Forbes Asia's "Best Under A Billion" list highlights 200 of the best small and midsized listed companies in Asia Pacific with annual revenue under $1 billion. To qualify for the selection, companies must have revenue between $5 million and $1 billion, positive net income and be publicly traded for at least a year. From a universe of 17,000 companies, qualified candidates are screened on sales growth, earnings growth and return on equity. The result is a final list featuring 200 exceptional small and midsized companies from Asia Pacific.
