Compete, Inc. Named Third Fastest Growing Company in Fast 50 Program

Sep 14, 2006 – Compete, Inc. has been named to Deloitte’s prestigious Technology Fast 50 Program for New England, a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies in the area by Deloitte & Touche USA LLP, one of the nation’s leading professional services organizations. Rankings are based on the percentage revenue growth over five years from 2001-2005.

“The Internet has become the hottest spot for consumers and brands to meet and Compete takes the temperature of those connections all across the web every day,” said Don McLagan, Compete’s President and CEO. “We are honored that Deloitte & Touche has recognized Compete’s growth and increasing influence with consumers and brands in the online marketplace.”

Compete’s increase in revenues of 5,348 percent from 2001 to 2005 resulted in a third place ranking in the Technology Fast 50 for New England. The average increase in revenues among companies who made the Technology Fast 50 for this region was 1,825 percent.

To qualify for the Technology Fast 50, companies must have had operating revenues of at least $50,000 in 2001 and $5,000,000 in 2005, be headquartered in North America, and be a company that owns proprietary technology or proprietary intellectual property that contributes to a significant portion of the company’s operating revenues; or devotes a significant proportion of revenues to the research and development of technology. Using other companies’ technology or intellectual property in a unique way does not qualify.

Winners of the 16 regional Technology Fast 50 programs in the United States and Canada are eligible to be entered into the Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 program, which ranks North America’s top 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies.
