Howdy from the Aggie 100!
It’s an honor and a pleasure for PKF Texas to again serve as the “Official Accountants to the Aggie 100”. PKF Texas strongly supports the Mays School and its Center for New Ventures and Entrepreneurship here at Texas A&M.
A big Aggie thank you to Dick Lester, Ashley Crane, and Dean Strawser for your unwavering support of a unique one-of-a-kind program. We already know that every Aggie is already a winner. But the Aggie 100 stands for the school’s legacy as well as its future. So how did we get this year’s list of the Aggie 100?
Over 250 companies completed the application process this year. Additional information was sent to our offices in Houston, where we verified the financial information, and reviewed the data submitted by the applicants.
In some cases we spoke with some of applicants to gain additional insight about the business. It took about 6 weeks to review all the applications.
Once we had the data, we calculated the two year compound annual growth rate from 2009 to 2011. Then the individual companies were ranked by their compound annual growth rate to get the Aggie 100.
Check back at 1:30 PM CST on October 26th, for an update on the honorees!
