BlackLine Systems Ranks No. 111 Fastest Growing Company in North America on Deloitte’s 2011 Technology Fast 500™

FINANCIAL SOFTWARE PROVIDER ATTRIBUTES ITS NEARLY 1,000 PERCENT REVENUE GROWTH TO A CONSTANT FOCUS ON CLIENT SATISFACTION, CONTINUOUS PRODUCT INNOVATION, INCREASING MARKET DEMAND

LOS ANGELES – Oct. 19, 2011 – Financial software provider BlackLine Systems ranked No. 111 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™ ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America. The 2011 rankings are based on percentage fiscal year revenue growth from 2006 to 2010.

BlackLine grew nearly 1,000 percent during this period under the direction of CEO and Founder Therese Tucker. The company attributes its success to a constant focus on client satisfaction, continuous product innovation and an increasing market demand from organizations looking to improve and streamline their account reconciliation and financial close processes.

“BlackLine, like all 2011 Technology Fast 500™ companies, has excelled in fostering innovation and channeling it into spectacular growth – against the backdrop of one of the most challenging economies in history,” said Eric Openshaw, vice chairman and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader, Deloitte LLP. “Deloitte recognizes BlackLine for its remarkable accomplishment.”

BlackLine revenues were up by 50 percent in both 2009 and 2010. The company also is already recording strong growth in 2011, with its sales team closing nearly as many new deals in the first six months of 2011 alone as in the entire calendar year 2010. The 2009 growth follows three sequential previous years where the company’s revenues doubled.

“We are pleased to honor BlackLine as a 2011 Technology Fast 500 company,” said Mark Jensen, managing partner, technology and venture capital services, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “As one of the fastest growing tech companies in North America, BlackLine has demonstrated excellence in technological innovation, entrepreneurship and rapid growth.”

BlackLine continues to add clients at an aggressive pace with a long list of global companies already on board including AT&T, Boeing, Costco, eBay and Northrop Grumman. BlackLine previously ranked No. 61 nationally, third in Los Angeles, as a Technology Fast 500™ award winner for 2010.

Overall, 2011 Technology Fast 500™ companies achieved revenue growth ranging from 134 percent to 70,211 percent from 2006 to 2010, with an average growth of 1,736 percent.
