The uncertainty of healthcare reform, the rising unemployment rate, and the talk of another large government bailout are all major themes making headlines in recent weeks. At the end of Q3, market indicators continued to be mixed: the S&P index was up nearly 10%, the Deloitte Consumer Spending Index rose to a two year high; the unemployment and foreclosure rates continued to rise. However, the M&A market indicators are positive. M&A multiples continue to rebound and overall M&A transaction volume is up again, compared with late '08 and early '09 lows.

2009

(NYSE:PER), Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) acquired Tandberg (OB: TAA) and Xerox (NYSE:XRX) acquired Affiliated Computer Service (NYSE:ACS) to expand their portfolios. Large firms flush with cash such as Dell (NYSE:DELL) and VMware (NYSE: VMW) are moving opportunistically to acquire both best-in-class and firms that may have become distressed as a result of current economic conditions. Quickly growing healthcare firms that have experienced strong organic growth are also moving to acquire best-in-class mid-market firms to expand their solutions. For example, athenahealth's (NASDAQ: ATHN) recently acquired SaaS-based healthcare analytics firm Anodyne. Looking forward into Q4, the economic outlook is still uncertain. However, there is evidence that the market is beginning to recover.

TECHNOLOGY TripleTreeâ€™s Technology sector contains three major sub - sectors â€“ Software, IT Services, and Wireless/Mobile Internet

SOFTWARE Technology M&A activity has seen resurgence in the third quarter with $31.8B worth of announced acquisitions, double the amount from Q2. As expected, acquisitions were propped up by a host of global acquirers acting opportunistically and seeking high growth assets in the technology sector. In the public markets, the quarter showed encouraging signs; the Nasdaq rose 15% and software companies experienced similar trend. The month of September experienced the highest level of technology M&A spending of any month so far this year with approximately $22B of the total $35B worth of Q3 deal flow. In the largest deal of the quarter and an acquisition that will markedly accelerate their size in the BPO market, Xerox (NYSE: XRX) acquired ACS WWW.TRIPLE-TREE.COM

(NYSE: ACS) for $6.4B (1.3x TEV/Revenue). Many other game-changing acquisitions surfaced late in Q3 with Dell's (NASDAQ: DELL) acquisition of Perot (NYSE: PER) for $3.9B (1.4x TEV/Revenue) - the largest in Dell's history and one that will better position Dell with a strong services arm focused on healthcare to compete with the likes of IBM and HP. Adobe (NASDAQ: ADBE) acquired Omniture (NASDAQ: OMTR) for $1.8B (5.2x TEV/Revenue) emphasizing the value and uniqueness of large SaaS platforms and building a stronger online presence to manage and measure content and analytics. IBM (NYSE: IBM) has acquired SPSS (NASDAQ: SPSS) for $1.2B (2.9x TEV/Revenue) expanding its focus on business analytics in hopes of meeting growing customer needs. 952.253.5300

acquiring SaaS-based financial management provider Mint for $170M. Further, while PE spending accounted for only 13% of M&A, Silver Lake Partners is leading the transaction with eBay-owned (NASDAQ: EBAY) Skype for $2B, the largest PE deal of the year. SaaS-based remote access and helpdesk services company, LogMeIn (NASAQ: LOGM), raised $107M through its IPO and is experiencing stability on the public market with a valuation of 6.4x TEV/Revenue. LogMeIn is in the top 6 of best-returning IPOs for the quarter with a 14% return on Q3 close. While the number of IPOs in Q3 2009 has increased 240% compared to Q3 2008, technology IPOs have accounted for only 2 of the 17 IPOs in the current quarter, compared to half of the 12 public offerings in Q2. The 17 U.S. IPOs in the third quarter raised $5.5b compared to the $1.6B raised in Q2. These numbers hint that public markets have renewed confidence and that the IPO market is generating momentum.

WIRELESS/MOBILE INTERNET

TECHNOLOGY

Public valuations continue to make slight gains, with a year-to-date 5% increase in relative performance of the balance of all mobile/ wireless indices. The Mobile/Wireless M&A market experienced a rise from 29 transactions in Q2 to 40 in Q3. The largest disclosed deal of the quarter was Sprint (NYSE: S) acquiring Virgin Mobile (NYSE: VM) for $420M (0.5x TEV/Revenue and 3.8x TEV/EBITDA). AT&T's (NSYE:T) continues to be active with the purchase of mobile widget development software company Plusmo. Third quarter saw numerous transactions in the mobile advertising and marketing space. NAVTEQ/Nokia (HLSE: NOK1) acquired Acuity Mobile whose location-based and interactive marketing solutions will enhance NAVTEQ's digital map navigation. Shutterfly (NASDAQ: SFLY) acquired picture and video sharing application developer Tiny Pictures for $1.3M. Neither transaction disclosed valuation multiples. Since TripleTree's initial forays into this sector over four years ago, innovations in Wireless and Mobile and the adjacent areas within technology have grown markedly. TripleTree is expecting tremendous momentum from the high-tech sector in driving the next wave of innovation in Wireless and Mobile Health (mHealth) and this is discussed in our recent report entitled "Wireless & Mobile Health: Applications, devices, services, and infrastructure converge as patients and providers take responsibility for cost, quality, and access to healthcare." TripleTree has co-founded the Wireless-Life Sciences Alliance (WLSA) to create and promote an ongoing and expanding dialogue around the many opportunities using wireless technologies to advance the delivery of healthcare.

