter, overall it was still a solid year for M&A.
