SA firms on Forbes Global 2000

first_img18 April 2006Nineteen South African companies have made it onto this year’s prestigious Forbes Global 2000, which ranks the size of firms listed on the world’s stock exchanges according to their market value, turnover, profit and assets.Companies in the financial services sector top the list, with the Standard Bank and First Rand banking groups ranked, respectively, as the world’s 285th and 361st largest public companies.Next comes synthetic fuels giant Sasol, at 390th place, followed by insurance company Sanlam (454th) and telecommunications parastatal Telkom (589th).Many companies founded and grown in South Africa but now based elsewhere in the world made it even higher on the list. Old Mutual, which moved its head office to London in 1999, came in 185th place. The Anglo American mining group was ranked 116th, and beer company SAB Miller 370th.Mining conglomerate BHP Billiton, which has significant interests in South Africa but is classified as UK/Australian, was ranked 101st.A balanced assessmentThe Forbes list is considered one of the most balanced assessments of the size of listed companies, as it uses four different factors: market value, turnover, profit and assets. This is in contrast to rankings that concentrate on single measures, such as market capitalisation, resulting in misleadingly skewed results.With 19 companies on the list, South Africa is far ahead of the rest of Africa in terms of global business. Egypt scored only three firms, and Liberia and Morocco one each.The country is also ahead of, among others, Mexico (with 17 global companies), Austria (10), Denmark (11), Finland (15), Greece (12), Ireland (8), Norway (9), Russia (14), Saudi Arabia (5) and Singapore (14). Brazil is in the same spot as SA, with 19 global companies, while mainland China has 28 and India 33.The US predictably tops the Forbes Global 2000, with 693 companies. Next is Japan with 320 companies, followed by the UK with 130.US financial services firm Citigroup clinched the number-one spot on the list, followed by General Electric, Bank of America, American International Group and HSBC Group.The full list of South African companies on the Forbes Global 2000 is as follows: 285 – Standard Bank Group (banking)361 – FirstRand (banking)390 – Sasol (oil and gas operations)454 – Sanlam (insurance)589 – Telkom (telecommunications services)815 – MTN Group (telecommunications services)976 – Remgro (conglomerates)1 114 – Bidvest Group (conglomerates)1 123 – Investec (diversified financials)1 145 – Impala Platinum Holdings (materials)1 155 – Imperial Holdings (transportation)1 280 – Barloworld (conglomerates)1 508 – Naspers (media)1 524 – Metropolitan Holdings (diversified financials)1 812 – Gold Fields (materials)1 841 – Sappi (materials)1 892 – Steinhoff International Holdings (consumer durables)1 894 – Alexander Forbes (diversified financials)1 989 – Tiger Brands (food, drink)Forbes Global 2000 companies with strong links to South Africa include: 101 – BHP Billiton (mining)116 – Anglo American (mining)185 – Old Mutual (financial services)370 – SAB Miller (food, drink)SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Please see my details pros and cons, below. Positives: excellent price, super fast delivery, picture accurate (including colour, which was important to me), comes with 2 hair nets to wear under the wig. Negatives: the fringe is rather bulky. The cut for the longer sections of hair is the same as on the picture, however, i feel that the fringe on my wig is more bulky than the pictures suggest. There is quite a bit of shedding (i am not sure if this is normal as i have not bought a wig before?). It stayed on my head effectively and actually seemed really good.The wig arrived promptly but the colour is lighter than demonstrated on the graphic.Wig is such a wonderful color. I ordered the light blue shade and i couldn’t be happier with it. Light weight, simple to handle. Easy to have on – i even use it out with my winter hat on 🙂 thank you.Got it for a kim attainable cosplay and it was excellent.Good but paler than expected. Stunning wig and truly nice fashion but colour is a ton paler than envisioned. Can take dye definitely nicely even though.Protection of the wig all round and it was quick to place on. Arrived a few times soon after purchasing and the cap did appear aswell there was complete coverage of the wig all round and it was quick to place on. It seems to be really reasonable with some highlights and came with curls which is a good touch ( intentional or not) but in excess of all really good.A fantastic high-quality wig for the price tag, the color and condition are as for every the photograph, extremely recommended.The hair is quite slim at the again, a gust of wind and you can expect to be able to explain to it’s a less costly wig. Also the fringe is gonna have to have cutting as it just will not sit right. With a beanie on you get away with the ‘cute geek’ search.It truly is a terrific healthy and length and will be fantastic for halloween. The only fault i have is that the fringe is a little bit much too long. It is a excellent healthy and size and will be brilliant for halloween.Very good wig for a first rate price, arrived in time for occasion and went down a storm.Well, didn’t genuinely search at it myself, it was despatched off to the granddaughter jointly with a mermaid costume as a princess ariel costume. And from how substantially the minor a person liked it, while dressed up as ariel in it – it will have to be 5 stars all the way.This is wonderful quality and cozy purchased it for a costume occasion and it was fab :).I have on it to higher education a whole lot and it is really super comfortable and simple to implement. Most of my class imagined it was serious.Cosplay salon dusty blue wig. I purchased the dusty blue and it truly is truly nice. Tender, long, least fallout. Arrived vacuum packed even though which has brought on the hair fibers at the best to build a parting. And you can usually dress in a hat.Does not skinny at all, won’t fall out like most wigs.Really great for the price tag and seems to be remarkable.Great for any individual wanting thick, long and smooth hair, or very simple cosplay. The color is as pictured, the cap it will come with fits effectively, wig doesn’t slide off, its pretty straightforward to brush, its gorgeous. Only situation is it took a when to get there.last_img read more

