Red Herring Reveals Companies Selected for the 2006 Red Herring 100 Europe; Award Recognizes the 100 ''Most Promising'' Firms Driving the Future of Technology


PARIS --(Business Wire)-- May 9, 2006 -- Red Herring today announced that B3G Telecom, the leading European Broadband Telephony operator is a recipient of Red Herring 100 Europe, a selection of the 100 private companies based in the EMEA region that play a leading role in innovation and technology.



"Market obstacles remain but our list shows that great companies are being created in Europe," said Red Herring editor-in-chief Joel Dreyfuss.

Red Herring's lists of top private companies are an important part of the magazine's tradition of identifying new and innovative technology companies and entrepreneurs. Companies like Google, eBay and Skype 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 700 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.

European leader in Broadband Telephony, B3G Telecom, which completed a 16 million Euro fund raising at the beginning of the year to accelerate its development in its two markets - enterprises and operators, in France and in Europe - is pleased to be recognized for the three years in developing its IP Centrex platform, and in designing and deploying its private, secured and end-to-end operated IP network.
