Entrepreneur Magazine Names Bills.com #3 on Hot 100 list

Bills.com lands spot as one of fastest growing companies in America

SAN MATEO, Calif., April 2008 — From a database of nearly 21 million companies reviewed by Entrepreneur magazine and research provider CentrisPoint, Bills.com has been named #3 on the list of the nation’s Hot 100 fast-growth businesses.

Bills.com earned its ranking on the list for criteria including rapid sales growth and positive job growth, among other select criteria.

With partner company Freedom Financial Network, LLC, Bills.com employed 320 employees at the end of 2007 in its San Mateo, Sacramento, and Tempe (Ariz.) offices. The company projects a total of 550 employees by the end of 2008, and 750 in 2009. The company has realized a compound annualized growth rate in sales over the past three years of 294 percent, growing by 173 percent in 2007, with revenues of $43.5 million.

The Hot 100 ranking appears in the May 2008 issue of Entrepreneur, on newsstands April 22. Of the nearly 21 million companies on the preliminary list, only 0.3% made the first cut, and just a fraction of those made it to the Hot 100, according to Entrepreneur. "This year’s Hot 100 listing reveals the shining stars continuing to drive the nation’s economy forward," says Karen Axelton, the magazine’s executive editor. "These companies, and the entrepreneurs who built them, are making a major impact on the economy with their revenue and the new jobs they create as a result of their growth. The innovation, persistence and passion they demonstrate in industries across the board are vital to the nation’s success as a whole."

Entrepreneur Magazine’s 14th consecutive ranking of America’s top fast-growth companies lists businesses with total combined 2007 revenue of $4.6 billion. The Hot 100 are expected to employ more than 15,000 individuals by 2009, an increase from a total of 517 employees on their first day of business.
