K-Tron International Again Named to FSB 100 List of America's Fastest-Growing Small Public Companies

June 27, 2006

Posted by Don Dunnington at June 27, 2006 05:28 PM

For the second year running, K-Tron has been listed among America's fastest-growing small public companies by Fortune Small Business (FSB) Magazine.

This is the sixth annual ranking of the nation's top 100 small public companies as measured by earnings per share growth, revenue growth and total return to investors. The companies are screened by Zacks, a financial research firm, and the list includes companies with annual revenue of less than $200 million and a stock price of more than $1.00. They are ranked based on the past three years' earnings per share growth, revenue growth and stock performance. The FSB 100 excludes banks and real estate firms. 

K-Tron was ranked No. 77 on the 2006 list and No. 69 on the 2005 list. In a related article, "Growth guru," K-Tron CEO Ed Cloues was featured for his role in guiding K-Tron and two other companies into the FSB 100 ranks. Fortune cites Ed’s “gift for acquisitions” as one of the factors that makes his “the name that shareholders love to see.”

To my mind, there are two characteristics--patience and humility--that distinguish Ed’s leadership style, that make him the miracle worker of Fortune’s article. He is very patient. He is willing to wait for the right opportunity, and he’s willing to walk away when things don’t work out as expected. And he’s a genuine guy, humble in a way that allows him to see the hidden value, in people and companies.

Finding our value, I think, is the secret to real growth. It’s true for people as well as for our companies: when we focus on growing our value, all the other good things follow.
