HOUSTON (August 14, 2009) – Excalibur Exhibits is proud to announce that it has been named on Inc. Magazine’s annual publication of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. for the second year in a row. The list is the most comprehensive look at what many consider to be the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs. Moving up the list from 2008, Excalibur Exhibits is ranked 3,740 nationally in the Advertising and Marketing category. When the list is narrowed to just the Greater Houston area, Excalibur Exhibits is ranked 83rd. The company has grown steadily and reported a 60.4% growth in revenue since 2004. Founded in 1997, Excalibur Exhibits employs 24 employees at its 50,000 square foot Houston facility. “Even in today’s challenging business climate, Excalibur Exhibits has been able to maintain a positive net income by successfully managing our business, our expenses, and our investments. Our success is attributed to our ability to find creative ways for our clients to stretch their marketing budgets and garner measurable results,” offered Peggy Swords, President and Founder of Excalibur Exhibits. About Inc. 5000 List The 2009 Inc. 500 measures revenue growth from 2005 through 2008.
