NetPro Named to Top 20 Fastest Growing Arizona Private Companies List

Record Growth and Expansion in 2004 Earns Software Leader 19th Place Ranking in Prestigious "Business Journal" List

PHOENIX, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 12, 2005 -- NetPro Computing, Inc., a leading developer of solutions for Microsoft networks, today added to its growing list of industry honors with a 19th place ranking on the ACE Awards list of the Top 25 Fastest Growing Private Companies in Arizona.

Founded in Arizona in 1991, NetPro earned the prestigious ranking by achieving record year-over-year revenue growth in 2004. "Last year was a phenomenal year for NetPro," said Kevin Hickey, President & CEO of NetPro. "Our revenue not only climbed an impressive 223% in 2004, but we posted the most profitable year in company history. The ACE Awards are an excellent way to celebrate this great accomplishment." Hickey points out that the growth has been achieved despite extensive simultaneous investment in the business. "We doubled the size of both the sales and the research and development departments in 2004, so we can continue to post solid gains in the years to come," said Hickey.

The Arizona Corporate Excellence Awards were announced during a ceremony Sept. 8 in Phoenix, and the award winners, along with the Top 50 Private Companies, were published in the Sept. 9 issue of The Business Journal.
