    The global telecommunications company also ranks high in the "2008 Top
    250"

    MONTREAL, April 9 /CNW Telbec/ - OmniGlobe Networks, the privately-held
telecommunications company, is pleased to announce that it has been named as
"Canada's #1 high tech growth company" in the prestigious BRANHAM 300 listing,
achieving the highest year-over-year growth of any company appearing on the
2008 Top 250. The company, which was identified last year as a "Top 25 Up and
Comer", made its appearance in the Top 250 listing, proudly sharing the 164
position with its technology partner Conpute. The rankings, which are
published annually, were released last week in the March/April issue of
Backbone Magazine and distributed nationally through the Globe and Mail.
    BRANHAM300 is the most comprehensive and trusted source on the health of
the Canadian Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry. The Top
250 listing rates Canadian companies, solely based on sales revenue
generation. OmniGlobe Networks managed to thrive in these uncertain times, and
recorded an impressive 400% increase over 2007.
    "We are very pleased to be once again recognized on the Branham list and
to make our debut on the Top 250 list." said Jason Neale, OmniGlobe's CEO.
"Our success is down to the sheer determination and commitment of our
fantastic team and partners, coupled with top notch products and services that
help bridge the digital gap between developed areas and less developed ones by
providing vital communication services in places where there are the most
needed , in Canada and around the world."
    "To experience growth at such a paramount level in the face of economic
uncertainty is an achievement that cannot be overlooked," says Wayne
Gudbranson, President and CEO of Branham Group Inc., "It is very rare for
companies who appear as an Up and Comer one year to make such a significant
debut on the Top 250 listing the following year. OmniGlobe Networks has very
quickly emerged on the ICT scene, and solidified itself as a leader in their
industry sector."
