    The companies included in the list have at least USD 1 billion in revenues, and there are eight companies from the Philippines namely:

    • Ayala Corp
    • Cosco Capital
    • GT Capital Holdings
    • JG Summit Holdings
    • Jollibee Foods
    • Megaworld
    • San Miguel Food and Beverage
    • SM Investments

    Companies that are candidates for a spot on the list are evaluated based on various metrics, including their average five-year sales, operating income growth, return on capital, and projected growth over the next one to two years. Those with the highest composite score are included in the final list of 200.

    The goal of the list is to determine the best-run companies in the region based on a variety of metrics, not just a single one. These companies represent the best of Asia-Pacific’s big companies.

    Aside from this, the list also puts the spotlight on the connection between the companies and members of Forbes Asia’s rich lists.

    “Nearly two-thirds of the companies on this list are controlled by or connected to families or individuals who have appeared on Forbes Asia’s rich lists,” said Justin Doebele, editor of Forbes Asia.

    Companies that are in the industries of retail, real estate, banking, transportation, and food & beverage manufacturing dominated the list with Japan’s Advantest, producer of semiconductor production and testing equipment, as the front-runner.
