(PRLEAP.COM) December 10, 2014 – The Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA 2014 ranked HIRO Media at 7th place, according to the company, who is the largest independent video content SSP. The Fast 500 is a ranking of the top 500 fastest growing technology companies. The magazine bases its rankings on the past five years of percentage revenue growth.
HIRO Media showed a growth rate during the past five years of 22,219%. Much of this growth is credited to the company’s “Daytime of the Internet” platform, which highlights the strength of their casual viewership. Also contributing are the industry-leading content-syndication-monetization solutions that HIRO Media provides. These solutions are not only simple, but also wide-ranging and effective.
According to the CEO of HIRO Media, Ariel Napchi, this ranking in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA is extremely exciting, not only for HIRO Media, but for the industry as a whole. He believes that the ranking, along with the level of the company’s growth over the past five years proves not only HIRO Media’s commitment to providing the highest level of client service in the industry, but also underlines the strength of HIRO’s casual viewership platform. Napchi also notes that being recognized and highlighted as a leader within the industry during such a crucial time for the industry as a whole is also thrilling.
Deloitte UK and partner at the head of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA program David Halstead notes that this ranking displays the “commitment to innovation” and the desire to push the industry to move forward that HIRO Media possesses. Halstead also points out that HIRO Media has demonstrated through their massive growth rate over the past five years that as leaders they have the vision and fortitude to flourish in a market that is supremely competitive.
Not only did HIRO Media receive a prestigious ranking from the Deloitte Technology Fast , but they also were awarded 4th place in the 2014 Israel Deloitte Technology Fast 50, a ranking list that comprises the top 50 fastest growing technology firms in Israel.
The average overall growth rate for companies ranking on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA 2014 was 1,711%.
Selection of Qualification for Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA
The list for the Technology Fast 500 is assembled by the Deloitte EMEA Technology Fast 50 program in combination with nominations that have been directly submitted to the Technology Fast 500, and research done on public company databases. The qualifications necessary for the Technology Fast 500 include €50,000 minimum base-year operating revenues in addition to €800,000 minimum operating revenues for the current year of operation.
Any entrant considered must be a ‘technology company’, either public or private, whose headquarters are based in the EMEA. By definition, a ‘technology company’ is known as a company that either owns or develops technology which is proprietary to them and comprises a substantial percentage of their operating revenue, or a company that manufactures a product related to technology, or a company which accords a large percentage of their efforts to the research and creation and implementation of technology in some form. A company which makes use of technology belonging to another company does not qualify, even if the application of the technology is unique.
