Question ID: 589318
I asked the question below and received no answers. I have increased
the offer to $200, changed the quesiton a bit and have suggested an
approach for someone with more time than I have.
1. The question: Replace "top 5000" with "all publicly listed
companies in the top 15 economies in the world with market
capitalisation over $2,000,000,000"
2. Approach: Go to the stock exchange site in each of those countries
and download the companies with >2b in market cap. Then consolidate
the 15 lists - I would accept an unconsolidated list if this makes it
too time consuming and I will get someone in my office to do the merge
3. The original question: I need a list (in excel spreadsheet) of the
top 5000 publicly listed corporations in the world, by market
capitalisation, with name,
country, industry type and market capitalisation
4. New question
I need a list (in excel spreadsheet) of the publicly listed
corporations in the top 15 economies in the world, with market
capitalisation in excess of $2,000,000,000, with name,country,
industry type and market capitalisation
5. increased offer to $200
Come on guys!

I think I can do this, and provide a list of several thousand companies, BUT...

the market cap would be in ranges, along the lines of:

$2.0-2.5 billion

$2.5-3.0 billion


Would that work for you?

To be clearer, I could not provide you the precise market cap -- only
the range data.

Clarification of Question by alans2808-ga on 05 Nov 2005 21:54 PST
To pafalafa
1. Market cap in ranges would be fine
2. I presume several thousand means close to 5000 - 4000 would be fine
but 3000 may not be enough
This is the beginning of a process of determining the size of the
global market for "Compliance solutions". So I am curious to know the
size of the 5000th largest publicly listed company in the world - is
it's market cap more or less than $2b?
So the list is only a reference to help me work out the next step of the process.
eg how many are in each of the 15 countries
  what sort of companies will I find in those ranges outside the USA, UK etc?
Many thanks

I just realised that the title of this question is wrong!
I meant 5000 not 500. 
sorry about that

Here's the deal.

1.  By my count, the number of publicly-traded companies with market
cap above $2 billion is far smaller than 5,000 companies

2.  By lowering the range to $1 billion, I created a list of 3800+ companies.

3.  HOWEVER, the list clearly includes some companies -- not that
many, but some -- whose market cap is expressed in some currency other
than US dollars.  This, of course, makes strict comparisons difficult,
but can still be useful for the sort of screening you have in mind.

Again, there aren't that many in alternative currencies, but you do
need to use the list keeping that possibility in mind.

4.  Since the list is a bit squirrely in that regard, I'm posting it
here for your review, but I have not yet posted it as a formal answer
to your question:

The list is in country order (Venezuala to ARE, which is an
abbreviation for United Arab Emirates -- don't ask my why!).  Within
each country, the companies are ranked by market cap, largest to

If you're handy with spreadsheets, you can easily rearrange this to
suit your particular interests.

Anyway, have a look, and let me know what you think, and whether it
suits you as an answer to your question.

Thanks for getting back to me.

Here is a link to a revised and somewhat cleaned-up file:

I manually checked on a good number of the more obviously off-kilter
companies, and either converted their market cap to US dollars, or
removed them all together if they didn't belong to the over-a-billion
market cap club (a few companies are still listed that were under, but
very close to the 1 billion mark).

I can't claim that the list is perfect at this point--there's simply
too many companies here to manually check each and every market cap
figure for non-US companies.

However, I think I got most of the real doozies.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you on this one.



search strategy -- Used several international company databases, such
as Dun and Bradstreet, Factiva and Mergent, along with accessing
individual country stock exchanges.  Also searched Google for [
company-name "market cap OR capitalization" ] using a large number of
company names.

Fortune Magazine sells a Global 500 list that is in spreadsheet format
as you probably know.

They are ranked by revenue.

The following link takes you to their data store,, click on sample and
then click open.

Don't have the 5000, but I thought this would give you a good start,
the spreadsheet is well done.  The price is $600 from Fortune.  If you
want to offer $400, I'll do the work to get the the 5000 names by
revenue in spreadsheet format.

FYI, Google Answer Researcher names appear hyperlinked in blue type. 
randomsource-ga is not a GA researcher.  Although anyone is welcome to
post comments to a question, only a GA researcher can post a formal
answer or collect a fee.

On top of which, I presume the Fortune 500 list does not meet your needs...correct?

This would probably be a lot easier to research on a bloomberg
terminal than on google.  You can probably get it answered in an ADSK
if you know someone with a terminal.
