GENWI Short Listed in the Top 200 Among Hundreds of Submissions

LOS ALTOS, CA--(Marketwire - May 10, 2012) - GENWI, the leader in cloud publishing, today announced that it has been selected as a Finalist for Red Herring's Top 100 Americas award, a prestigious list honoring the year's most promising private technology ventures from the North American business region.

The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds from across North America. The nominees are evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.

This unique assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the actual track record and standing of a company, which allows Red Herring to see past the "buzz" and make the list a valuable instrument for discovering and advocating the greatest business opportunities in the industry.

"This year was very rewarding," said Alex Vieux, publisher and Chairman of Red Herring. "There are so many great companies producing truly innovative and amazing products and technologies. We had a very difficult time narrowing the field and selecting the Finalists from such a group of future stars. GENWI shows great promise therefore deserves to be on the short list. Now we are faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners."

"We are incredibly honored to have been selected as a finalist for the Red Herring 100 Americas award," said PJ Gurumohan, Co-Founder and CEO of GENWI.
