ZOLL Medical Corporation (Nasdaq GS: ZOLL), a manufacturer of resuscitation devices and related software solutions, announced today that Forbes magazine has ranked ZOLL #87 on its list of the top 100 small public businesses in America with annual revenue between $5 million and $1 billion.

In the Forbes article published in the November 7 issue, it was stated: “For many small businesses, this economic ‘recovery’ has felt more like a tension headache that won’t go away. Then there are the 100 impressive outfits on the Forbes annual ranking of America’s best small public companies.” ZOLL is one of only 11 companies in the healthcare industry to make the list.

"Our longstanding commitment to improving resuscitation outcomes is driving our business forward. Our unique portfolio, including the LifeVest® Wearable Defibrillator, the AutoPulse® automated CPR device, the only defibrillator line fully equipped with real-time CPR feedback, and our leadership in post-resuscitation care is helping clinicians save more lives every day,” said Richard A. Packer, Chief Executive Officer of ZOLL. We are pleased to be recognized for our performance and to receive this designation from Forbes.”

To qualify for the Forbes Top Small Companies list, candidates must have been publicly traded for at least a year, generate annual revenue between $5 million and $1 billion, and boast a stock price no lower than $5 a share. The rankings are based on earnings growth, sales growth and return on equity in the past 12 months and over five years.

ZOLL’s industry-leading technology also includes the AutoPulse, which delivers high-quality, automated chest compressions; the LifeVest Wearable Defibrillator, which saves a life every other day; and ZOLL IVTM™, an intravascular approach to temperature management for cooling or warming critical care patients.
