Each year, the Orange County Business Journal provides a ranking of the fastest growing Orange County-based companies that trade on U.S. stock exchanges. Rankings for 2012 were determined based on the percentage of trailing 12-month revenue growth from June 30, 2010, to June 30, 2012. Companies must have recorded sales of at least $300,000 for the 12 months ended June 30, 2010. Furthermore, sales for the 12 months ended June 30, 2012, must represent at least 13% revenue growth as compared with the two-year prior period. Based on these criteria, 69 companies were included on the 2012 Fastest-Growing Public Companies list. The Orange County Business Journal compiled the financial data with the help of Los Angeles-based investment bank B. Riley & Co., along with regulatory filings and other sources.
