Key-Systems again “Fast 50” winner

St. Ingbert, 2010-10-23, Deloitte has again awarded the German based domain registrar Key-Systems as one of the fastest growing technology companies in Germany. With a cumulative revenue growth of 314 percent over the past five business years (2005-2009) Key-Systems is ranked 23 of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 in 2010. Thus, after having achieved rank 9 in 2008 and rank 22 in 2009, Key-Systems is continuing its successful development.

With a revenue growth of 314.24 percent over the last five years Key-Systems again reached a position among the 50 fastest growing IT and technology companies in Germany. During the Deloitte Fast 50 award ceremony held yesterday in Berlin, the domain expert was awarded for rank 23, a front position in the midfield of all nominees.

“The third Fast 50 award in three years shows that our growth and our success have a long-term basis”, Key-Systems CEO Alexander Siffrin proudly says. “Key-Systems does not only stand for innovative technology, but also for reliable and continuous services.” Dieter Schlereth, partner and industry leader TMT at Deloitte, explains: “Our award winners prove that technology companies can establish themselves in future-oriented fields also during difficult economic times. With the necessary amount of risk-taking and entrepreneurial spirit they have pursued their visions continuously and successfully.”

The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program honors business growth, technological innovation and entrepreneurial spirit by geographic region. It grew out of a program initiated in the United States in 1995. In the USA and more recently in Europe, the Fast 50 program has expanded into the Fast 500 and is a recognized benchmark of success in the technology industry. In Germany, Technology Fast 50 took place for the 8th time in 2010. Deloitte determines the front-runners of the technology business in Germany by identifying companies' cumulative growth over the last five years.
