Winners are chosen in two categories, one for companies with over 50 employees and another one for companies with less than 50 employees. iText was nominated in the latter category on account of its enduring and ongoing success in global markets, most notably the United States, India and East Asia. To mark the importance of its markets abroad, iText chose to launch its new PDF engine iText 7 at the Great Indian Developer Summit this month. 2016 marks the 15th anniversary of the Export Lion.
