SA's top 100 companies: 80-51


The countdown continues of state’s top 100 companies in InDaily’s South Australian Business Index.

Comments Print article

The Index, based on analysis of market capitalisation by local financial services company Taylor Collison, shows a mix of business sectors including agriculture, food and beverage, building and construction, IT, mining, professional services and finance.

The list shows the diversity of South Australian companies, as well as the dynamic nature of doing business – which isn’t always a positive.

Until recently, today’s list would have also included Home Australia – the building company of South Australian senator Bob Day, which collapsed this week. The company would have ranked solidly in the middle of the top 100.

The full top 100 will be revealed in InDaily tomorrow.
