The Sunday Times Microsoft Tech Track 100 annual league:
Now in its sixth year, The Sunday Times Microsoft Tech Track 100 annual league table is compiled by Oxford-based research and events company Fast Track - www.fasttrack.co.uk.

In addition to title sponsor Microsoft, the league table is co-sponsored by
PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP.

League table criteria:
Companies are ranked according to their annual growth rate in sales between 2003 and 2005. Companies had to be unquoted, independent and registered in Britain. The league table adopts the London Stock Exchange’s techMARK definition of what constitutes a technology company. Companies primarily engaged in simply reselling or reassembly were excluded, as were IT consultants that do not develop proprietary technology.
Companies also had to forecast an increase in sales from 2005 to 2006, but were not required to be in profit.

The research was carried out by Fast Track between April and August. All companies were interviewed by telephone and the majority (81) have also been visited by the Fast Track research team.
