NEW YORK, August 17, 2016—Data Systems Analysts, Inc. (DSA), a leading provider of secure information management solutions to the Federal Government market, was named to Inc. magazine’s ninth annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment: its independent small businesses. This year marks DSA’s eighth inclusion in the rankings.
“We are proud of our growth and recognize that our success is due to our strong relationships with our customers and providing superior service,” said Fran Pierce, President and CEO of DSA.
The 2016 Inc. 5000—unveiled online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc.—is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8 percent of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.
“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great—usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
The 2016 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2012 to 2015. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2012. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2015. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2012 is $100,000; the minimum for 2015 is $2 million.
