Advanced Circuits Named One of Colorado’s Fastest Growing Technology Companies in Deloitte’s Colorado Technology Fast 50 Program for Ninth Consecutive Year

MARCH 5TH, 2008 – AURORA, CO. – Advanced Circuits, the country's leading source for quickturn printed circuit boards, today announced that the company has been recognized for the ninth consecutive time as one of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Colorado. Advanced Circuits is one of only six companies who have achieved this prominent recognition. Significantly, Advanced Circuits was ranked 27th among Colorado technology companies honored in 2007.

Fueling this rapid growth is Advanced Circuits' commitment to continuous innovation and new services.  The most recent of these has been the introduction of PCB Artist, a free PCB layout software.  Launched in mid-2007, with more than 25,000 downloads, PCB Artist has quickly become a favorite among engineers and has contributed to sales growth.  PCB Artist has received a 5-star rating by users on download.com and has become the top download in its class since being listed. Due to its functionality and reliability, several universities have incorporated PCB Artist into their engineering curriculums. Engineers using the program have found the software to be intuitive, easier to use and more capability-rich than similar software products.  Unlike most competitive products, Gerber formatted files are available at no charge to users after order placement.

"The success of Advanced Circuits relies heavily on customer satisfaction, and we owe much of our continued business success to providing effective tools for daily use," says John Yacoub, president and CEO of Advanced Circuits. "The success of PCB Artist coupled with our flagship products and services has continued to be well-received by our customers. We're a partner in our customers' success and taking care of the customer remains our highest priority."

To qualify for the Technology Fast 50, Advanced Circuits had operating revenues of at least $50,000 in 2002 and $5,000,000 in 2006 and owns proprietary technology or proprietary intellectual property that contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues, or devotes a significant proportion of revenues to the research and development of technology.
