LONDON, May 24, 2010 - Showcasing unparalleled ideas and innovation across a wide variety of

Emirates Stadium last Tuesday.

Shining a spotlight on formidable organisations which, despite the weak
economy, have emerged as potent forces in their respective sectors, the
evening celebrated the positive impact which these companies' unique and
innovative solutions and services are making across a diverse range of
markets, including healthcare, chemicals, transportation, defence and energy.

The banquet marked the culmination of the first day of Frost & Sullivan's
annual GIL (Growth, Innovation & Leadership) Congress, GIL 2010: Europe,
which is largely focused around leveraging innovation as a resource to help
shape a better future of our companies and our careers, improving planet

"During these past months we have seen extraordinary companies and
leaders achieving great success despite the economic challenges across all
market sectors in our coverage," said Frost & Sullivan Partner Dorman
. "We believe their stories must be told as best practices to
inspire other companies to accelerate their own growth in 2010."

Aptly set against the backdrop of Arsenal's Stadium, Frost & Sullivan
Chairman David Frigstad set the scene by comparing current economic markets
to modern Olympic Games, as both are becoming more fiercely competitive, more
demanding and ever-faster paced.

Frost & Sullivan's prestigious accolades were presented to recipients
representing a range of industries including Information & Communication
Technologies, Automation & Electronics, Chemicals, Materials & Food,
Automotive & Transportation, Energy and Aerospace & Defence.
