Just 1 Mortgage Firm Ranks Among Best Small Companies

Publicly traded companies ranked for growth

Nov. 22, 2013

By Mortgage Daily staff

Only one company in the mortgage industry made a prestigious list of the best small publicly traded firms in the nation.

Among all industries, the title of America's best small company was awarded to Questcor Pharmaceuticals. Market capitalization at the biopharmaceutical firm was $3.45 billion as of last month.

Sales at the Anaheim Hills, Calif.-based company are $621 million on sales growth of 51 percent. Return on equity was 56 percent, and earnings per share growth was 41 percent.

The ranking was determined by Forbes.

Only publicly traded companies with annual revenues of between $5 million and $1 billion and a minimum share price of $5 were considered. Financial institutions, real estate investment trusts, utilities and limited partnerships were excluded from the list, as were companies with accounting issues and firms with thinly traded shares.

A total of a 100 companies made the list.

Forbes based its rankings on earnings growth, sales growth and return on equity in the past 12 months and over five years.

The only mortgage-related company to make the cut was 16-year-old Ellie Mae Inc., which came in at No. 34 on the overall list.

The Pleasanton, Calif.-based company, which has a staff of 308 employees, had a market capitalization of $841 million as of last month.

It's initial public offering completed in April 2011.

Ellie's annual sales are $122 million, and it earned an 8 percent return on equity for its shareholders. Sales growth was 20 percent, and earnings per share growth was 89 percent.

"At Ellie Mae, our focus has always been on providing our clients with innovative technology and superior customer service, and we have been rewarded with high levels of adoption and market share growth," Ellie Mae President and Chief Operating Officer Jonathan Corr said in a statement. "We are pleased to be recognized for our efforts on Forbes' list alongside other high-performing companies."

Ellie is a Mortgage Daily advertiser.

In a separate announcement Friday, Ellie said it was ranked No. 376 on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 list. The ranking reflected 203 percent in revenue growth from 2008 to 2012.

Deloitte reportedly describes the Technology Fast 500 as large, small, public and private companies that "are on the cutting edge and are transforming the way we do business."

Other mortgage-related companies to make the Deloitte ranking were No. 133 Zillow and No. 422 Bankrate Inc.
