Arrayit joins Inc 500 elite.
Sunnyvale, CA, Nov 5, 2002 – On October 15th, Inc. Magazine announced that Arrayit was chosen as one of the top 500 fastest growing privately held companies in America. The list was generated by Inc. magazine using highly stringent business management and accounting criteria including revenues, growth, and profitability over a five-year period. Of the 500 companies chosen, Arrayit was one of only two biotechnology companies on the list, and the only private company in the United States that showed profits in every evaluation period. Arrayit continues to excel through innovation and by providing superior technology and services in the biotechnology, industrial chemicals, and medical diagnostics markets.
"This is the first Inc. 500 ranking to reflect the full impact of the recession," said editor John Koten. "Yet these entrepreneurs are managing to confound the naysayers and move ahead despite the obstacles. They are showing that smart strategies can succeed even in the toughest times."
The average 5-year growth rate of this year's Inc. 500 companies is 1,521%. Inc. verifies information for every company on the list using tax forms and financial statements from certified public accountants. Former Inc. 500 companies that have gone on to be household names include Microsoft, Timberland, and Domino's Pizza.
