5 Indian companies lead in global race

Indian companies, like their Western counterparts, are becoming more global with mergers and acquisitions.

The Indian School of Business, Hyderabad, and Brazil's Fundacao Dom Cabrall have released the results of their joint survey on which Indian companies are truly international when it comes to global presence.

The survey covers the period from FY 2008-09 to FY 2010-11.

The Transnational Index uses a combination of three measures to determine the degree of internationalisation of companies:

i) Percentage of international assets - consolidated international assets/consolidated total assets.

ii) Percentage of international revenues - consolidated international revenues/consolidated total revenues.

iii) Percentage of foreign employees - total number of foreign employees/total number of employees.

Let's have a look at some of the Indian companies that have been rated high on the Index.

NOTE: These companies have international asset base of less than $500 million and are not ranked in the Index's top 20.
