Amply Media Ranks 59th on Inc. Magazine’s List of America’s 5,000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies

The Annual Inc. 5000 List Ranked Amply Media Based on Their Three-Year Revenue Growth of Over 5,000 Percent

KANSAS CITY, Mo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#AmplyMedia--Inc. magazine has announced that Amply Media is number 59 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.


"We are very excited to be recognized as the 59th fastest-growing private company in America by Inc. Magazine,” said Amply Media CEO Ryan Schaar. "We love being able to provide interesting, valuable, and entertaining content to our millions of subscribers. The team we’ve assembled continues to amaze me each and every day. I'm proud that we’ve created a culture that gives our people the ability to thrive and add the kind value that has really supercharged our recent successes."

Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are also being featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 12.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”

This is the second time Amply Media has appeared on an Inc. 5000 series list this year. In March, the company ranked sixth on Inc. Magazine’s first-ever list of the Midwest’s Fastest Growing Companies from the states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

Methodology

The 2020 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2016 and 2019. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2016. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2019. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2016 is $100,000; the minimum for 2019 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.