H E A LT H C A R E TripleTree divides its healthcare sector into three major categories - Healthcare IT & Outsourcing, Healthcare Services., and Population Health Management.

H E A LT H C A R E I T & O U T S O U R C I N G Healthcare IT & Outsourcing sector experienced significant market value gains of over 20% in Q3 and performing almost 10% above the S&P 500. With an overall struggling economy, all eyes and ears have been focused on what will happen to the healthcare industry as a result of potential government forces. With President Obama still encouraging significant spend on Healthcare IT, many sector constituents remain bullish on the healthcare market in hopes of a looming financial injection.

Xerox's growth in BPO market, increases customer diversity by adding multiple healthcare clients and boosts its recurring revenue to over 75% of total revenue. Another large transaction this quarter was Dell's (NASDAQ: DELL) acquisition of Perot Systems (NYSE:PER) for $3.9B (1.4x P/R). With over 45% of Perot System's revenues in healthcare, Dell is expanding its offerings and customer base for immediate and long-term growth.

HEALTHCARE

M&A activity in the Healthcare IT & Outsourcing slightly improved in Q3 with 17 completed transactions, up from 13 in Q2. With limited transactions reporting valuation Covidien's (NYSE:COV) acquisition of Aspect Medical Systems (NASDAQ: ASPM), a provider of brain monitoring technology topped the charts at $190M enterprise value (1.9x P/R). With healthcare reform top-of-mind for many, a relatively stable industry in a down economy has led to a few interesting transactions: MedAssurant's acquisition of Catalyst Technologies, a healthcare clinical quality outcomes analysis provider; Salesforce.com's (NYSE:CRM) acquisition of Practice Fusion, a SaaS-based EHR software provider for $10M; and Verisk Health's acquisition of TierMed Systems, a provider of HEDIS software solutions to payers. Finally, a few blockbuster outsourcing transactions occurred toward the end of Q3. Xerox (NYSE:XRX) acquired Affiliated Computer Services (NYSE:ACS) for $6.4B (1.3x P/R). This transaction accelerates

All PBMs in TripleTree's PBM index fared very well in Q3, including Medco (NYSE:MHS) up 21%, Express Scripts (Nasdaq: ESRX) up 13% and CVS Caremark (NYSE:CVS) up 12%. While the effects of reform on the PBM sector are unknown, they seem less risky than the potential revamp of the Managed Care industry. The PBMs seem very focused on building (or acquiring) capabilities around specialty pharmacy, disease management, mail distribution, etc., all of which can help lower costs and create value-added programs for their clients. From an M&A perspective, Q3 was not an active one for the Healthcare Services sector with seven announced transactions. The few notable transactions included Aetna (NYSE: AET) announcing its intention to acquire Horizon Behavioral Services, the EAP business of Psychiatric Solutions (Nasdaq:PSYS) for $70M. Also during the quarter Oxford Health Plans announced its intent to acquire Health Net of the Northeast from Health Net (NYSE:HNT) for $180M.

HEALTHCARE

With the greater public markets performing quite well, there were mixed results among TripleTree's Healthcare Services indices. The PBM index was up 15% but the Health Insurers index was up only a mere 1%. The under market performance of the Insurers index really comes as no surprise as there continues to be a great deal of uncertainty on the legislative front as President Obama and Congress are in the middle of health reform discussions. As the individual insurers go, there were a number which had a strong 3rd quarter including CIGNA (NYSE: CI) up 17%, Aetna (NYSE:AET) up 11% and Humana (NYSE: HUM) up 16%. UnitedHealth Group, Inc. (NYSE: UNH) ended the quarter basically flat and H E A LT H C A R E S E R V I C E S WellPoint (NYSE: WLP) lost 7% of its value. Look for Q4 to be similar as there remains much uncertainty around how healthcare reform will affect the industry. There has been a lot of talk about the creation of exchanges and some sort of a national plan which could reset the fundamentals and priorities for the industry. This could increase the importance of insurers building direct-to-consumer distribution capabilities, something that has not traditionally been a strength for this sector.

POPULATION HEALTH MANAGEMENT After a tough end to 2008 and a challenging opening quarter to 2009, the S&P 500 saw an uptick of 13% in Q2, followed with a 14% gain in Q3. Many believe we are starting to crawl our way out of a recession that has plagued the overall markets for the past year or so. With the overall economy faring well, TripleTree's Population Health Management index also increased its value in the quarter, but not as much as the S&P 500 as it finished up 8% from Q2.

