    The Branham300 is the most comprehensive listing of the top publicly
traded and privately held organizations operating in the Canadian
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry.

    "With the lingering effects of the economic downturn all but gone in
2011, the Canadian ICT industry generated impressive growth over the past
year in order to set a new Branham300 revenue record," said Wayne
Gudbranson, President and CEO of Branham Group. "Canada's largest tech
players as well as companies within the SMB segment closed strong fiscal
2011 campaigns, an indication that companies of all sizes experienced the
market rebound. Looking forward, Branham expects the industry to build on
its 2011 performance and post strong single-digit growth in 2012."

    Founded in 2010 by business intelligence experts, including former
Business Objects CEO, John Schwarz, the leadership team has a proven
track record of technical, operational and strategic management success
with companies including Business Objects, Crystal Decisions, SAP, IBM
and Symantec. Visier was founded on the notion that traditional analytic
approaches are too costly, and prone to failure. Visier pioneered a new

their business strategy.

    "2011 was a breakout year for Visier and to be named to Canada's Top 25
Up & Comers list is a testament to all the hard work and innovative
thinking of the entire Visier team, as well it also validates our place
in the market," said John Schwarz, Founder and CEO of Visier, adding, "we
are very proud to be recognized, amongst the best of the best in Canadian
information technology."

    The Branham300 2012 results are also published on the Branham300 website,
as well as in the April/May edition of Backbone Magazine, circulated in
