NORTH ANDOVER, Mass., Aug. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Inc. magazine today revealed that Semcasting, creators of the patented IP targeting technology Smart Zones®, is ranked No. 2680 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Semcasting’s revenue grew 145% from 2015 to 2018 to secure its spot on the list. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
Semcasting’s patented audience matching and attribution technology empowers marketers to onboard offline first-party data online, create new prospect audiences, identify qualified leads and monitor audience performance. The data-as-a-service company provides specialized subject matter expertise to deliver customized solutions for clients across healthcare, retail, travel, home services, financial, political and B2B industries. As regulatory and technical challenges to third-party cookies continue to grow, Semcasting’s average 85% first-party match rates allow advertisers to enjoy greater accuracy and transparency with audience targeting.
“This prestigious recognition is a testament to the need for Semcasting’s solutions as well as the commitment our team members have shown to their customers,” said Ray Kingman, CEO and co-founder of Semcasting. “Restructuring the company in 2017 to create vertical-specific teams allows us to bring a deeper understanding of audience context to each given sector. We are able to better serve the specific needs of our clients which has helped fuel Semcasting’s overall growth.”
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.

But, what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 10 to 12, 2019, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona.
