|Perficient is a rapidly growing information technology consulting firm serving Global 2000 and other large enterprise customers throughout the United States. We help our clients gain competitive advantage by using Internet-based technologies to make their businesses more responsive to market opportunities and threats, strengthen relationships with customers, suppliers and partners, improve productivity and reduce information technology costs. Our solutions enable our clients to operate a real-time enterprise that dynamically adapts business processes and the systems that support them to the changing demands of an increasingly global, Internet-driven and competitive marketplace.
Since our founding in 1998, we have grown from startup to an industry leader with technology and business consulting professionals serving clients from a network of offices across North America, global delivery centers in Europe, India and China. Perficient is publicly traded on the NASDAQ National Global Select Market under the symbol PRFT and is a member of both the Russell 2000 and S&P SmallCap 600 Indices.
We are expanding our business through a combination of organic growth and acquisitions. We believe that information technology consulting is a fragmented industry and that there are a substantial number of privately held information technology consulting firms in the United States that can be acquired on financially accretive terms. We have a track record of successfully identifying, executing and integrating acquisitions that add strategic value to our business.
