From a universe of 3,200 listed companies in the Asia-Pacific region, Forbes said candidates for the “Best Over A Billion” list had been evaluated based on more than a dozen metrics including their average five-year sales, operating income growth, return on capital, and projected growth over the next one to two years.

“Those having the highest composite score earned a place in the final list of 200. The goal is to find the region’s best-run companies that are doing well on not just one metric but across many of them. The result is a list that represents the best of Asia-Pacific’s big companies,” the magazine said.
