We analyzed data on 331 companies on our Asia300 list to gauge their performance over the five years through fiscal 2015. Growth was measured by calculating the percentage change in sales over that period, profitability was measured based on ratio of net profit to sales, efficiency was calculated using return on equity, and stability was rated based on equity capital ratio.
Points were assigned for each of the criteria, and companies were ranked according to their cumulative scores. We excluded companies for which calculations could not be made due to changes in book-closing dates, an excess of liabilities over assets or because losses rendered growth comparisons impossible. The data was provided by QUICK-FactSet.
