Inc. 5000 Ranks Visix as One of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies
Posted on Tuesday, September 4, 2007
ATLANTA, GA, September 4, 2007 – Visix celebrates its inclusion in the first-ever Inc. 5,000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. The Inc. 5,000, an extension of Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 500 list, captures many businesses that are too big to grow at the pace required to make the Inc. 500, as well as a host of smaller firms. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy.
“The Inc. 5,000 provides the most comprehensive look ever at the most important part of the economy – the entrepreneurial part,” said Inc. 5,000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. “The expansion of the list has allowed us to tell the stories of larger companies, older companies, and a wealth of companies in industries like Manufacturing and Construction that are underreported in the business media.”
“We are honored to be recognized for our performance,” stated Sean M. Matthews, President, Visix, Inc. “We are equally pleased to note that when we close the books on 2007, we will again deliver a 31 percent compounded annual growth rate for the fourth consecutive year. We strategically exited our legacy electronic manufacturing business to focus our energies on software development opportunities with substantial growth potential. As a result, we are experiencing double digit growth in the number of new customers and triple digit growth in the volume of implementation and training services delivered quarterly.”
AxisTV, the Visix flagship product line, is deployed in hundreds of locations on three continents around the world. Clients are using the web-based applications to deliver time-sensitive content to an array of endpoints including large displays, televisions, cell phones, RSS readers and desktops as screen savers and pop-up messages. Depending on client requirements and configuration, users can simultaneously deliver information to hundreds of displays in public places and thousands of personal desktops and mobile devices.
The 2007 Inc. 5000 list measures revenue growth from 2003 through 2006. To qualify, companies had to be U.S.-based and privately held, independent – not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies – as of December 31, 2006, and have had at least $200,000 in revenue in 2003, and $2 million in 2006.
The 2007 Inc. 5,000, as revealed online at www.inc.com, reported median revenue of $9.4 million and median three-year growth of 140 percent. Complete information on this year’s Inc. 5,000 can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The list features a profile for each company, almost all of them written as a result of Inc. interviews with management. In addition, the list is searchable according to numerous criteria, including industry, city, state, region, and year founded.
