* INC. estimate.

A. 16% or more; B. 11% to 15%; C.6% to 10%; D. 1% to 5%; E. Breakeven; F. Loss.

HOW THE INC. 500 WERE SELECTED

The 1984 INC. 500 is the third annual ranking of the 500 fastest-growing privately held smaller businesses in the United States. To be included on the list, each company had to meet the following qualifications:

1. The company is an independent, privately held corporation, proprietorship, or partnership.

2. The company shows a sales history of at least five years. Companies founded after 1979 were excluded.

3. Sales in 1979 were at least $100,000 but less than $25 million.

4. The company's 1983 sales exceeded its 1982 sales. Companies showing growth in the five-year period, but a sales decline in 1983, were excluded.

While the criteria were relatively simple, the task of identifying the 500 finalists was complex, both because of the numbers of companies involved and because the project depended on information that is generally regarded as confidential.

INC. estimates that the total universe of potential candidates exceeds 500,000 companies. The research relied on two primary sources: INC. readers and in-house records. In addition, business groups, trade associations, and professional service firms were alerted to the search for high-growth companies by letter, advertisements, and personal contact.

Advertisement and business reply cards inserted in the April, May, and June issues invited readers to nominate candidates for the INC, 500. Drawing on the publication's national circulation of more than 550,000, the cards generated over 5,000 entries from April 1 to July 31.

INC.'s in-house database was screened to produce an additional 2,000 candidates, and another 1,500 names were added from directories and editorial files.

At the beginning of May, data forms were sent to 8,500 company executives. About 2,000 responses were received by the deadline of August 15. From those responses, more than 700 smaller, privately owned companies whose sales had at least quadrupled in the past five years were identified and ranked by percentage gain in sales.

Information on these companies as well as companies from last year's list was then verified through signed statements from company officers, support material from outside professionals, and telephone interviews with executives of each company.The published information is the only material that INC. will make available.

The list of INC. 500 companies was compiled by senior research editor Elyse Friedman, researcher/reporter Donna Fenn, and interviewers William Kilbourne III, Lucinda Sholley, Bradford W. Ketchum III, and H. David Richards.