What Chris Brogan and Madonna Have in Common

first_img Topics: Chris is often pigeonholed by people as the social media expert. He prefers, however, to think of himself as someone who helps small and medium sized businesses and entrepreneurs. Through his practical advice his goal is to help small businesses work better in a sustainable way. One way he demonstrates his expertise is through his blog which is constantly evolving. The direction he is taking his blog this year is making it more of a journal, allowing people to get inside his thinking process. Personal Branding Chris Brogan is a believer in experimentation and testing. He tends to experiment quite a bit, as witnessed by the number of projects he has going at the same time. One of the things he believes in is testing or trying things before he writes about them. Basically, “If I have not really done it myself, how can I talk about it?” He likens this approach to the actress Julianne Moore who says she does one film for Hollywood and then follows that with one film for the heart. The heart films provide deeper fulfillment, but the Hollywood films offer greater visibility. Chris understands that for people to read the blog posts he wants to write he needs to make sure that he writes those posts that will be searched for. This way he keeps his rankings high and remains visible. “If I am not visible,” he says, “then I am not helpful.” Trust Agent Blog Topics Newsletter He believes in changing his blog periodically to fit the needs of his readers. He likens this to way Madonna changes herself each year and as a result stays relevant. Chris senses that bringing readers more into the inside of how things are done is what they want more of. They’re asking, “What can I take out of Chris Brogan’s world and bring into my world?” ChrisBrogan.com Originally published May 18, 2011 8:00:00 PM, updated October 18 2015 HubSpot is all about helping small and medium sized businesses.

Chris Brogan is also all about helping small and medium sized businesses, which he does through practical advice based on his own experience. His blog Chris is one of the most prolific writers on the Internet, and one of the ways he can continue his large output is by writing on the one hand what he wants and on the other writing what he knows will do well online and Content Marketing Experimentation and Testingcenter_img , a columnist for Entrepreneur Magazine, president of Human Business Works, “entrepreneur in residence” at Cross Tech Ventures, and a public speaker. And there is more. .  Social Media 101 Collaborate Chris is believer in collaboration and in helping people do good things. The more people you can help and the more you can collaborate with, the better it is when it comes time to look for a resource or help with a project. This is one way to have the network that can support your efforts. This blog post is based off of David Garland’s interview with Chris Brogan on his HubSpot sponsored web series “The Rise to the Top.” You can watch the full interview below. Chris says that many people try to go for the big project that delivers the homerun. His approach is more toward having many different projects that bring in their own small or medium size revenue stream. His advice is to be hungry for the win rather than hungry for the money. If you go for the win, the money will come. One of his more recent ventures is is constantly in the top 5 blogs according to Advertising Age. He is author of .
