Red Herring Announces Inaugural Red Herring Small Cap 100 List 
Winners Will Be Honored at the Red Herring Fall 2005 Conference 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 12/12/05 --  Red Herring
announced today its first Red Herring Small Cap 100 list. The editors
of the Red Herring evaluated over 2,500 publicly traded technology
companies with market capitalizations of between US$300 million and
US$1 billion from North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. 
"Small-cap technology companies are what most tech startups become
after they go public," said Joel Dreyfuss, Editor-in-Chief of Red
Herring. "Red Herring's first list of small-cap companies allows us
to track the evolution of these companies. We find that small-cap
tech companies continue to be innovative even as they fulfill the
demands of a competitive public market." 
The Red Herring Small Cap 100 is based on more than simply financial
performance and growth. These public companies possess innovative
technology and smart business models that can take them to the next
level of competition. Red Herring's global perspective, provocative
outlook on the technology landscape and Red Herring Innovation Index
will make this list and conference unique and invaluable to
technology and financial executives. 
"The winners on this list are the most competitive, the most
innovative and the most promising technology companies in the
small-cap segment. We hope that the Red Herring Small Cap 100 list
will shine the light on them that they deserve," said Dreyfuss. 
The award ceremony for the Small Cap 100 will be held during the Red
Herring Fall 2005 conference, December 13th-15th in San Francisco,
California. All award winners will be profiled in issue #47 of Red
Herring magazine, on sale December 12th, which also contains Red
Herring's Top 10 Trends for 2006. The full list can also be viewed at 
Red Herring Fall 2005, dedicated to celebrating the world's most
exciting publicly traded, small-cap technology companies, will feature
keynote speeches, lively dialogue and presentations by the leaders of
the Red Herring Small Cap 100. 
The Red Herring Fall 2005 conference is an invitation-only gathering
for CEOs, select senior executives, and the investment and media
communities. To request an invitation, contact Michael Felber at