The other notable transaction of the quarter was Aetna (NYSE: AET) announcing its intention to acquire Horizon Behavioral Services, the EAP business of Psychiatric Solutions (NasdaqGS:PSYS) for $70M. In the first six months of 2009 the EAP business recorded $22.6M of revenue which extrapolates to ~$45M of revenue for 2009 and a TEV/Revenue multiple of 1.6x. "We believe this acquisition will significantly enhance Aetna's ability to provide a greater variety of EAP services to our customers and will position Aetna as a key player in the domestic EAP business," said Louise Murphy, Vice President and Head of Behavioral Health for Aetna.

From an M&A perspective, Q3 2009 was slow with a total of four announced or closed transactions. An interesting transaction was Inverness, the acquisition machine, acquired Free & Clear for $100M cash with a potential earn-out of $30M. Free & Clear's roots and the majority of its business are smoking cessation programs and just recently expanded service offerings to include programs for obesity, stress, nutrition, and WWW.TRIPLE-TREE.COM

A big driver for the increase in value in the Population Health Management index was Healthways (NASDAQ:HWAY), which continued to bounce back from a difficult 2008. Healthways saw a 53% increase in Q2 and followed that up with a 14% increase in value in Q3. Inverness Medical Innovations (NYSE:IMA) continued its strong market performance as it gained 9% closing out the quarter trading just shy of $39 per share, up from a 52 week low of ~$12. Another large player in the sector, WebMD (NASDAQ:WBMD), saw its value increase 11%. The other companies in our index include Adam Inc. (NASDAQ:ADAM) up 21%, American Medical Alert Corp. (NASDAQ:AMAC) up 5%, Health Grades (NASDAQ:HGRD) up 27%, Health Fitness Corp. (AMEX: FIT) down 10%, and Magellan (NASDAQ:MGLN) down 5%.

fitness. This transaction represents the fourth for Inverness within the PHM space as it has also acquired Alere, ParadigmHealth, and Matria. In 2008, Free & Clear had revenues of $47.1M which equates to a 2.1x TEV/Revenue multiple with the full earn-out netting a 2.7x multiple.

BUSINESS SERVICES TripleTree’s Business Services sector contains two major sub-sectors - Human Capital and Outsourcing

HUMAN CAPITAL MANAGEMENT TripleTree's Human Capital Management sector maintained a steady climb upward in the third quarter. The Staffing, HR Technology and HR Consulting sectors all out-paced the S&P 500 and improved month-over-month resulting in an average increase of 25% from June 30th. HR Technology ended Q3 up over 30%, leading the Human Capital Management sector. A few large transactions were consummated this quarter, but HR Technology saw the greatest investments. Axel Springer (DB:SPR) acquired StepStone (OB:STP), HR management software provider for $184M (0.9x P/R) in the HR Technology sector. SaaS-based businesses saw many transactions this quarter including Salary.com's (NASDAQ:SLRY) purchase of Makana Solutions, a SaaS sales compensation management software startup; Taleo Corp's (NASDAQ: TLEO) acquisition of Worldwide Compensation, a compensation management SaaS provider; OpenPortal Software's acquisition of TriviumSoft, a SaaS-based employee management software provider; and Replicon's acquisition of MySchedule.net, an employee scheduling SaaS provider. Overall the sector saw Human Capital Management

While the United States saw an unemployment rate of 9.5% in Q3, the Staffing sector was up around 25%. In these slow times, businesses rely on temporary employees allowing staffing companies to help employers find great workers and taking care of the extensive logistics. As a result, many companies were acquisitive, including Adecco SA (SWX: ADEN), which acquired Spring Group (LSE: SRG), an IT staffing services provider for $179M (0.1x P/R) and American CyberSystems which acquired SURVIS Group, an IT staffing services provider. TripleTree's HR Consulting and HR Outsourcing sectors both improved slightly this quarter with HR Consulting valuation climbing from 6.9x in Q2 to 8.0x TEV/EBITDA. The HR Outsourcing sector also saw increases with all the companies improving their valuations. Overall this market has seen steady improvements since the start of 2009 and with a quiet M&A quarter, a burst of transactions is quite possible for Q4.

OUTSOURCING TripleTree's Outsourcing Index continued to follow the overall market in the third quarter. All components of the index, Managed Services, Platform IT Outsourcing, and BPO were up after starting off down nearly 5% in the opening weeks of Q3. The Managed Services and Platform IT Outsourcing indexes both outperformed the market (S&P 500). However, the BPO index lagged behind the S&P 500. The Platform IT Outsourcing index observed a strong rally in mid-September driven by Dell's (NYSE:DELL) announced acquisition of Perot (NYSE:PER) for $3.9B in cash.

(NYSE:XRX) acquisition of Affiliated Computer Service (NYSE:ACS) for $6.4B, a total enterprise value of $8.7B (1.3x TEV/Revenue or 8.0x TEV/EBITDA). Through this acquisition Xerox expands its footprint beyond document management and will be better able to compete in the broader technology market.

Overall Outsourcing and Managed Services M&A activity increased in Q3 as companies look to make opportunist moves while values are still suppressed. As a result, the majority of M&A transactions continue to exhibit weak M&A metrics. In the third quarter reported TEV/REV multiples ranged from 0.1x to 3.3x. One of the most notable and largest M&A transaction was Xerox's Outsourcing
