 Ottawa, Ontario (September 13, 2018) Martello Technologies Group (Martello)
(TSXV: MTLO), a provider of network performance management solutions for real-time communications that recently commenced trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”), announced today its No. 28 ranking on the 30th annual Growth 500. The Growth 500 is the definitive ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies by Canadian Business and Maclean’s and Martello is proud to be one of the top Ottawa-based companies on the list. Produced by Canada’s premier business and current affairs media brands, the Growth 500 ranks Canadian businesses on five-year revenue growth.

Martello made the 2018 Growth 500 list with five-year revenue growth of 2,231%.  This is the second year in a row that Martello has made this prestigious list. The Company climbed 20 spots from No. 48 in 2017 which reflects the aggressive moves it has made as a key player within the growing software defined networking and Unified Communications (UC) markets. Martello offers a cost-effective SD-WAN solution built for unified communications performance.

This accolade underscores Martello’s commitment to delivering cost effective and innovative SD-WAN products that allow its global clients in more than 150 countries, to stay connected 24/7, while detecting and resolving UC performance issues such as poor voice quality, before the user’s experience is impacted.

“The companies on the 2018 Growth 500 are truly remarkable. Demonstrating foresight, innovation and smart management, their stories serve as a primer for how to build a successful entrepreneurial business today,” says Deborah Aarts, Growth 500 program manager. “As we celebrate 30 years of the Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies program, it’s encouraging to see that entrepreneurship is healthier than ever in this country.”

“Martello is proud to be named once again to the Growth 500,” said John Proctor, president and CEO of Martello. “We’re pleased to be recognized as a leading Canadian technology company, with an aggressive growth strategy. We’re working ambitiously to bring innovative and cost-effective network performance management solutions to businesses facing the growing challenge of network complexity”.

This is the latest recognition for Martello in 2018, with the company receiving the INTERNET TELEPHONY SD-WAN Product of the Year Award in August and debuting on the Branham 300 listing of Canada’s top ICT (Information and Communications Technology) companies in June.
Martello went public with a TSXV listing on September 12th, following the closure of an oversubscribed $7.5 million private placement. The company’s ambitious growth plans include future merger and acquisition activity, an area in which the company has a positive track record. In December 2017, Martello merged with SD-WAN player Elfiq Networks.
