September 2010: Growth is on the Horizon
|For most of the companies on this year’s Venture 100 list, 2009 was a year they’d probably like to forget. The global recession squeezed bottom lines across the corporate world, mind you, but they hit those operating in Alberta’s resource-oriented economy particularly hard. Total revenues for the companies that make up this year’s Venture 100 list came in 29 per cent lower than those on last year’s list, dropping from $380.6 billion in 2008 to just $269 billion.
With the global economy still looking to find its sea legs, it’s not clear what the future holds for the companies on the Venture 100. What is clear, though, is that they’re better prepared for a wider range of possible outcomes than they were a year ago. If nothing else, that prudent posture will position them for whatever might lie ahead.
For the ninth year in a row, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP has undertaken an analysis of the Venture 100.
