The future of television is streaming video and the Directors and Management of Valdor believe that now is the time to enter this compelling business sector. In addition to the price versus value argument supporting Valdor making this acquisition: 1) the streaming video industry is converting to fibre optics; 2) the same customers of this acquisition company are a market for fibre optic components, unrelated to their video streaming and; 3) management of the company, that will be part of the acquisition, has significant experience and contacts in the fibre optics industry, within North America.
Fiber optics is the future of communications. The signal transmission business is in the early stages of a fiber optics bull market. All signal transmission, in their many and various forms, are being converted from electrical to fiber optics. A comprehensive global report on the fiber optics components market projects that it will reach US$42 billion by the year 2017.
Valdor is a high technology fiber optic components company specializing in the design and manufacture of fiber optic connectors, laser pigtails, splitters, and other optical and optoelectronic components, including some that use the Valdor proprietary and patented Impact Mount™ technology. Valdor specializes in harsh environment products and in particular splitters and connectors. Valdor’s business plan incorporates growth by acquisition.
