Archer Technologies Again Ranked as One of America's Fastest Growing Companies by Inc. Magazine

With Three-Year Sales Growth of 215 Percent, Archer Continues to Strengthen Its Market Leadership as a Governance, Risk and Compliance Solution Innovator

OVERLAND PARK, KS--(Marketwire - August 18, 2009) - Archer Technologies, a provider of enterprise governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced that it has been named to Inc. Magazine's Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States for the third consecutive year. The list offers a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy -- America's independent-minded entrepreneurs.

"Archer's 215 percent revenue growth during the last three years reflects our customers' ongoing need for best-practice solutions to eliminate wasteful manual processes and rapidly adapt in an evolving risk and regulatory climate," said Jon Darbyshire, Archer's founder and CEO. "It's a great achievement for Archer's dedicated employees to be recognized for a third consecutive year on the Inc. 5000. Their commitment to Archer's success in delivering innovative solutions and exceptional customer service enables us to consistently achieve rapid revenue growth rates well above the industry average."

Archer's out-of-the-box software solutions allow companies to implement a best-in-class enterprise governance, risk and compliance program. With a diverse client list that includes more than 25 percent of the Fortune 100, Archer is the only GRC technology provider to deliver an ecosystem of tools and services to fuel client success. This ecosystem includes the Archer Community, an online social network that fosters collaboration among clients, partners and product experts, and the Archer Exchange, an online marketplace for GRC applications, content, services and integration solutions.

"Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate," said Inc. 5000 project manager Jim Melloan. "That's why our list is so eagerly anticipated every year."

The 2009 Inc. 5000 serves as a unique report card on the U.S. economy. Despite the ongoing recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $214 billion, up $29 billion from last year, with a median three-year growth rate of 126 percent. The Inc. 5000 are responsible for creating more than 1 million jobs since their founding; making the list perhaps the best example of the impact private, fast-growing companies can have on the economy.
