London, 13 July 2014
Global energy and commodity price reporting agency Argus has risen again in the rankings in the third annual “Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200” league table of UK companies. This highlights the top 200 privately owned UK firms in terms of export growth.
Argus is the twenty-fourth largest company in terms of export value featured in the list this year. Companies need a minimum export value of £25mn to qualify for the league table. Argus made overseas sales worth £80mn in 2013, up by more than a quarter from a year earlier.
The league table ranks companies in terms of growth in exports over the last two years. Argus is ranked in 124th place this year, compared with 146th in 2013 and 151st in 2012, the inaugural year. The league table was published in the Sunday Times on 13 July.
Adrian Binks, Argus Media’s chairman and chief executive, said: “Argus has grown significantly and now sells to customers in 140 countries. More companies are using Argus data to provide the reliable, independent market price assessments that they need to support their industrial and manufacturing activities.”
