Revenues, earnings and market values of FTSE 100 companies
The market capitalization is calculated for the last day of the year 2018. Revenues and earnings are for the fiscal 2018. If a company’s fiscal has ended in January, February or March 2019, the fiscal is considered as fiscal 2018. Note that many of the FTSE 100 companies are reporting their figures in Euros or US Dollars instead of British Pounds.
If measured by annual earnings, the most profitable British companies are Royal Dutch Shell, HSBC Holdings, Rio Tinto plc, Unilever plc and BP plc. The largest loss for the fiscal 2018 was posted by Vodafone Group plc which reported a loss of 8,020 million pounds. This huge loss was primarily due to a loss on the disposal of Vodafone India and other impairments.
