TORONTO, June 2 /CNW/ - Only a select few businesses ever achieve the dramatic growth required to make it onto the PROFIT 100. The accomplishments of this year's PROFIT 100 are all the more remarkable considering the volatile economic climate of the past two years.

Released today, the PROFIT 100 is the definitive annual ranking of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies by five-year revenue growth. The companies that make up this year's ranking have grown their annual revenue by an astounding average of 1,752% over the last five years. Moreover, an impressive 76% turned a profit in last year's sunken economy.

This year, 11 firms from British Columbia have made the PROFIT 100 ranking, with another 25 in the Next 100. They're a diversified lot, doing business in everything from health products to marketing, to e-commerce and software.

"The PROFIT 100 winners demonstrate great foresight, agility and tenacity," says Ian Portsmouth, editor of PROFIT. "All managers of small and medium-sized businesses can learn valuable lessons from the Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies, especially which management practices drive growth in today's economy."
