Impact Named to the 2018 Inc. 5000 List of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies


a natively-integrated suite of products for fraud protection, marketing
attribution and analytics, and creating and optimizing performance
partnerships, announced it has been included on Inc. Magazine's 37th
annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's
fastest-growing private companies. 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.

"Everyone at Impact is committed to answering the call of marketers
around the world who are demanding transparency, trust and performance
across their spend to scale their business growth," stated David A.
Yovanno, CEO of Impact. "This recognition is a testament to the hard
work we do to deliver a customer-driven technology platform that
transforms businesses, and continues to resonate with savvy CMOs,
marketers and their agencies. It's an honor to be recognized by Inc."

Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 (which are listed
online at, with the top 500 companies featured in the September
issue of Inc., and were made available on newsstands on August
15) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole
shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000
achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a
median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue was
$206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three

"If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it's unparalleled recognition of
your years of hard work and sacrifice," says Inc. editor in chief James
Ledbetter. "The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay.
What doesn't change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the
forces that shape our lives."

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be
held October 17 to 19, 2018, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country
Resort, in San Antonio, Texas. As always, speakers include some of the
greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
