14 Georgia companies on Fortune 500

May 17, 2010

Taken from the Atlanta Business Chronicle

Georgia landed 14 companies on the 2010 Fortune 500 list, one more than it had in 2009 thanks to the relocation of NCR Corp. from Dayton, Ohio, to Duluth, Ga.

Atlanta tied for fourth-most Fortune 500 companies with 10.

Fortune magazine compiles its list of the biggest and best businesses based on 2009 fiscal and calendar year financial performance, focusing on revenue.

The Home Depot Inc. (NYSE: HD) ranked higher than any other Georgia company, but fell four spots to land at 29th with $66.2 billion in revenue. Fortune said the “tight credit, a dormant housing market, and near-double digit unemployment” hurt Home Depot’s revenue. “CEO Frank Blake also is slowing down Home Depot’s expansion plans — the retailer will open only a dozen new stores this year, compared with the hundred-plus it used to add in years past — and focusing on customer service, something its rival Lowe’s is better known for.”

Here’s the complete list of Georgia’s Fortune 500 companies for 2010, their 2009 revenue as reported by Fortune, and their 2010 and 2009 rankings:
United Parcel Service Inc. $45.3 billion, 43 in 2010, 43 in 2009.
