Howdy from the Aggie 100!
It’s an honor and a pleasure for PKF Texas to again serve as the Aggie 100 accountants. PKF Texas strongly supports the Mays School and its Center for New Ventures and Entrepreneurship here at Texas A&M.
A big Aggie thank you to Richard Scruggs, Lenae Huebner, Dean Strawser and Dr. Elsa Murano for your unwavering support of a unique one-of-a-kind program at a “Unique American Institution.” We already know that every Aggie is already a winner. But the Aggie 100 stands for the school’s legacy as well as its future. So how did we get this year’s list of the Aggie 100?
Over 175 companies completed the application process this year. Additional information was sent to our offices in Houston, where we verified the financial information, and reviewed the data submitted by the applicants.
In some cases we spoke with some of applicants to gain additional insight about the business. It took about 6 weeks to review all the applications.
Once we had the data, we calculated the two year compound annual growth rate from 2005 to 2007. Then the individual companies were ranked by their compound annual growth rate to get the Aggie 100. For those or you who won’t be able to attend the Aggie 100 Awards Ceremony on Friday October 31, we have another way for you to participate. KBTX television in College Station will be filming the event and streaming it live on their website www.KBTX.com . The coverage will begin around 11:15 a.m. (Central Time) and will last until all the honorees have been announced (around 1:00 p.m.).
Check back at 1:00 PM CST on October 31, 2008 for an update on the winners!
