mediaFORGE Named One of the Top 100 Fastest-Growing Companies on the 2012 Inc. 500 List

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Aug 21, 2012) - mediaFORGE, a leader in online display advertising innovation, announced today that it has ranked #55 on the 2012 Inc. 500 list, which recognizes the fastest growing private companies in America. mediaFORGE shot up to #55 on this year's list from #1,092 on last year's list, emphasizing the company's incredible growth.

mediaFORGE emerged in the dynamic display business in 2009, drawing immediate attention by building its performance-oriented business model around the value of consumers who interact, or engage, with online banner ads. mediaFORGE's Consumer Engagement model is the only challenger to the long-time industry standards, clicks and post-impression conversions. Empowered by its richly interactive, personalized ad technology, mediaFORGE 's Consumer Engagement metric only charges clients when they make money from a mediaFORGE ad -- a one-of-a kind revenue share that attributes purchases to consumer ad engagement.

As the innovator of the Consumer Engagement metric, and the technology that empowers it, mediaFORGE has experienced impressively fast growth over the last three years in online display and retargeting, thanks to its proven ability to drive tremendous results for its clients.

"From the first moment we realized that mediaFORGE's ad technology has unique potential to solve some of the biggest challenges faced by display advertisers, we have been dedicated to building our business to benefit clients above all else... and we've managed to shake up the industry in the process," says Tony Zito, CEO. "Achieving a ranking in the top 100 companies on the Inc. 500 is a testament to the value of our technology and our business model. Most of all, it is a welcome celebration of our outstanding team that is responsible for making mediaFORGE a resounding success."

The Inc. 500 list represents the most comprehensive look at America's independent entrepreneurs. In order to make the Inc. 500 list this year, each company had to achieve a minimum of 770% in sales growth over the past three years. The full list of Inc. 500 winners can be found at
