Wireless Network Infrastructure Update
Growth in subscribers, usage and demand for data services is driving continued carrier capital spending on network quality and enhancements. These fundamentals are driving network site development, construction and maintenance services by local and regional service providers to record levels. Continued outsourcing, particularly within operations and maintenance (O&M) functions by carriers represents significant long-term potential beyond the network development services currently experiencing record growth. This report includes market statistics and trends, comparable company and transaction valuations and industry leaders.

Keywords: wireless network services, network outsourcing, O&M, wireless capex

Electric Power Infrastructure Update
Increased electrical infrastructure capital spending combined with continued outsourcing and an improving regulatory environment has created a major outsourced infrastructure services market opportunity. Total capital spending on electric power infrastructure was $45bn in 2007, an increase of 21% in the past two years. The nation's electric utility transmission and distribution infrastructure requires substantial maintenance and expansion activity due to decades of underinvestment relative to capacity demand. This report includes market statistics and trends, comparable company and transaction valuations and industry leaders.

Oil & Gas Pipeline Infrastructure Update
The market for the design and construction of U.S. oil and natural gas infrastructure is in the midst of a multi-year "supercycle," with all key market segments at or near all-time peaks of activity. U.S. expected to consume 28% more oil and 19% more natural gas in 2030 than in 2007, while global energy demand is expected to increase 30% during this time. To meet such demand, investment in U.S. oil and gas pipelines (midstream) totaled approximately $10-15bn in 2007, with 6,200 miles of new pipelines expected to be installed by 2015. This report includes market statistics and trends, comparable company and transaction valuations and industry leaders.

Water & Wastewater Infrastructure Update
Aging infrastructure, population growth, increasing regulations and years of underspending are increasing the demand for massive investments in water and wastewater infrastructure. Capital spending for water/ wastewater infrastructure reached $34bn in 2007 and has been a strong and steady growth market historically with a CAGR of 8% since 1997. EPA estimates an annual spending gap of $19bn needed for capital expenditures (CapEx) over the next 20 years totaling $380bn in the aggregate. This report includes market statistics and trends, comparable company and transaction valuations and industry leaders.

Telecom & Cable Network Infrastructure Update
Competition between telecom, cable and wireless companies is driving continued network upgrades and demand for outsourced infrastructure installation and maintenance services. Major telcos record $25bn in annual depreciation on their plant with a carrying value of $400bn; which implies substantial activity required to simply maintain these networks and improve functionality. In addition to strong capital and maintenance spending, carriers are increasing their outsourcing of non-core network infrastructure services and consolidating their vendors. This report includes market statistics and trends, comparable company and transaction valuations and industry leaders.
