Tanner Research Captures Fast 50 Award for Fifth Consecutive Year

Exceptional Revenue Growth recognized by Deloitte & Touche

For release August 26, 2002
(626) 471-9700

PASADENA, California -- August 26, 2002 -- For the fifth year in a row, Tanner Research has been named to Deloitte & Touche's prestigious "Technology Fast 50" program for the Los Angeles area, a ranking of the 50 fastest-growing technology companies in the region. Inclusion is based on the percentage of growth in fiscal year revenues during the five-year period from 1997 through 2001.

"Making this list just once is a difficult accomplishment, so we're especially pleased to be included for a fifth time," states John Tanner, founder and CEO of Tanner Research, Inc. "Tanner was a startup in 1988, long before the dotcom surge. We've matured and thrived in the EDA (electronic design automation) field in part because we've weathered a lot since then. We are very resilient. We've learned how to handle both the slowdowns and the dramatic upswings that are integral to the software field."

Slow and Steady Wins the Race
"Tanner has a conservative approach. We've had years with over 100% growth rate in revenues, profit and number of employee--and single-digit years," continues Tanner. "While we enjoy the flush times, we don't expect them to be the norm. When it comes to growing the business and developing our product, we have long-term goals and we stick to them. We define our product roadmap by listening to our users and we commit to delivering those features. We're proud that even in the current economic climate we have remained among the handful of fastest growing tech firms in Southern California."

To determine the fastest growing technology companies, Deloitte & Touche's accounting experts review competing company's revenues for the past five years, calculate the growth percentage, and then compare the growth of all companies in the region.

To qualify for consideration, a company must have had operating revenues of at least $1,000,000 in 2001, must be public or privately held with headquarters in North America, and own proprietary technology that contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues.
