Materion Named One of Fortune's 100 Fastest-Growing Companies

MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Materion Corporation (NYSE: MTRN) announced that Fortune has ranked the Company No. 59 on the magazine's 2012 list of the 100 Fastest-Growing Companies. The full list and related stories appear in the September 24, 2012 issue of Fortune and online now at:

"We are honored to receive this recognition from Fortune for our record of growth, profitability and return to shareholders," said Richard J. Hipple, Materion Chairman, President and CEO. "Over the past decade, we have repositioned the Company to achieve faster and more sustainable growth and profitability. The Company's performance over the period measured by this list demonstrates the success of the transformation."

To qualify for the Fortune list, a company - domestic or foreign - must be trading on a major U.S. stock exchange; report data in U.S. dollars; file quarterly reports with the SEC; have a minimum market capitalization of $250 million and a stock price of at least $5 on June 29, 2012, and have been trading continuously since June 30, 2009. Companies must have revenue and net income of at least $50 million and $10 million, respectively, for the four quarters ended on or before April 30, 2012, and they must have posted an annualized growth in revenue and earnings per share of at least 20% annually over the three years ended on or before April 30, 2012.

Companies that meet these criteria are ranked by revenue growth rate, EPS growth rate, and three-year annualized total return for the period ended June 29, 2012. The overall rank is based on the sum of the three ranks. Once the 100 companies are identified, they are then re-ranked within the 100, using the three equally weighted variables.
