Sitecore Wins 2011 Red Herring 100 Europe Award

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK--(Marketwire - May 31, 2011) - Sitecore, the company that has redefined Web content management, announced today it has been named to Red Herring's Top 100 Europe list, a prestigious list honoring the year's most innovative private technology ventures from the European business region.

Red Herring's Top 100 Europe list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs. The Red Herring 100 are evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria -- such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries. Sitecore joins past award winners including Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo!, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube and eBay.

"Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across Europe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Sitecore embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Sitecore should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong."

Increasingly, Sitecore's advanced products and services are retained by some of the world's strongest companies. Recently, Colliers International, Dow Chemical, Gazelle, GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals NV, Nestle Australia and Visa Europe awarded significant contracts to Sitecore after careful examination of the competition.

Revenue and earnings continue to climb rapidly as in previous years. Sitecore Group has consistently delivered growth rates of more than 50 percent. The growth is organic and based on the compelling strategic vision and well-orchestrated operational execution of the Company.
