Deloitte Fortune 500 (2017 Ranking) 2017-04-13T00:44:34+00:00

Deloitte Fortune 500

 

According to trusty old wikipedia the Fortune 500 is

“an annual list compiled and published by Fortune magazine that ranks 500 of the largest U.S. corporations by total revenue for their respective fiscal years. ”

— Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fortune_500

 




It also says that the list is composed of public and privately held companies. Unfortunately Deloitte is not ranked in the Fortune 500. Too sad. Don’t worry though!!! They should be ranked in the Fortune 500. Deloitte is a large private company in the United States, so they should be on the list.

Maybe they don’t have enough revenue to be on the list? Well, no that can’t be true because they have more than enough revenue to be on the list. Why do I say that? Well let’s analyze it further.

First on the list is Walmart with well over $400 billion in revenues for their last fiscal year.

Let’s take a look at Deloitte’s latest fiscal year revenues to understand where they might land.

Deloitte Fortune 500 Ranking

As of their last global financial report, Deloitte earned 2016 revenues of $36.8 billion internationally.

Let’s trace back to the Fortune 500 list to see where that amount of revenue might land.

If you take a look at the Fortune 500 rankings, it appears that Deloitte would land between two large insurance companies. They would be between Allstate and United Airlines. Allstate had $35.7 billion in revenue for their latest fiscal year. United Airlines earned about $37.9 billion in revenue, so we could say that  Deloitte would be above Allstate.

Since Deloitte would replace Allstate in this ranking that means that Deloitte would earn a ranking of 81 on the Fortune 500.

That is not too shabby because it puts them in the Top 100 of companies of the Fortune 500. That is the top 20% of all earnings of major corporations which is not too bad.
