Windstream ranks among the world’s 2000 biggest public companies

 

Forbes Global 2000 includes companies from 66 countries

Thursday, April 26, 2012

Windstream appears on the Forbes magazine’s listing of the world’s 2,000 biggest public companies, coming in at No. 1593.

Exxon Mobil took the number one spot in the Forbes Global 2000 for the first time. AT&T is the highest-ranked U.S.-based telecom.

Windstream’s listing reflects its expanded scale following last year’s acquisition of PAETEC.

According to the magazine, Forbes’ annual ranking of the world’s biggest companies uses an equal weighting of sales, profits, assets and market value to rank companies according to size. This year’s rankings span 66 countries.

In total, the magazine says, the Global 2000 companies account for $36 trillion in revenues (up 12 percent), $2.64 trillion in profits (up 11 percent), $149 trillion in assets (up 8 percent) and $37 trillion in market value (down 0.5 percent).  And they employ 83 million people worldwide.
