Euromoneys fifth Latin American company ranking is based on a survey of market analysts at major banks and research institutes in Latin America.
We received 105 responses in 2010. Respondents were asked to nominate the top-three companies in each of the countries or sectors they covered, bearing in mind market strength, profitability, growth potential, quality of management and earnings. Points were awarded on a scale of 4:3:2, for first-, second- and third-place nominations respectively. Companies results are presented as a percentage of total points received in each category, together with the number of companies that received points in each category.
A number of other countries and industry sectors were included in the survey, but received insufficient responses to be published.
