Ubisense attributes its 15324% revenue growth to its world-beating precise real-time location system driving huge costs out of the businesses of its customers, delivering an ROI in less than 12 months for companies like BMW, Cummins, Honda and Boeing.

Cambridge, UK - Oct 29 2008...  Ubisense today announced that it ranked number two in the 2008 Deloitte Technology Fast 50, a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in the UK. Rankings are based on average percentage revenue growth over five years: Ubisense grew 15324 per cent during this period.

Ubisense’s CEO, Richard Green credits his world class team, intellectual property and their determination to make its customers succeed with the company’s 15324% revenue growth over the past five years. He said, "With such talented people the company can do amazing things for our customers and see no limits to growing this to be Cambridge’s next billion $ company".

“Growing the top line enough to make the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 is especially meaningful during tough economic times for the technology sector,” comments David Halstead, lead partner for the Deloitte Fast 50.

“The Fast 50 provides a fascinating view of the evolving structure of the UK's tech sector, with software and internet businesses making up the bulk of the fastest growing companies. While their products and services are at the extreme cutting edge of global technology, it is important to note that it is not just technology that makes these companies leaders in their sectors – it is about the quality of the people and their Intellectual Property (IP).”

Fast 50 Selection and Qualifications
The Fast 50 list is compiled from Deloitte’s nominations submitted directly to the Fast 50, and public company database research. To qualify for the Fast 50, entrants must have had 2003 operating revenues of at least £34,000. Deloitte researchers examined financial statements to validate operating revenues.

Entrants must also be public or private companies headquartered in a participating region of the UK and must be a “technology company,” defined as a company that owns proprietary technology that contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues; or devotes a significant proportion of revenues to the research and development of technology. Using other companies' technology in a unique way does not qualify.
