In the last six months, Pentalog has received a great deal of invitations to participate in numerous competitions and rankings in France, as well as outside our borders. This is the sign of a certain recognition of our business model, of our performances and our positioning. Through these requests, it is our brand awareness and our capacity for innovation that are emphasized. Here is a brief retrospective of the last few months during which we have prepared application files, answered strategic and technological questionnaires:- Entrepreneur of the Year Award: in April 2010, Frédéric Lasnier was personally nominated for the Top 100 – Entrepreneur of the Year Award, organized by L’Entreprise magazine, Ernst & Young and the French newspaper les Echos. The regional jury will meet in July and Frédéric will be at the Garnier Opera next September or the awarding of the national prizes.- Business Strategy Award: in May 2010, Pentalog was a finalist of the 4th edition of the Business Strategy Award under the sponsorship of the French Ministry of the Economy, Industry and Employment. Among the 137 candidate companies, Pentalog has qualified to the national final for the award of prizes. We thank the ESSEC students who are accompanying us. Pentalog will be at Bercy on June 9th for the awards ceremony.- Deloitte Technology Fast 500: in November 2009, Pentalog was a laureate of the 2009 European Deloitte Technoloy Fast 500. This is the first time that Pentalog enters this prestigious ranking which is made up of the 500 technological companies of the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa) with the highest increase in sales figures over the last five fiscal years, from 2004 to 2008. Pentalog had a 391% rate of growth during this period. In 2008, Pentalog had obtained the “Coup de Coeur” special prize of Deloitte Technology Fast 50 for the Western part of France. We are going to compete again this year for Fast 50 and Fast 500.- Innovation Trophies: November 2009, 5th edition of Innovation Trophies organized by Syntec informatique and Orange Business Services.

Seven thousand companies are assessed for this selection, from large multinational companies to growing small and medium-sized enterprises.Of course, we will communicate the results as soon as they are announced. Finally, one should also keep in mind that Pentalog has been a member of the IE Club beginning with 2010. Frédéric Lasnier has also accompanied the French Prime Minister François Fillon to Vietnam last November together with a large delegation of French business owners.In short, Pentalog has put technological, financial and social innovation at the heart of its practices and today, this profitable strategy receives the recognition of the high business spheres; we are delighted.
