ITC is world’s 6th largest value creator: BCG report
The Financial Express - 22 Sep 2010

Tobaco-to-FMCG  major ITC has been ranked as the world’s sixth largest sustainable value  creator among consumer goods companies globally, according to a recent report  by Boston Consulting Group (BCG).

Titled ‘Threading the Needle: Value Creation in a  Low-Growth Economy’, the report uses a database of over 4,000 companies  worldwide and presents detailed analysis of the total shareholder return (TSR)  of 712 companies across 14 major industries for the five-year period from 2005  through 2009.

It  also identifies the overall top 10 value creators and the top 10 in each of the  industries studied.

The  ranking takes into account only those companies that have been creating  sustainable shareholder value for at least 10 years in a row. Performance was  tracked across the 10-year period to evaluate the companies’ staying power.

“The  very best performers, those that make our annual rankings of the top 10 value  creators by industry, will be companies that find ways to thread the needle,  that is to combine increased cash payouts with above average profitablity  growth in what is a much tougher and more competitive economic environment,”  the report said.
