    NEW YORK, Oct. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- LinkShare Corporation, a leader in performance-based marketing, has been named to Deloitte & Touche's prestigious "2002 Technology Fast 50" program for the New York City, Westchester and Rockland Counties region. LinkShare's first place ranking, based on the Company's 32,185% revenue growth from 1997 to 2001, was announced at an awards dinner last night, Thursday, October 10, 2002, at the Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park. LinkShare leads an esteemed group of companies on this year's list that span various industries, from telecommunications and semiconductors to biotech and pharmaceutical.

    "In an era where technology companies come and go, making the Deloitte & Touche Fast 50 is a testament to a company's vision that produces growth over a five-year period," Larry Wizel, managing partner of the New York Technology Fast 50 program said. "LinkShare has proven that its leadership has the right stuff for growth, and we at Deloitte & Touche salute the Company's accomplishments."

    LinkShare provides an online marketplace where businesses can build pay-for-performance relationships that minimize customer acquisition costs, and maximize the revenue-generating potential of their websites. By participating in LinkShare's affiliate marketing networks, online businesses desiring additional sales, registrations, leads, or other activity are able to forge alliances with hundreds of thousands of affiliate sales partners seeking to monetize their traffic. The 32,185% growth and resulting ranking are evidence of how LinkShare's business solutions have successfully delivered value to its customers, even in a challenging market environment.

    LinkShare's Chairman and CEO, Stephen Messer, credits vision, discipline, passion, and a company-wide entrepreneurial spirit for the impressive revenue growth. LinkShare pioneered the affiliate marketing industry with its patented tracking technology, launching the industry's first affiliate marketing network. "We have always adhered to a guiding philosophy of maximizing resources to build a company that can stand on its own. Our tremendous revenue growth is further distinguished by the fact that we were the first company in our space to become profitable, and we have sustained that profitability for over a year already," stated Messer. "We are especially proud that our performance-based business model enables our success to translate into the success of our clients' affiliate marketing programs."

    To qualify for the Fast 50, companies must have had operating revenues of at least $50,000 in 1997 and $1,000,000 in 2001, must be public or private companies headquartered North America, and be "technology companies" defined as companies that own proprietary technology which contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues or devotes a high percentage of effort to research and development of technology.
