BlackLine Systems Wins ‘2014 Deal of the Year’ Award from Los Angeles Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth

ACG LA chose financial software company following recent strategic investment from Silver Lake Sumeru; company honored alongside LA Dodgers, Live Nation Entertainment, Newegg

**LOS ANGELES – April 23, 2014 –**The Los Angeles Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG LA) has named BlackLine Systems the recipient of the ‘2014 Deal of the Year’ award following the announcement last year that the enterprise financial software company attracted a major strategic investment from Silver Lake Sumeru, the mid-market, technology-focused arm of global private equity leader Silver Lake.

Each year, ACG LA honors “exceptional companies” in the Los Angeles region, choosing from a pool of more than 100 deserving nominations. Other 2014 award recipients include the Los Angeles Dodgers, Live Nation Entertainment and e-commerce leader Newegg.com.

Under the direction of CEO and Founder Therese Tucker, BlackLine revenues have increased more than 50 percent annually for the past seven years. The company has seen substantial revenue increases since moving to a SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) business model in 2008. The recent equity investment from Silver Lake Sumeru is intended to support the company’s next phase of rapid growth.

Accounting/Finance managers and Compliance executives around the world use the BlackLine Financial Close Suite to automate traditionally manual, labor-intensive and spreadsheet-driven account reconciliation and financial close processes. BlackLine continues to add clients at an aggressive pace with a long list of global companies already on board including Aflac, AT&T, Boeing, British Gas, eBay, Eurostar International, Lafarge, Northrop Grumman, Qantas Airways and T-Mobile.

Tucker’s passion, persistence and effort have paid off with BlackLine ranking No. 15 on the 2012 list of the ‘50 Fastest’ Women-Owned/Led Companies in North America, as reported in The Wall St. Journal. In addition, BlackLine recently made the Software 500 list of the “largest and best performing software and service providers in the world” for the third year in a row and also has made the prestigious Inc. 500/5000 for the past six years, joining the ranks of such companies as Jamba Juice, Microsoft and Patagonia.

Tucker accepted the award at the ACG LA Annual Awards Ceremony last night at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles.
