Ranked No. 204 on the 2011 Inc. 500 with Three-Year Revenue Growth of 1,531 Percent

LAS VEGAS, August 31, 2011 - Rimini Street, Inc., the leading third-party maintenance and support provider for enterprise software, including Oracle Corporation's (NASDAQ: ORCL) Siebel, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards and E-Business Suite software, and SAP AG (NYSE:SAP) software, today announced that it has been ranked number 204 on the 2011 Inc. 500, and 16th overall in the category of IT Services. The list, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies, was unveiled in the September, 2011 issue of Inc.

Companies are ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2007 to 2010. Rimini Street reported 2010 annual revenue of $25.3 million, a 1,531 percent growth from 2007, making it one of the fastest-growing IT services companies in the industry, and the only third-party support provider to make the list.

Rimini Street Focus on Ultra-Responsive Service and Client Value Drives Growth

As enterprise software licensees seek more responsive service and better value for their annual maintenance fees, Rimini Street has seen significant growth and has now signed more than 400 clients, including 39 of the Fortune 500 and 12 of the Global 100. The Company already supports client operations in more than 60 countries, with the capability of supporting clients in nearly 200 countries.

Rimini Street recently reported record results for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, including record quarterly revenues of $8 million, record sales bookings growth of 120 percent on a year-over-year basis, record sales bookings backlog of $264 million, and a record second quarter quarterly invoicing increase of 94 percent. The Company has nearly 200 employees in the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific regions.

"Since inception, Rimini Street's focus has been to help software licensees drive maximum value out of their enterprise software investments with an innovative service offering, up to 90 percent in total cost of maintenance savings, and the most responsive 24x7 service level commitment in the industry," said Seth Ravin, CEO, Rimini Street. "The Company's strong growth over the past several years is a direct result of an increasing number of Oracle and SAP licensees seeking a better annual support value and choosing to partner with Rimini Street to achieve their financial and service objectives."
