Tira Wireless Ranked Canada's Third Fastest Growing Technology Company in Deloitte Technology Fast 50

Company Recognized in Canada's Most Prestigious Technology Award for the Second Consecutive Year

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 3, 2007) - Tira Wireless today announced that it has been ranked the third-fastest growing technology company in Canada in the 2007 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 awards program. The award, which ranks the 50 fastest-growing technology companies in the country based on five-year revenue growth, recognizes Tira Wireless for the second year running for its exemplary performance.

"Being recognized as a Deloitte Technology Fast 50 company is an achievement in its own right, but having Tira Wireless placed among the top three fastest growing companies in Canada is an incredible accomplishment," said Doug Barre, CEO of Tira Wireless. "Our stellar growth over the past five years reinforces the value we deliver to the mobile market. It is a testament to our commitment to our customers, the dedication of our outstanding employees and management team, and our unwavering focus on providing industry-leading technology and services."

Through a unique combination of technology, software and services, Tira Wireless solves the complex challenges that developers and publishers of mobile content face each day in creating and delivering their titles to market. At the heart of the company's comprehensive offering is Tira Jump, an extensible and interoperable technology platform that accelerates the development, porting, optimization, certification and delivery of mobile content to operator and consumer channels. Tira Wireless' jump in ranking from seventh place in the 2006 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 ranking to tying for third in 2007 is reflected in the growing base of industry-leading mobile content providers that now rely on its solution offering.

"Transforming technological innovation into business success is hard, and it's especially difficult to sustain such rapid revenue growth over five years. Tira Wireless has rapidly built a highly successful company in the Canadian technology industry and we applaud its dedication and ability to transform vision into reality," said John Ruffolo, National Leader, Technology, Media & Telecommunications Industry Group, Deloitte.
