LANSING, Mich., July 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Fortune Magazine has named Neogen Corporation (Nasdaq: NEOG) as a selection in its annual list of America's 100 fastest growing small public companies (FSB 100).
In announcing its FSB 100 for 2009, Fortune stated: "In good times the FSB 100 constitutes an elite group of small public companies: the best of the best, measured by revenue growth and stock performance over the past three years. But in this Great Recession, their performance is nothing short of miraculous."
"We are very pleased that this respected financial publication has once again recognized our company's financial performance as one of the best in America," said James Herbert, Neogen's CEO. "In the financial community, as well as in our food and animal safety industry, trust is earned. We're extremely proud of the trust we've earned from our customers and investors to make this recognition possible."
In making its selection, Fortune said: "Consider Neogen (number 21 on the list), a firm that specializes in products designed to enhance food safety. Food crises, involving everything from bum lettuce to tainted peanut butter, have occurred with alarming frequency of late. Based in Lansing, Mich., Neogen supplies large foodmakers with detection kits that allow them to self-test for contaminants and allergens, helping prevent mistakes that could lead to deadly consequences."
In addition to its number 21 ranking on the FSB 100 list, Fortune featured Neogen as one of five companies "Thriving In Hard Times." Fortune's ninth annual list of the fastest-growing small public companies in America includes U.S.-based firms with annual revenues of less than $200 million and a stock price greater than $1.
