Inc. Magazine today named SNL Financial to its annual list of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the U.S for the sixth time. SNL made the 2014 edition of the "Inc. 5000," with 2013 revenues over $187.9 million, a 61% increase during the past three years.

The "Inc. 5000" list ranks privately-held companies based upon three-year revenue growth through 2013, and SNL came in at No. 4,413 this year. SNL is the largest of the eight Charlottesville-based companies that made the list.

Mike Chinn, SNL's president & CEO, remarked, "We are honored, once again, to be recognized by Inc. Magazine for the continued growth and success of our company. In the past two years alone, we have expanded our product offerings to include global banking industry coverage, comprehensive data and news on the metals & mining industry, and new reporting and analytical tools for the insurance industry through the acquisition of iPartners. We have achieved all of this while improving scalability and enhancing operational excellence throughout the company, an achievement only made possible by the dedication and determination of our nearly 3,000 talented employees around the globe."


The 2014 "Inc. 5000" is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2010 to 2013. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2010. Additionally, they had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2013. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2010 is $100,000; the minimum for 2013 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the "Inc. 5000" are featured in Inc.’s September issue, which can be found at
