H2O Innovation Once Again Recognized As One of Canada's 200 Fastest-Growing Companies Over The Last Five Years

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - June 1, 2011) - H2O Innovation Inc. ("H2O Innovation" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:HEO)(ALTERNEXT:MNEMO:ALHEO) is honoured to announce that it has been named for a second consecutive year to the 23rd annual PROFIT 200 ranking of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies by PROFIT Magazine. H2O Innovation ranks 67th based on the 867% growth of its revenues over the last five fiscal years (ending June 30, 2010 for H2O Innovation).

"Being recognized for a second year in a row as one of the fastest-growing companies in Canada over a five-year period is an accomplishment we are very proud of. We could not have recorded this sustained long-term growth without our people, our long list of reference projects, our comprehensive offering of water treatment solutions, and a strong market demand for them," stated Frédéric Dugré, President and CEO of H2O Innovation Inc. "We are actively engaged in the growth of our company, and, looking ahead, we will seek to expand our presence in the fast growing mining and oil & gas industries in Canada, as well as our international activities."

H2O Innovation's revenue growth over the past five years is the result of a combination of organic growth coupled with the successful integration of acquired businesses and the implementation of strategic partnerships such as the Company's Indian joint-venture, H2O Innovation India Ltd.

Ranking Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies by five-year revenue growth, the PROFIT 200 profiles the country's most successful growth companies. Published in the Summer issue of PROFIT and online at PROFITguide.com, the PROFIT 200 is Canada's largest annual celebration of entrepreneurial achievement.

"PROFIT is proud to celebrate their achievements and ambitions, and we encourage all business people to learn more about the many ways they've come so far, so fast."
