Singled out as a âsuperstar,â Fair, Isaac and Company, Inc. ranked 117 in Forbesâ annual list of âThe 200 Best Small Companies.â This marks the sixth time that the leader in decision-making technology has appeared on the national business magazineâs annual list of top companies. Fair, Isaac is also one of just two San Francisco Bay Area companies to make the elite 1998 Honor Roll, which recognizes those businesses that outperformed others on the list with better-than-average returns and exceptional growth and that have appeared repeatedly on the â200 Bestâ list.
âGoing forward, Fair, Isaac remains committed to developing ever more intelligent data-driven decision-making solutions,â said Fair, Isaac president and chief executive officer Larry Rosenberger. âThe goal is to help our clients find better ways to acquire more good customers and to keep them longer by providing them with the products and services they really want.â
The 200 companies highlighted in the November 2 issue of Forbes are selected from a database of more than 11,000 public companies with annual sales of five to $350 million.
Candidates for the Forbesâ ranking are analyzed through a computerized screening and series of financial analyses on future profitability. Return on equity and share value continue to play a key role in the screening process. Fair, Isaac beat the listâs median five-year return on equity and showed a strong balance sheet that outshines 45 percent of its colleagues on the list.Details
