As a winner of the Technology Fast 50 Award, SYS-CON was also nominated for the national competition for the 500 fastest-growing technology companies in the United States, the Technology Fast 500 Awards, with results to be announced later this year.

In 1999, SYS-CON Media was ranked 194 by Inc. 500 on the list of America's fastest-growing privately owned companies. SYS-CON was nominated again for Inc. 500 in 2001 and is awaiting the results. The 2001 ranking of Technology Fast 50 is based on percentage of corporate revenue growth over the five-year period between 1996 and 2000. Winners include both public and private corporations.

"We are delighted to be a 2001 New Jersey Technology Fast 50 winner," said Fuat Kircaali, founder and CEO of SYS-CON Media. "Although we have experienced consistent growth since 1994, the year the company was founded, only after SYS-CON turned five years old were we eligible for these nominations. This year, based on our 2000 operating results, we are confident that our company will be named as one of America's fastest-growing companies once again by Inc. 500, as well as by Deloitte & Touche Technology Fast 500." In 2000, Fuat Kircaali was nominated by Ernst & Young for their Entrepreneur of the Year award.

Technology Fast 50 winners will be honored at an annual awards breakfast on August 16, 2001. Winners of last year's New Jersey Technology Fast 50 included IDT Corp., Programmer's Paradise, Novasoft, Neil Laboratories, Computer Horizons, and Hexaware Technologies.

SYS-CON received the Technology Fast 50 award based on a 1,075% five-year revenue growth between 1996 and 2000. SYS-CON's prior national recognition, the 1999 Inc. 500 award was given based on a 1,307% five-year revenue growth between 1994 and 1998.

The company's first national recognition, published in Inc. magazine's October 1999 special Inc. 500 issue and reaching over 2.5 million readers, was an exclusive report on the companies and CEOs who are changing the face of American business. Noteworthy alumni include household corporate names such as: Microsoft, Oracle, WordPerfect, CompUSA, Gateway 2000, Intuit, e*Trade, Timberland, Jenny Craig, and Domino's Pizza.
