HEN fe500 had decided to use revenue and not market capitalisation asthe key marker for corporate performance,this was not a fashionabledecision.Market cap was the favourite criterion ofall analyses.Allow us to saythat 2008’s stock market bloodbath showed how puzzling market cap can be as asubstantive indicator.Market cap is important.But when markets are responding to global fear anduncertainty,their verdict on a company can be bemusing.Revenue,on the otherhand,reflects the rewards ofa company’s real business activities and can giveyou a good idea ofa company’s performance even the day after LehmannBrothers dies.So,this edition offe500 has a special significance—many ofthe corporatespresent here may have taken a market cap battering.But they can still be judgedand found to have solid attributes.The study,covering 2007-08,shows how the impact ofthe slowdown had begunto set in.Profitability,especially oflarger companies,remained high.However,the sales growth at 17% was much lower than the 28% recorded in 2006-07.The fe500 also profiles the top 15 companies in our list.There are a few notabletrends.Reliance Communication debuts on fe500—another indication ofhow bigthe telecom story can become.And Bharti Airtel pushes established companieslike L&T out ofthe top 10.Most ofthe other big ones continue to hold their place.But interestingly,the only FMCG firm to feature in the list is ITC.The companyhas,over the years,diversified and invested a great deal in the Indian ruralsector.The rewards have just about started to come in.There’s a bigger lesson here.As 2008-09 ends with evidence ofdampenedurban demand,the focus is on rural demand,which seems to be in healthy shape.The
