This is a special honor, reflecting the genuine dedication and hard work of our employees worldwide. - Doug Shaw, president and chief executive officer
Woburn, MA (PRWEB) May 21, 2013
Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: TYPE), a leading provider of typefaces, technology and expertise for creative applications and consumer devices, has been listed at No. 28 on the “Globe 100” list of top-performing public companies in Massachusetts by The Boston Globe.
This is the fifth time in as many years that Monotype has been eligible for the distinction and named to the list, now in its 25th year.
“This is a special honor, reflecting the genuine dedication and hard work of our employees worldwide,” said Doug Shaw, president and chief executive officer. “2012 was a very strong year for Monotype, as a growing number of brands turned to us for the typefaces, technology and expertise they needed to deliver high-quality user experiences. Moving forward, we remain firmly committed to helping customers succeed in a complex world where content flows across multiple platforms, devices and media.”
“As it always has, the Globe 100 list reflects the dynamic nature of business not only in Massachusetts but also the world. 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,” said Steve Syre, Boston Globe business columnist and editor of the 2013 Globe 100 Magazine.
About the Globe 100 ranking methodology
The Globe 100 ranks Massachusetts-based public companies based on financial data from the four quarters ending Dec. 31, 2012. To be eligible, the company must be traded publicly for the entire 2012 calendar year on the New York Stock Exchange, the Nasdaq or the American Stock Exchange and report revenue and profit for both 2011 and 2012.
