Award recognizes 100 private companies in Asia that drive the technology industry's future

Belmont, August 20, 2005 - Red Herring magazine today announced that BigWorld has been named one of the Red Herring 100 Private Companies of Asia.

"Getting selected for the Red Herring Asia 100 list is quite an achievement," said Red Herring editor-in-chief Joel Dreyfuss. "We had many strong entries, a reflection of the depth of entrepreneurship that has taken hold in Asia."

"We are very pleased that BigWorld has been recognized in this way," said John DeMargheriti, CEO of BigWorld. "Our focus on long-term research and development has paved the way to our current and future success in the fast-growing online game marketplace."

Red Herring's lists of private companies are an important part of the magazine's tradition of identifying new and innovative technology companies and entrepreneurs. Companies like Google and eBay were spotted in their early days by Red Herring editors as those that would change the way we live and work.

Red Herring's editorial staff rigorously evaluated more than 500 private companies through a careful analysis of financial data and subjective criteria, including quality of management, execution of strategy, and dedication to research and development. Red Herring 100 Asia companies will be presenting their business model and strategy at the Red Herring 100 Asia Conference. The conference will take place Sept. 5-7 at the Shangri-La Hotel in Shanghai.
