Press release from the issuing company
Inc 500 ranking recognizes httprint’s exceptional growth in print e-procurement and services
SAN FRANCISCO, October 16, 2002 -- httprint, a leading provider of e-procurement solutions for print, was named today to the Inc 500 list of America’s fastest growing private companies. Inc magazine annually ranks America’s entrepreneurial growth leaders, and the full 2002 list will appear in the magazine’s special Inc 500 issue published this month.
httprint achieved 829 percent growth over the last five years. This was the first year httprint was eligible, having begun as a San Francisco-based firm in 1996. The Inc 500 ranks the nation’s leading entrepreneurial firms according to sales growth over the previous five years. Former Inc 500 companies that have gone on to become household names include Microsoft, Oracle, Timberland and Patagonia.
“We are pleased to be on this distinguished list of high growth companies,” said Mark Porter, President and CEO of httprint. “Our success mirrors that of our customers, who have achieved significant hard-dollar savings by gaining control over and visibility into their print spend,” said Porter.
Inc compiled its list by examining company tax and financial statements from certified public accountants and by conducting interviews with company officials. Inc editor John Koten said this year’s list shows smart company strategies can succeed even in the toughest of times. “This is the first Inc 500 ranking to reflect the full impact of the recession,” said Koten. “Yet these entrepreneurs are managing to confound the naysayers and move ahead despite the obstacles.”
