New York, New York – (The Hosting News) – January 4, 2006 – Pay per click search engine company, MIVA, Inc., has been ranked 46th on the 2005 Deloitte Global Technology Fast 500, a ranking by Deloitte and Touche of the 500 fastest-growing technology companies. Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth for the five years between 2000 and 2004, a period during which MIVA grew at a rate of more than 5,000 percent.
According to Craig Pisaris-Henderson, chairman and CEO of MIVA, ”We are very pleased to be recognized by a prestigious organization like Deloitte.”
Over the five year period, MIVA’s growth was driven by a combination of new customer acquisition and mergers. In the most recent year covered by the rankings, growth was driven primarily by acquisitions and the unification of FindWhat, Espotting and Comet Systems, among others, under the MIVA brand.
Previously FindWhat ranked 21st on the North American Deloitte Technology Fast 500 in 2004, and Seventh in 2003. In 2002, the Company ranked first among the Deloitte New York Technology Fast 50 Rising Stars (and 11th in North America), an award given to companies that do not have five years of growth to qualify for the Fast 500, but have three years of growth.
