MyLife.com® Selected as a Finalist for the 2012 Red Herring 100 Global Award

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 29, 2012) - MyLife.com® today announced that it has been selected as a candidate for Red Herring's 2012 Top 100 Global award, a prestigious recognition honoring the year's most audacious and far reaching private technology companies and entrepreneurs from across the globe. MyLife is honored amongst noteworthy technology companies such as Zuora, Appcelerator, Cloudera, Gigya and others.

The Red Herring editorial team selected the companies demonstrating the most innovative technologies and business models originating from over 1000 companies from over 40 nations. These companies, representing past Red Herring Asia, Europe and North America awards, are judged on a range of qualitative and quantitative metrics, including but not limited to, technology innovation, financial performance, growth criterion, management's execution standards, potential globalization of the strategy and market share improvement.

"When I look at the list of companies that Red Herring is recognizing this year, I'm proud that MyLife is distinguished alongside some of the most innovative mobile, cloud and Internet companies in the world," said Jeffrey Tinsley, founder and CEO of MyLife. "Our teams have been hustling day in and day out, year after year, to provide the central platform to manage all of your connections and communication. That hard work has directly resulted in being honored in this forum -- and for that, we are excited and gratified."

"Technology companies are becoming the bright spot in the economic outlook based on their increasing role within macro-economic environments," stated Alex Vieux, Chairman of Red Herring. "2012 has confirmed the sector's vibrant activity and its resilience to widespread economic problems. An unprecedented number of entrepreneurs are attempting to jump ahead of the competition and aspire to make a difference. Breakthroughs obsolete each other faster than ever before. MyLife has performed exceptionally in its field and strongly deserves to be singled out as one of the Red Herring Global Finalists. At this stage, we are left with the daunting task to select the best qualified companies for the 2012 Top 100 Global Award."
