List of public corporations by market capitalization

The following is a list of publicly traded companies having the greatest market capitalization. This list is primarily based on the Financial Times Global 500

Market capitalization is calculated from the share price (as recorded on selected day) multiplied by the number of outstanding shares.[1] Figures are converted into USD millions (using rate from selected day) to allow for comparison. Only companies with free float at least 15% are included, value of unlisted stock classes is excluded. Investment companies are not included in the list.[2]
