Zango Ranked Number Five in Deloitte's Technology Fast 50 Program for Washington State

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - October 1, 2007) - Zango (http://www.zango.com) today announced that its five-year revenue growth of 2,279% ranked the Bellevue-based online media company as the fifth fastest-growing technology company in Washington State, according to Deloitte's prestigious Technology Fast 50 Program.

Deloitte's Fast 50 is a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, and life sciences companies in the region by Deloitte & Touche USA LLP (www.deloitte.com/dtt/home/0,1044,stc%253DHOME%2526lid%253D2,00.html), one of the nation's leading professional services organizations. Deloitte ranks qualified companies based on percentage revenue growth over the five-year period between 2002-2006.

"It is an honor to be named to Deloitte's prestigious group of fastest-growing technology companies," said Keith Smith, CEO of Zango. "Our growth and success is a true testament to the unwavering dedication of Zango employees in the pursuit and successful execution of Zango's Content Economy vision."

"Sustaining high revenue growth over five years is an exceptional accomplishment. We commend Zango for making the commitment to technology and delivering on the promise of market longevity," said Larry Hile, a partner in Deloitte's Technology, Media & Telecommunications (TMT) practice in Seattle. "We are proud to honor Zango to Deloitte's Technology Fast 50."

To qualify for the Technology Fast 50, companies must have had operating revenues of at least $50,000 in 2002 and $5,000,000 in 2006, be headquartered in North America, and be a company that owns proprietary technology or proprietary intellectual property that contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues, or devotes a significant proportion of revenues to the research and development of technology. Using other companies' technology or intellectual property in a unique way does not qualify.

Companies from the 16 regional Technology Fast 50 programs in the United States and Canada are automatically entered in Deloitte's Technology Fast 500 program, which ranks North America's top 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies.
