I saw this two days ago but it really doesn`t tell you anything at all. If you revenue increases from 1000 dollars the first year to 1 million dollars the third year then I bet this would place your company quite high on the list of top 500 companies in Europe. ;)

I agree, a percentage tells you nothing! You need to know the numbers behind. What was the revenue in 1999? $1, $10? I don't know. A 5352% growth might sound like a lot but you need to know the starting point.
Also, I am not so focused on revenues alone. What about profits? You can't live on revenues alone, I thought the late 90s taught us all that :)

but the nice thing is that they're a public company, so that info is available.

The problem is that they don`t show the financials for 1999 which is included in the 3-years statistcs from Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu. Most likely the revenue for 1999 is very modest since this was the year after the startup of the company.

As you can se from slide no. 7 in the Corporate Presentation that Fast made on November the 6th. the revenue for 1999 was insignificant, hence this huge percentual increase over the last 3 years.
