DSA Named to Inc. Magazine’s List of Fastest Growing Private Companies in the U.S.

Information Technology Company Recognized a Second Time

Fairfax, Virginia, August 31, 2009 Data Systems Analysts (DSA), a provider of enterprise-wide information technology solutions and security services to government and industry, announced today that the company has once more been recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing private companies in the United States.

"To be the recipient of this award twice in three years is testimony to the hard work and dedication of DSA's employees. It's through their efforts that DSA continues to grow, despite the tight economy," said President and CEO, Fran Pierce.

The 2009 Inc. 5000 serves as a unique report card on the U.S. economy. Despite the ongoing recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $214 billion, up $29 billion from last year, with a median three-year growth rate of 126 percent. The Inc. 5000 are responsible for creating more than 1 million jobs since their founding, making the list perhaps the best example of the impact private, fast-growing companies can have on the economy. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found on Inc.com.

"Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate," said Inc. 5000 project manager Jim Melloan. "That's why our list is so eagerly anticipated every year."

The Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2005 through 2008. To qualify, companies have to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent -- not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies -- as of December 31, 2008. The top 10 percent of companies on the list comprise the Inc. 500, now in its 28th year.
