The lastest acquisition, is the 157 MUSD merger of Planar with Leyard, a leading worldwide provider of LED display products.

Obviously we at NUITEQ are excited to see the validation of our industry and the technology by investors. We are particularly interested to see, that not only investments in touch technology are increasing, so are investments in education technology startups. Our touch technology, combined with our focus on education, puts us in an interesting position, as the market is growing and interest from investors is increasing.
