WESTON, Fla.--Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people management solutions, announced today it has been ranked #8 on Forbes magazine’s 2014 list of the “Most Innovative Growth Companies.” Companies are ranked by their innovation premium: the difference between their market capitalization and a net present value of cash flows from current businesses.

Other companies named on the list include NetSuite, Concur Technologies, Kate Spade & Co, and Choice Hotels.

We work hard to deliver innovation at every level of our company. It’s a part of our DNA,” said Scott Scherr, president, founder and CEO at Ultimate Software. “We are very proud to have ranked so highly on this important list of innovative growth companies, and this recognition validates our commitment to research and development alongside our consistent business results.”

Ultimate also extends congratulations to our customers that made the 2014 list of the Most Innovative Growth Companies, including 3D Systems, Seattle Genetics, Mednax, and Solera Holdings.

The list was compiled using Forbes' Innovation Premium, a calculation that first projects a company's income (cash flows, in this case) from existing businesses, plus anticipated growth from those businesses, and then looks at the net present value (NPV) of those cash flows. The NPV of cash flows from existing businesses is compared with a current market capitalization. Companies with a current market cap above the NPV of cash flows have an innovation premium built into their stock.
