Virtusa Corporation (NASDAQ: VRTU), a global IT services company that offers a broad range of information technology services, including IT consulting, technology implementation and application outsourcing, today announced that it has been named to the Boston Globe’s Globe 100 List, a prestigious ranking of the best-performing publicly-traded corporations in Massachusetts.

This is the first year since 2009 that a full 100 companies qualified for the prestigious listing, up from only 82 companies in 2010, illustrating the resurgence of the Massachusetts economy. Virtusa was ranked 42 and honored as a company helping to drive this resurgence.

“The positive momentum we are seeing in the economic recovery is illustrated by the Globe 100 returning to full strength,” said Shirley Leung, Boston Globe business editor. “It’s a powerful testament to the resiliency of Massachusetts’ businesses.”

The 2012 Globe 100 honors companies that delivered exceptional financial results during 2011. This year’s list is unique in that it represents those Massachusetts companies that have weathered the global recession and are now are driving rejuvenation of the economy.

It is an honor to be ranked in the Globe 100 and play a role in the resurgence of the Massachusetts economy.”

About the Globe 100 ranking methodology

The Globe 100 ranks Massachusetts-based public companies based on financial data from the four quarters ending December 31, 2011. To be eligible, the company must be traded publicly for the entire 2011 calendar year on the New York Stock Exchange, the Nasdaq or the American Stock Exchange and report revenue and profit for both 2010 and 2011. Companies are ranked on four criteria: return on average equity, one-year percentage change in revenue, one-year percentage change in profit margin and 2011 revenue.
