A pair of local technology companies — Sterling-based Neustar and DC-based Liquidity Services — have made Forbes‘ newly released list of the “100 Best Small Companies in America.” The list included companies that have been publicly traded for at least a year, generate annual revenue between $5 million-$1 billion and boast a stock price no lower than $5 a share. Rankings were based on earnings growth, sales growth and return on equity, both over the past 12 months and past five years. Neustar came in at No. 58, and Liquidity Services No. 80.
