The Boston Globe Recognizes Pegasystems as a Top-Performing Public Company Based in Massachusetts

Pegasystems ranks number 25 on the Globe 100 List

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – May 29, 2013Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA) the leader in  Business Process Management (BPM) and a leading provider of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solutions, today announced that it is listed as number 25 on The Boston Globe’s annual Globe 100 ranking of the best-performing public companies in Massachusetts. Pegasystems’ inclusion in the Globe 100 is a continuation of industry accolades the company has received during the first half of 2013, which includes multiple recognitions by leading, independent industry analyst firms for accomplishments in both BPM and CRM. 

Now in its 25th year, the Globe 100 ranks the top 100 public companies in Massachusetts based on their overall financial performance. Companies are ranked based on four criteria that includes return on average equity, one-year percentage increase in revenue, one-year percentage increase in annual profit margin, and total 2012 annual revenue. The list continues to reflect the local and national economic climate. In 2010 and 2011, there were actually fewer than 100 companies on the list due to lower profits during the downturn. Last year marked the first time since 2009 that the Globe 100 list was at “full strength.”


Quotes & Commentary:

Our Build for Change® technology enables leading organizations to be more responsive and engaging with customers while becoming more efficient in their operations.

“As it always has, the Globe 100 list reflects the dynamic nature of business not only in Massachusetts but also the world,” said Steve Syre, Boston Globe business columnist and editor of the 2013 Globe 100 Magazine. “Several companies on this year’s list did not even exist when it debuted in 1989. In fact it’s quite possible those companies employ people who weren’t even born in 1989.”
