The Nikkei Asian Review has analyzed the growth, profitability, efficiency and financial soundness of the companies in the Asia300 list, based on their earnings for the most recent fiscal year. A company's power ranking is a comprehensive assessment of its overall strength, taking into account five key management indicators, using data from QUICK-FactSet.
- Revenue, 5-year (Compound annual growth rate)
- Net profit, 5-year (Compound annual growth rate)
- Net profit margin
- ROE (Return on equity)
- Equity ratio
The companies are ranked for each of the five indicators, with the highest-rated company given a score of 100. Companies that lack data, or that have negative values, such as net losses or liabilities exceeding assets, do not receive a numerical score and are placed at the bottom of the ranking for the relevant criterion. For companies whose fiscal years changed during the rating period, figures from the previous fiscal year are combined to create data for a full 12-month period.
