Paris, France – May 5, 2011

Summary: Qosmos named country representative in prestigious annual awards program, and is in the running for “The HSBC International Growth Strategy of the Year Award.”

The European Business Awards sponsored by HSBC (www.businessawardseurope.com) has announced that Qosmos is to represent France in the prestigious 2011 Awards program. Qosmos was selected among tough competition to be one of 25 Country Representatives and will now compete for a coveted Ruban d’Honneur in the next round of the contest. Final category Award winners will be unveiled in Barcelona on 22nd November 2011.

The European Business Awards has identified some of Europe’s brightest businesses based on their ability to demonstrate the three core principles at the heart of the Awards program: innovation, business excellence and sustainability.

“We are thrilled to represent France,” said Thibaut Bechetoille, CEO of Qosmos. “The European Business Awards is widely recognized as the showcase for Europe’s most dynamic companies, and it’s an honor to be recognized as one of the leading organizations in our country and in our field. This recognition highlights the phenomenal adoption of Network Intelligence technology in the marketplace. We’re looking forward to the next round, where we’ll be competing across Europe to receive a Ruban d’Honneur and hopefully win the category for International Growth Strategy.”

The European Business Awards is dedicated to raising the visibility and progress of companies who excel in delivering innovation twinned with successful commercial results whilst acting responsibly and positively affecting the social environment they operate in. The 2010 European Business Awards showcased 100 Ruban d’Honneur recipients with a combined turnover greater than €766 billion Euros (6% of EU GDP) who employ over 3.5 million people.

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said, “Over the past five years we’ve received an incredibly high standard of entries from organizations that are passionate about their business. However, very few get the chance to fly the flag for their country and compete across Europe to be recognized as one of the EU’s leading companies. It really is an exceptional accolade to be picked as a Country Representative, and together with HSBC we’re looking forward to seeing Qosmos in the next round.”

John Casey, HSBC Head of Commercial Banking Europe, commented: “The European Business Awards provide a perfect opportunity to recognize the best of European business and their successes over the past twelve months. These companies have displayed an impressive ability to thrive despite challenging economic conditions, pursuing growth and creating prosperity. Their recognition is highly deserved, and through the European Business Awards their success – and the stories behind that – can be shared across the wider business community. We look forward to celebrating alongside these inspirational businesses and wish them every success at the next stage of judging.”
