Multi-Color named to Fortune 100 small companies list

July 11, 2006

Multi-Color Corporation has been listed on the FSB 100, the 2006 presentation of the USA’s fastest-growing small public companies by Fortune magazine. Multi-Color is ranked 89th, with revenues of $197.2 million for calendar year 2005.

This year’s FSB 100 is the sixth time the list has been compiled, with the assistance of financial research firm Zacks. The list ranks public companies with revenues under $200 million and a stock price of more than $1, based on percentage growth in earnings, revenue and stock performance over the past three years.

Multi-Color’s financial performance includes a three-year annual revenue growth of 25.7 percent and earnings per share growth of 14.6 percent, giving investors an overall three-year annual return of 35.2 percent.

“Being selected for the FSB 100 is truly an exciting achievement for us,” says Frank Gerace, president and CEO of Multi-Color.  “It solidly reflects the hard work and commitment of all Multi-Color associates that have brought high value products and service to our customers — and high return to our shareholders in the process. We have recorded our eighth consecutive year of increased sales and operating income, and our second consecutive year of rewarding shareholders with a quarterly dividend.”

Multi-Color was similarly honored by Forbes Magazine in 2005, ranked 41st in its 200 Best Small Companies in America list.

Based in Cincinnati, OH, Multi-Color Corporation provides decorating solutions and packaging services to consumer product and food and beverage companies, national retailers and container manufacturers worldwide. It is one of the world’s largest producers of in-mold labels and heat transfer labels, and a major manufacturer of high-quality cut-and-stack and pressure sensitive labels and shrink sleeves. Multi-Color has nine manufacturing locations in the USA.
