LOS ANGELES, Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Technology industry research firm Lead411 has ranked BlackLine Systems No. 67 on its annual list of the fastest-growing, private technology companies in the United States.  The enterprise-class financial software company has made the Lead411 list for the past four years in a row, demonstrating the company's consistent rapid growth to meet the ever-increasing demand for its flagship account reconciliation and financial close software.


The 2013 Lead411 Technology 200 is based on percentage fiscal-year revenue growth over the two-year period from 2010 to 2012.  In that timeframe, BlackLine grew more than 142 percent under the direction of CEO and Founder Therese Tucker.

BlackLine revenues have increased more than 50 percent annually for the past six years and are on track to grow by at least that pace in 2013, with revenues up more than 55 percent in the first half of 2013 compared to the same period last year.  The company has seen substantial revenue increases since moving to a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) business model in 2008.

Accounting/Finance managers and Compliance executives around the world use BlackLine to automate traditionally manual, labor-intensive and spreadsheet-driven account reconciliation and financial close processes.   BlackLine continues to add clients at an aggressive pace with a long list of global companies already on board including Aflac, AT&T, Boeing, Eurostar International, Lafarge SA and Northrop Grumman.

In 2011, BlackLine was named a Red Herring 100 Global Winner – recognizing the company as one of the 'most innovative and promising' tech ventures in the world.   BlackLine also has made the Software 500 list for the past three years and the prestigious Inc. 500/5000 for the past six years in a row, joining the ranks of such companies as Jamba Juice, Microsoft and Patagonia.
