ROCK HILL, South Carolina, December 03, 2014 – 3D Systems(NYSE:DDD) today announced that it was named one of America’s Best Small Companies in Forbes’ 2014 list of the top 100 public companies in the U.S. with less than $1 billion dollars in sales. 3DS claimed the 43rdspot in the distinguished annual report, which ranks firms based on earnings growth, sales growth, return on equity and stock performance vis-à-vis an industry peer group, over both 1- and 5-year periods.
This is 3DS’ second major distinction from Forbes in 2014. In July, the company ranked 13th in Forbes’ list of the Most Innovative Growth Companies with a market capitalization under $10 billion. This annual index singles out the top 100 companies that have demonstrated continued growth through innovation, and is calculated using a proprietary formula from Credit Suisse HOLT, which determines an “innovation premium” based on investors’ beliefs that a company “will continue to come up with profitable new growth.”
“It is a tremendous tribute to everyone at 3DS to be named as one of America’s Best Small Companies in 2014 by Forbes, after being recognized by the publication for our innovative growth potential earlier this year,” said Avi Reichental, President and CEO, 3DS. “These accolades reflect the unified commitment of our global team, the strong fundamentals of our business, and our ability to deliver long-term value to our customers by offering the most comprehensive portfolio of 3D products and services available today.”
