With three-year sales growth of 373%, Coast to Coast Tickets has been recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) November 8, 2005 -- Coast to Coast Tickets, the leading online ticket reseller, commented today on its debut on the Inc. 500 list of America's fastest growing private companies. Coast to Coast Tickets grew by 373% over three years to earn this distinction. The list, generated by Inc. magazine, is determined using stringent accounting criteria and interviews with company management.
"The growth of Coast to Coast Tickets is a direct result of the daily efforts of our people to provide great experiences to our customers", said Coast to Coast Tickets CEO Jason Randall. "We understand that our customers come to us seeking access to something special–a great seat for the big game, a presence at a once-in-a-lifetime concert, an unforgettable experience for a valued business client.

We have been rewarded by the marketplace with an exceptional growth rate. And we're honored to be formally recognized this year by the prestigious Inc. 500 list."
The companies that made the Inc. 500 list represent the emerging stars of American business. "With unprecedented global competition, companies have to be able to turn on a dime and discover innovative new ways of doing business" said Jim Melloan, project manager for the Inc. 500. "Increasingly, it's the smaller, agile companies like those on the Inc. 500 that are best equipped to meet these challenges."
To be eligible for this year's Inc. 500, companies had to be U.S.-based, independent and privately held through their fiscal year 2004, and have had at least $500,000 in net sales in the base year of 2001. In addition, their 2004 sales had to exceed 2003 sales. Companies are ranked on cumulative three-year sales growth from 2001 to 2004. Inc. verifies all information using tax forms and audited financial statements from certified public accountants and by conducting interviews with company officials.
