The main companies in the Portuguese economy are identified, analysed and classified in Rankings prepared alongside our publishing partners.
The Rankings are obtained from the data collected and processed with Informa D&B’s diligence and expertise.
In partnership with Exame magazine, we publish the list of the 500 Biggest & Best domestic companies every year.
Selected carefully by Informa D&B and Deloitte for Exame magazine, the Portuguese SMEs with the best performance in the various sectors of activity are revealed.
To create this list, Informa D&B and Expresso selected a set of indicators and economic-financial ratios. The data collected and processed were then used with Informa D&B’s diligence and expertise.
These companies are distinguished by their fast pace of growth in number of employees, turnover and export volume.
Our database identifies GAZELLE companies, i.e. high-growth companies that are at most five years old at the time of the database’s creation.
