SOA Software Wins Red Herring 100 North America Award

Award Recognizes the 100 "Most Promising" Companies Driving the Future of Technology

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - May 20, 2008) - Red Herring announced that SOA Software is a recipient of the Red Herring 100 North America, an award given to the top 100 private technology companies based in the region.

"The large number of entries in this year's competition demonstrates that the economic slowdown has not affected technology innovation," said Joel Dreyfuss, editor-in-chief of Red Herring. "The companies on this year's list are proof that creative ideas continue to find the funding that turns them into promising businesses."

"We are honored to be the winner of the 2008 Red Herring 100 North Award," said Paul Gigg, President and CEO of SOA Software. "Over the past years we have continued our growth of Fortune 1000 customers, products, acquisitions and employees. This award represents industry wide recognition of our achievements to date."

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

Red Herring's editorial staff rigorously evaluated more than 800 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.

To honor the CEOs of Red Herring 100 North America companies, Red Herring invited each one to present his or her company at its Red Herring North America 2008 event, May 12-14, at the San Jose Fairmont. As the venue for the unveiling of the Top 100 private companies in North America, this event draws unparalleled attention from decision makers and industry observers across the continent. This year marks the 11th anniversary of the Red Herring 100 Awards.
