Some Findings

Research Strategy

We used the Empresas Mais list as a starting point of our research and referenced the information with the companies' websites, company investor reports, company databases such as LinkedIn and Bloomberg, and digital business intelligence tools such as BN Americas, if necessary, to look for the HQ address. To make sure that we are looking at the right company, we also check if the HQ state address and the industry type in the Empresas Mais list match the HQ address listed on the website or the LinkedIn/Bloomberg profile and the products and services offered belong to the listed industry.

For Ericsson and Ball Beverage, they do not have a country-specific website, so we used the Brazil page of the global website of Ericsson and the South America page for Ball Beverage.

For Esho Empresa De Servicos Hospitalares, we could not find a website that matches the company's name. However, we found a third-party company report that gives the website of Hospital Pró-Cardíaco as Esho's website. We also found the company registration information of Esho that says the company is now closed, and to contact Pro-Cardiaco Hospital for correspondence. Therefore, we used Hospital Pró-Cardíaco's website as Esho's website.

For Panvel Farmacias, since all the addresses listed on their website are the locations of their pharmacies, we used its parent company headquarters address. Its parent company is Grupo Dimed.

FCA (Ferrovia Centro-Atlantica S.A.), or Central Atlantic Railway, is part of VLI. Its website is still working, but redirects to VLI's website, so we still used the old website for FCA.

Research Strategy

We started the research by examining official sources of information for listed companies. We searched through company sites, press releases, annual reports, earnings releases, among others. We were able to ascertain the 2018 revenue for all the companies that are publicly listed in Brazil. Alternatively, we were unable to find the latest revenue for privately-held companies using this methodology. We identified the privately-held companies by cross-referencing through credible business listing portals like Bloomberg, Crunchbase, PitchBook, Statista, LinkedIn, among others. Further, we referred to the Empresas Mais’ database to provide the revenues only for privately-held companies and global companies that did not disclose the revenue generated from their Brazilian operations.
