Austria’s Leading Companies: A competition based on numbers, data and facts

For Austria’s Leading Companies, it’s the company’s performance that counts. We look at balance sheet data, turnover and revenue growth over the past three years, and we weight the data to ensure objective results. Our ALC data experts make the final allocation to the relevant categories. 

Banks, insurance firms and financial service providers are unfortunately not eligible to participate in ALC as their balance sheets are not comparable to those of companies in other industries.
