Happy 10th birthday Ephox (news, site)! 'Happy' being extra appropriate, as the company is up an impressive 91% in revenue compared to this time last year according to the Q3 numbers released this week.
The news follows a strong 2009 for the online authoring software providers whose flagship product, EditLive!, saw more than US$ 5 million in sales over the last 12 months. A handful of enterprise partnerships with big names like IBM and Open Text also nudged them in the right direction, as well as notable recognition from various sources.
Ephox reached number 755 in the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing privately held companies in America (with a 383% growth for the three-year period ended 2009) and the Silicon Valley Business Journal ranked them number 14 on the "Fast Private" list for the fastest-growing companies in Silicon Valley.
"Despite the challenging economic environment, 2009 has been very strong for Ephox," said Andrew Roberts, CEO of Ephox. "By partnering with the top content management vendors, we've been able to help the world's best brands and governments build web sites and intranets that are more effective than ever.
