The Methodology used to rank the companies are mentioned below:
• All the US IT companies having at least $ 2000 Million (Revenue), Positive Profit and $ 2500 Million (Market Capitalization) are considered as a first level cut-off to consider them for ranking.
• For each parameter, highlighted in bold above, the companies are arranged in ascending order individually i.e. 3 different ascending order list for 3 different parameters.
• The process of normalisation is then followed, For example: the company with highest revenue is assigned 100 points. All the others companies in the revenue list is then assigned points with respect to the leader in that list.
Like the second companies points are; (Total Revenue of the Company / Total Revenue of 1st Company) * 100.
Similarly the third company points are assigned keeping the denominator same as above.
• Similar process is followed for other two parameters i.e. Profits and Market Capitalization.
• Finally a consolidated list is prepared where the points obtained from all the three parameters are added. Maximum possible score which can be obtained by a company is 300.
• The list of top 10 companies is then prepared based on the points obtained by them. The company getting the maximum point is assigned top rank and so on till all 10 companies are obtained.
