PeopleFinders.com Ranked Number 24 in Deloitte's Technology Fast 50 Program for Silicon Valley Internet, Media, Entertainment and Communications Companies

Company attributes innovative people search services to its 872 Percent Revenue Growth

Sacramento, CA – November 5, 2008 – PeopleFinders.com (www.peoplefinders.com), the premier online service that helps consumers quickly find and connect with anyone, anywhere, today announced it has been named to Deloitte's Technology Fast 50 Program for Silicon Valley Internet, Media, Entertainment and Communications companies. Rankings are based on the percentage revenue growth over five years from fiscal year 2003–2007. PeopleFinders.com's increase in revenues of 872 percent from fiscal year 2003 to 2007 resulted in a ranking of number 24 in the Technology Fast 50 for Silicon Valley.

"Deloitte's Silicon Valley Technology Fast 50 companies have shown the strength, vision and tenacity to succeed in today's very competitive technology environment," said Mark Jensen, Managing Partner, National Venture Capital Services, Deloitte & Touche LLP, in Silicon Valley. "We applaud the successes of PeopleFinders.com and acknowledge it as one of the very few to accomplish such a fast growth rate over the past five years."

"Deloitte's recognition of PeopleFinders.com is testament to the inherent value delivered by our people search service – whether a consumer is reconnecting with an old friend, performing a background check on a date, or gaining peace of mind about those living in their neighborhood," said Bryce Lane, president and COO of PeopleFinders.com. "For nearly two decades we have been the industry's most trusted resource for people search information, and our vision remains focused on helping consumers more quickly find and connect with each other."

To qualify for the Technology Fast 50, companies must have had operating revenues of at least $50,000 in fiscal year 2003 and $5,000,000 in fiscal year 2007, be headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area, and be a company that owns proprietary technology or proprietary intellectual property that contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues; or devotes a significant proportion of revenues to the research and development of technology. Using other companies' technology or intellectual property in a unique way does not qualify.

Companies from the regional Technology Fast 50 programs in the United States and Canada are automatically entered in Deloitte's Technology Fast 500 program, which ranks North America's top 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies.

This year's Silicon Valley Technology Fast 50 program is co-presented by Deloitte, Silicon Valley Bank, Korn/Ferry International, Cooley Godward Kronish LLP, Cornish & Carey Client Solutions, and ABD Insurance and Financial Services – A Wells Fargo Company.
