Ascalade achieves its first ranking in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50



    RICHMOND, BC, Sept. 20 /CNW/ - Ascalade Communications Inc. ("Ascalade"
or "the Company") (TSX: ACG) announced today it has made its first entry on
the 2007 Deloitte Technology Fast 50, a ranking of the 50 fastest-growing
technology companies in Canada. The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program has
tracked the successful growth of Canadian-grown global leaders since 1997.
    To qualify for the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 ranking, companies must
have been in business for at least five years, have revenues of at least
$5 million, be headquartered in Canada, own proprietary technology, and
conduct research and development activities in Canada. Winners are determined
by a panel of experts who evaluate and judge companies based on four key
criteria: competitive advantage; size, growth and market attractiveness;
management effectiveness and organization; and financial performance.
    "We are honoured to be recognized with other prestigious Canadian high
technology companies for our past business accomplishments," said Dr. Edmund
Ho, Chairman and CEO of Ascalade. "In the years ahead, Ascalade will continue
to strive to take on the opportunities and improve profitability by developing
and delivering innovative solutions to our strategic customers and partners."
