FrontBridge Technologies Wins Red Herring 100 Distinction

Award Recognizes Top 100 Private Companies in North America That Drive the Technology Industry's Future

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 11, 2005 -- FrontBridge Technologies Inc., a leading provider of secure managed messaging services, today announced that it has been named one of the Red Herring 100 Private Companies of North America.

"Five years after the dot-com bubble burst, innovation and entrepreneurship are thriving. The companies on this list are proof," said Red Herring editor-in-chief Joel Dreyfuss.

"FrontBridge is thrilled to be selected as a Red Herring 100 company among so many quality organizations," said Steve Jillings, president and CEO. "Being chosen by Red Herring is a testament to our Total Message Management approach and unique global distribution model, which combined have been instrumental in driving our growth and helping FrontBridge achieve profitability. FrontBridge continues to set the standard for managed messaging services and we are delighted to be recognized for our innovative technology and market success."

Red Herring's lists of private companies are an important part of the magazine's tradition of identifying new and innovative technology companies and entrepreneurs. Companies like Google and eBay were spotted in their early days by Red Herring editors as those that would change the way we live and work.

Red Herring's editorial staff rigorously evaluated more than 900 private companies through a careful analysis of financial data and subjective criteria, including quality of management, execution of strategy, and dedication to research and development. Red Herring 100 companies will be presenting their business model and strategy at the Red Herring Spring conference. Red Herring Spring will take place May 17-19 at the Monterey Plaza Hotel in Monterey, Calif.
