Burlington, MA – December 14, 2011 – Emptoris, Inc. (“Emptoris”), a leading provider of strategic supply and enterprise contract management solutions, announced today it has been named a Red Herring Global 100 Award Winner.

“Choosing the best out of the previous two years was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, Chairman of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed down our list from 1,100 potential companies to 100 winners. It was an extremely difficult process. Emptoris should be extremely proud of its achievement, as the competition for the Top 100 was fierce. The Top Global 100 are truly the best of the best.”

The Red Herring editorial team selected the companies demonstrating the most innovative technologies and business models originating from over 1000 companies from over 40 nations. These companies, representing past Red Herring Asia, Europe and North America awards, are judged on a range of qualitative and quantitative metrics, including but not limited to, technology innovation, financial performance, growth criterion, management’s execution standards, potential globalization of the strategy and market share improvement.
