The Annual M2M 100 Named by M2M Magazine

CAROL STREAM, IL--(Marketwire - November 20, 2008) - Today, M2M magazine revealed the companies named to the 2009 M2M 100. Published for the fifth time, this annual directory recognizes the leading technology providers in the machine-to-machine industry.

Acting as a snapshot of the companies currently leading the way in the machine-to-machine technology marketplace, the M2M 100 provides key insight into the M2M industry and how it appears today.

The 2009 M2M 100 provides evidence that the M2M marketplace is beginning to stabilize and thrive in its environment. This year 87 companies remained on the list from the previous year, up from 79 companies in 2008. This remarkable retention rate also couples with a five-year low in M&As (merger and acquisitions). The height of M&A activity was in 2006 when 32 mergers and acquisitions were announced, while the industry saw that number cut in half with just 16 occurring in 2008.

"The M2M 100 gives industry stakeholders a look at what companies are providing the best-of-the-best of what machine-to-machine technology has to offer," said Mike Carrozzo, chief editor of M2M. "These are the companies that provide the cutting-edge technology that's enhancing the practices of businesses in which M2M is deployed."

The M2M 100 is compiled from a list of more than 300 companies gathered from various sources. The editorial team at M2M magazine, along with its editorial advisory board, researches and analyzes the collected data, deciding which 100 companies will be named. Some of the criteria for selection include strength and number of customer references; establishment in the market; growth potential; and active involvement in and support for the M2M community.
