Edgewater Named to 2008 Boston Globe 100

Recognized as One of the Top Massachusetts-Based Public Companies for Achieving Double-Digit Revenue Growth in 2007

WAKEFIELD, Mass., May 21, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- A technology management consulting firm specializing in providing premium IT services, Edgewater Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:EDGW) ("Edgewater" or the "Company"), announced earlier today that The Boston Globe has named Edgewater to the "Globe 100" list of top performing public companies in Massachusetts.

Based on a composite score derived from financial data for the four quarters ending December 31, 2007, Edgewater was ranked 58th among 100 Massachusetts-based companies whose stock is publicly traded on NASDAQ, New York Stock Exchange or American Stock Exchange.

"These companies represent the resiliency of Massachusetts business, surviving recessions, merger manias, and dramatic shifts in their industries," said Shirley Leung, business editor of the Boston Globe.

To qualify for the Globe 100, a company must have been public for the entire 2007 calendar year and have reported a positive net income for both 2006 and 2007.

"We are honored to be recognized within the Globe 100 again for outstanding performance," said Shirley Singleton, Chairman, President and CEO of Edgewater Technology. "Our success can be attributed to the loyalty of our customers and, most importantly, the dedication of our employees."

The Globe 100, celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2008, ranks Massachusetts-based public companies based on financial data from the four quarters ending closest to December 31, 2007, and for corresponding quarters a year earlier.
