IDC recognized as one of fastest growing Canadian technology companies in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50



    CALGARY, Sept. 25 /CNW/ - IDC (Imaging Dynamics Company Ltd.) (TSX: IDL),
the global leader in the rapidly growing market for digital radiography (DR),
today announced it is ranked among the Deloitte Technology Fast 50, a ranking
of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Canada, based on the
percentage of revenue growth over five years. IDC's increase in revenues of
382 percent from 2003 to 2007 resulted in a 36 ranking nationally. IDC ranked
number 4 in Alberta.
    For over a decade, the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program has tracked
the successful growth of Canadian-grown global leaders. Now Canada's
pre-eminent technology award program, the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 augments
the broader Deloitte North American Technology Fast 500 initiative, with
winners automatically eligible for this elite ranking.
    "Transforming technological innovation into business success is hard, and
it's especially difficult to sustain such rapid revenue growth over five
years. IDC has rapidly built a highly successful company in the Canadian
technology industry and we applaud their dedication and ability to transform
their vision into reality," said John Ruffolo, National Leader, Technology,
Media & Telecommunications Industry Group, Deloitte.
    IDC's President & CEO Tom Boon, credits IDC's innovative CCD-based
digital radiography technology and strong value proposition with the company's
382 percent revenue growth. Boon said, "It is with great pleasure that we
receive this prestigious award and be recognized for our continued growth in
this competitive global healthcare market."
    "Canadian technology companies have some of the highest revenue growth in
North America, while playing in some of the world's largest, most competitive
and exciting market sectors," explains Ruffolo. "Outstanding companies such as
IDC demonstrate the incredible business acumen and entrepreneurial spirit that
fuel the Canadian technology industry."
    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. A panel of industry
experts evaluates and judges companies based on four key criteria: competitive
advantage; size, growth, and market attractiveness; management effectiveness
and organization; and financial performance.
