The Times 100

May 06, 1997

California publicly held companies, ranked by their Times 100 score. Scores are average rankings from the five categories shown, based on the most recent financial data. About half the state's companies are eligible, those with at least $50 million in sales revenue, $25 million in shareholder equity, a continuous one-year share price history and two consecutive years of positive return on equity. Those companies are then ranked in each category and the rankings averaged. For more information, see "How This Section Was Put Together' on Page 32.
