Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies for 2008 (full list)

Toronto, February 2, 2009 – The winners of the 2008 Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies Award continue to raise the bar for Canadian business. This year’s winners generated $6.4 billion in combined revenue, had an average revenue increase of 43% (2006-2009) and employ
over 28,000 in Canada. The 50 Best Managed companies, in eight provinces and across a significant number of industries, have shown the ability to maintain sustainable growth amid volatile economic conditions.

“These companies are successful today because of their commitment to strong planning,
understanding the market and adapting to their customers’ needs,” says John Hughes, Deloitte
partner, private company services, and national leader of Canada’s 50 Best Managed
Companies Program. “Even two years ago, these companies were building contingency plans in
the event of economic softness.”

Canadian entrepreneurs have been successful in competing globally and overcoming many
diverse market challenges by being adaptable.

“The ability of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies to meet the challenges of a competitive
market is a direct reflection of their pursuit of innovation, and their investment in meeting the
needs of their clients” said Rick Lunny, Executive Vice-President, CIBC Retail Markets.
