LONDON, October 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
ESET ranks among the fastest growing technology companies according to Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Central Europe, placing 46th overall. In the ranking, ESET achieved a 303 percent growth over the past 5 years and is the only company to have placed in the "Fast 50" ranking ten times in a row.
Additionally, ESET has ranked among the elite "Big 5" group within the Fast 50, which recognises those companies for consistently achieving fast growth rates, but are too big to compete for the top spots in the main ranking.
"We are very pleased to be among the 50 fastest-growing technology companies in Central Europe for the tenth year in a row. Thanks go to all ESET employees around the world for their great effort, as well as to tens of millions of satisfied ESET customers in more than 180 countries. We will do our utmost to keep it up and continue increasing our customer base even more this coming year," remarked ESET CEO Richard Marko.
To determine the fastest growing companies, Deloitte reviewed fiscal year revenues over five years (2006-2010), calculated the revenue growth percentage over five years, and compared the growth of technology companies. The entrants have to demonstrate consistent revenue over the entire 5 year period. Software companies rank toward the top of the list, accounting for 45% of all award recipients. This year, the combined average growth in revenue of the awarded companies reached 1 068 %, the 3rd highest cumulative growth over the program's 12-year history.
To underline ESET's success, the company also ranked among top 10 European finalists in the prestigious HSBC European Business Awards, in the "innovation" category.
