VANCOUVER, Nov. 12 /CNW/ - WesternOne Equity Income Fund ("WesternOne Equity") (Toronto Stock Exchange: WEQ.UN and WEQ.DB) was ranked No.32 in BC's 50 Fastest-Growing publicly traded companies, a report from the Vancouver Sun listing British Columbia's top publicly traded companies.
In creating the ranking system, Business BC, the Vancouver Sun newspaper's business section, partnered with Ernst & Young LLP to look at a number of factors based on formulas developed by professor James Brander at the Sauder School of Business at the University of B.C. The Fastest list focuses on how factors like revenue growth, employee numbers, unit price performance and earnings per share have grown over time.
"We are honoured to receive this recognition from BC Business. It is great validation that our core businesses have been able to maintain momentum through the economic slowdown and improve on our No.35 ranking in 2008. WesternOne Equity is the only financial company featured in the Top 50 Fastest companies ranking."
"WesternOne Equity would like to thank our management, board of trustees and employees for their continued effort and commitment, and our unitholders for their continued support." said Darren Latoski, WesternOne's CEO.
