March 31, 2010 – NCI is proud to announce its listing in the prestigious 2010 Edition of the Branham300, the most comprehensive and trusted source of information on the health of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Industry in Canada. The Branham300 demonstrates the depth and breadth of innovative technology offered by Canadian companies and the contribution these organizations make to the economy both nationally and provincially.
“The Branham300 has constantly evolved and grown in an effort to provide ICT Industry stakeholders with the most accurate information on the happenings within the Canadian ICT Industry,” said Wayne Gudbranson, President and CEO of Branham Group. “However, during its 17-year history, the vision behind the listing has remained the same – The Branham300 strives to raise the profile of the Canadian ICT Industry and recognize its leaders on both a National and International stage.“
Albeit turbulent, 2009 closed out an extremely successful decade for the Canadian Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Industry. The economic environment that developed in late-2008 and remained for much of 2009 resulted in a mix of opportunity and hardship for the Industry’s leading firms, with the Top 250 companies appearing on this year’s Branham300 combining to generate $71.32 billion in revenue, down six per cent compared to 2008, but up 43 per cent compared to 2003; the first year that Branham compiled its Top 250 listing.
