2013 May Bring Infrastructure SpendingThe upcoming election and fiscal cliff should focus investors on the challenges of fiscal policy and the dysfunction in Washington, D.C. However, we believe one area of spending has bipartisan support and should benefit after the election in 2013 -- infrastructure. Fifth Street's largest equity investment, Traffic Solutions Corporation (formerly Traffic Control & Safety Corporation), is one of the biggest independent traffic control and highway safety products and services companies in California and Hawaii. Fifth Street recently shepherded the company through a financial restructuring that ultimately saved approximately 300 jobs. Operating performance is stabilizing and should benefit significantly if the Federal government allocates more funds for domestic transportation. Fifth Street owns a majority of the equity of Traffic Solutions Corporation.
