MONTREAL, April 8 /CNW Telbec/ - OmniGlobe Networks, the privately-held telecommunications company, is pleased to announce that it has been recognized by the Branham Group as a leader in three categories. With an impressive 109% increase in annual revenue, OmniGlobe has moved up 34 positions from last year to be ranked as 130th amongst the Canadian technology companies' elite. As a result of its impressive year-over-year growth rate, OmniGlobe has also landed the number 5 spot in the Top 10 Growth Companies category and has been named the Top 8 "Movers and Shakers" of the year. This year's ranking reflects OmniGlobe's continued expansion and robust sales growth over the past five years, both in Canada and around the world.
Jason Neale, CEO and founder of OmniGlobe Networks said "We are very proud to be once again recognized as one of the top 10 growth companies by the prestigious Branham300 listing. Despite a difficult economic environment, OmniGlobe continues to grow from strength to strength. In the past year, we have acquired RAMTelecom, substantially expanded our cellular and broadband operations in Canada and won new broadcasting contracts in the Middle East. The outlook for our business in 2010 is extremely positive and we look forward to reaching even greater success next year."
Based in Montreal, QC, OmniGlobe brings vital communications services to un-served and underserved communities around the world. The company, which has recently expanded its reach into the oil, gas, mining and forestry industries, is now dominant in the remote and rural markets across Canada. Following the acquisition of BTIG Ltd. two year ago, OmniGlobe has also strengthened its global presence and consolidated its position as a leading satellite communications provider in Europe and throughout the Middle East region. The company has recently announced the planned acquisition of Sat-Comm. Ltd later this year.
"OmniGlobe Networks has surged up the rankings on the Branham300 over the past two years, establishing itself as an emerging leader within the Canadian ICT Industry," notes Wayne Gudbranson, President & CEO of Branham Group. "Despite a difficult economic climate, OmniGlobe has continued to experience industry leading growth; an accomplishment that should celebrated and recognized both industry and company wide."
The Branham300, now in its 17th year, is widely considered to be the most comprehensive and trusted source of intelligence on the health of the ICT industry in Canada. The listings rank the Top 300 publicly- traded and privately-held organizations operating in the Canadian ICT industry by gross revenue.
