Philippines' Largest Company 2012
The companies are incorporated in the Philippines and are publicly-listed in the Philippine Stock Exchange. They are ranked by market capitalization (or simply market cap) – the greater the stock market value of a company, the higher its ranking. Market capitalization is the total value of the tradable shares of a publicly traded company. The formula of market cap is: share price multiplied by the number of shares outstanding.
The table of 50 largest Philippine companies below shows for each company: the rank in 2012, main industry/sector, and the market capitalization. The Philippine currency is converted into US dollar (1 US$ = PhP43).
A ranking such as this which is based on market capitalization presents a forward-looking element for investors’ expectations.
The most valuable industries in the list are telecommunications, beverage, real estate and banking.
