Argus named a top UK exporter for fourth year running

Global energy and commodity price reporting agency Argus Media features in the annual “Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200” league table of high export-growth UK companies for the fourth consecutive year. This ranks the top 200 privately owned UK firms in terms of export growth and also measures export revenue and total turnover.

Companies need a minimum annual export value of £1mn and turnover of £25mn to qualify for the league table. Argus made overseas sales worth £96mn in 2013, up by more than a fifth from a year earlier.

Argus is now ranked as the 18th largest exporter among the companies listed in the “Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200”. Last year, Argus was the 24th largest exporter listed. 

On the main measure of export growth over the last two years, Argus is ranked in 145th place this year. The league table was published in the Sunday Times on 12 July. 

Argus Media chairman and publisher Adrian Binks said: “Exports are key to Argus’ success, accounting for 90pc of our sales. We opened our 20th office this year, in Riga, and continue to invest in new products, services and technology to meet the needs of our customers in 140 countries around the world.”
