FiberLight Recognized for 2nd Year as One of America’s Fastest Growing Companies by Inc Magazine

Atlanta, GA– Inc. magazine announced today that FiberLight, LLC, one of the nation’s leading providers of mission critical, high performance fiber optic networks, ranked 923rd in the top 5,000 companies in the U.S. and 30th in the telecom industry. In 2010, FiberLight was ranked 1,089th and 46th in the telecom industry by Inc. magazine.

To be selected as one of the fastest-growing, privately held companies in America for the Inc. 500/5000 award, companies must show extraordinary year-over-year growth for a minimum of 3 years. FiberLight grew by 330% in the three-year period ending in 2010.

In a letter acknowledging the award, Inc. magazine Editor in Chief Jane Berentson wrote, “Your extraordinary success is truly worth celebrating,” Ms. Berentson stated. “With this accomplishment, FiberLight joins the rarified company of enterprises that have appeared on the list multiple times, many of which have grown to become national icons.”

FiberLight has diversified its product line to include a full portfolio of LightSource® products serving government, enterprise, education, telecom carrier and web-centric businesses requiring high capacity, end-to-end network solutions. Earlier this year, FiberLight launched its LightSource Dedicated IP product, coupling the launch of the new service with an enhanced focus on delivering private fiber solutions with the latest cloud enablement network services.

“In our experience, we have found that innovation, risk taking, careful planning, resource management and outstanding people and assets are hallmarks of all successful companies,” Michael P. Miller, CEO and Founder of FiberLight said. “FiberLight has continued to evolve, creating jobs for our communities and value for our customers, despite the surrounding economy. We believe our ability to remain successful while maintaining a high EBITDA and low debt ratio would not be possible without the support and commitment of our customers, partners, vendors and employees, and we are grateful for their efforts.”
