What criteria does MarketLine use to select the companies that are included in the Company Profiles?

MarketLine assesses the most important global companies, ensuring a balance between the US, European and Asian companies as well as the key vertical markets. The selection process is based on a scoring system that takes into account the factors below. The points for each company are then added together, and then ranked by points score (descending order), then by annual revenues (descending order). This process ensures that MarketLine covers the world’s most important companies as well as those of most interest to investors and key customers.
