La Jolla, CA, USA – JANUARY 6, 2009 – MadCap Software, the leader in multi-channel content authoring and a showcase company for Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Visual Studio 2005 and Microsoft XPS, today announced that it has been selected as a finalist of the Red Herring 100 Global Award.

Red Herring 100 winners and finalists from North America, Europe and Asia of the last three years are eligible for this coveted award. The Red Herring editorial team deploys a detailed process to whittle down a pool of 600 eligible, promising companies to the 200 finalists of this global award. Evaluations are made on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, innovation, management, global strategy, and ecosystem integration. The finalists, elite executives and venture capital leaders will celebrate the Top 100 Privately Held Companies from around the world in San Diego from January 14-16, 2009.

“This year's exceptional finalists highlight the remarkable depth and breadth of technology innovation taking place around the world,” said Red Herring Editor-in-Chief Joel Dreyfuss. “The impressive accomplishments of these startups are a testament to the importance of technology in driving the global economy.”
