Panels and software firm Toluna has been named the fastest growing company in France by the publication 'L'Entreprise'. The company saw turnover growth of 970% in the period 2004-2007, and since floating on AIM in May 2005 has more than tripled in value from £25m to £84m.
The firm's share price on floating was 70p - it now stands at 230p.
L'Entreprise works with Ernst & Young and Coface to produce the annual report, which this year looked at the financial performance of 7,000 French companies. Toluna was also ranked the nation's '15th best company'.
CEO Frederic-Charles Petit comments: 'Our team has worked tirelessly to deliver our vision of turning market research into an Internet industry. I am proud of what we have achieved but know that it is just one step on our path to fulfil our mission in this market.'
