Capstone Turbine Named a Deloitte 2014 Technology Fast 500 Winner as One of North America's Fastest Growing Companies

CHATSWORTH, Calif., Nov. 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Turbine Corporation ( (Nasdaq:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, today announced the company's inclusion on Deloitte's Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America.

Capstone made the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ list again this year, coming in with an impressive 190% fiscal year revenue growth from 2009 to 2013.

Capstone's President and Chief Executive Officer, Darren Jamison, credits the U.S. shale gas boom, emergent flare gas market and general trend of businesses worldwide becoming more determined on reducing energy costs with fueling the company's impressive 190% revenue growth from 2009 to 2013. "Capstone is honored to be one of the fourteen clean tech companies to make this year's list. This is the fourth consecutive year Capstone has been a Technology Fast 500 winner, and overall it's our ninth Technology Fast 500 award since 2001," said Jamison.

"We're excited for this list every year because it's such a great microcosm of the technology landscape in general," said Eric Openshaw, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology leader for Deloitte's technology, media and entertainment and telecommunications industry practice in the Americas. "Some sectors – like software and Internet – have shown consistent growth over recent years. On the other hand, there are always a few surprises – previously under-represented sectors like clean technology have made considerable progress, while biotechnology continues to make up a large part of the list, which is in line with how strong this industry has been over the last year. Congratulations to all on the list on their continued excellence."
