NEWAG S.A. awarded the Forbes Diamond 2015

FORBES mon­thly again awar­ded NEWAG S.A. with its Dia­mond. The com­pany came third in the ran­king of big com­pa­nies of Mało­pol­ska Pro­vince and twen­tieth in Poland. The ran­king com­pri­sed com­pa­nies which in 2014 posted the highest ave­rage annual value growth and which reached the sales reve­nue levels of at least PLN 5 million.  

The ran­king was pre­pa­red by Bisnode Pol­ska– a busi­ness intel­li­gence agency. The finan­cial data used in the ran­king came from offi­cial infor­ma­tion filed by com­pa­nies  with the KRS — Natio­nal Court Regi­ster in 2014. On the basis of this data, Bisnode Poland pre­pa­red a list of com­pa­nies which were rated as cre­di­ble i.e., these that are  pro­fi­ta­ble (on the bases of EBIT and ROA), have high cur­rent cash-flow figure and do not have out­stan­ding lia­bi­li­ties. Com­pa­nies that met all these cri­te­ria also had to report a posi­tive finan­cial result and the equ­ity value. Addi­tio­nally, the sour­ces for the finan­cial results obta­ined by the win­ners were chec­ked in order to exc­lude com­pa­nies where a sud­den incre­ase in value was con­tri­bu­ted to one-time extra­or­di­nary incidents.
