Qumu, RMG Networks Holding, Cinedigm and ModSys International also saw gains last week.

The tech market saw some major gains last week. Vringo (NASDAQ:VRNG) was the clear all star, with 70.51-percent growth during the period.
However, the runners up also saw respectable growth. Qumu (NASDAQ:QUMU), RMG Networks Holding (NASDAQ:RMGN), Cinedigm (NASDAQ:CIDM) and ModSys International (NASDAQ:MDSY) all saw significant gains.


This development-stage company is focused on identifying, generating, acquiring and deriving economic benefits from intellectual property assets. The company intends to monetize its technology portfolio through a range of initiatives, such as licensing, strategic partnerships and litigation. Last week’s 70.51-percent growth was the cherry on top of a strong month. So far, Vringo has seen 47.78-percent growth in February.

The company saw some change in leadership recently. On February 22, the company put out a press release announcing that Bruce T. Bernstein would be joining the company’s board of directors, with Ashley C. Keller simultaneously resigning. Bernstein has over 30 years of experience in the securities industry, and since 2006 has served as president of Rockmore Capital, a direct investment and lending fund.
