Controle Ranks No. 994 on the 2016 Inc. 5000
with Three-Year Sales Growth of 402%

 

NEW YORK, August 17, 2016Inc. magazine today ranked Controle No. 994 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000 list, 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. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

“Considering that there are over 18 million private companies in the US, being in the top 1000 fastest growing of them all over the past 4 years is an outstanding achievement by our team at Controle and a real honor,” stated Kevin Barnicle, Founder and CEO of Controle. “Our growth is a testament to the value we have brought our customers and partners.  Every day we continue to bring more solutions to the eDiscovery and Information Governance markets, and we do not see our growth slowing down anytime soon.”

The 2016 Inc. 5000 list has been unveiled online at Inc.com, and the top 500 companies will be featured in the September issue of Inc. (available in newsstands August 23). The companies featured are the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. 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% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. 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 at www.inc.com/inc5000.

“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 annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 18 through 20, in San Antonio, TX. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as best-selling author and strategist Tony Robbins; SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice; Cornerstone OnDemand founder, president and CEO Adam Miller; Marvell Technology Group director and co-founder Weili Dai; and New Belgium Brewing co-founder and executive chair Kim Jordan.

Methodology

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 had to 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. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.
