CORRECTION - Cosentry

OMAHA, NE -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- In the news release issued earlier today by Cosentry, we are advised by the company that the headline should read "Cosentry Makes Inc. Magazine's 33rd Annual List of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies for an Eighth Consecutive Year" rather than "Cosentry Makes Inc. Magazine's 33rd Annual List of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies for Sixth Consecutive Year" as originally issued. The same edit has been made in the first paragraph. Complete corrected text follows.

Cosentry Makes Inc. Magazine's 33rd Annual List of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies for an Eighth Consecutive Year

OMAHA, NE -- August 21, 2014 -- Inc. magazine today ranked Cosentry, the leading Midwest provider of Data Center Services, to its 500|5000 list of the nation's fastest growing privately held companies for an eighth year in a row.

The Inc. 500|5000 list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy -- America's independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino's Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.

Cosentry continues to grow and capture market share within the Midwest. Recently, the company announced growing close to 20 percent through first half of 2014, and they acquired XIOLINK to expand into St. Louis and integrate the company's managed services capabilities into Cosentry's award-winning portfolio. Cosentry now operates in four Midwest markets with eight data centers, including Kansas City, St. Louis, Omaha and Sioux Falls.

"We are proud that Inc. magazine continues to rank Cosentry among the fastest-growing private companies," said Brad Hokamp, CEO, Cosentry. "This prestigious list validates the strong adoption of our award-winning cloud and hosting products, data center capabilities, and comprehensive set of managed services."

The 2014 Inc. 500, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. is the most competitive crop in the list's history. To make the cut, companies had to have achieved a staggering minimum of 942.6 percent in sales growth. The Inc. 500' s aggregate revenue is $15.2 billion, with a median three-year growth of 1,828 percent, generating 23,000 jobs over the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 500|5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

"What surprises me, even though I know it's coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved," says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn't change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship."

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 15 through 17, 2014 in Phoenix. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as Michael Dell, Martha Stewart, host of the CNBC show "The Profit" Marcus Lemonis, Container Store Founder and CEO Kip Tindell, and Chobani Founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya.

Methodology
The 2014 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2010 to 2013. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2010. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent -- not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies -- as of December 31, 2013. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2010 is $100,000; the minimum for 2013 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.'s September issue.
