The Annual BW Real 500 ranking involves screening a database of over 10,000 companies. All companies — both listed on the stock exchanges and the unlisted — whose audited financial data was available with Ace Equity Corporate Database as on October 1, 2014, were considered for the exercise. Listing data was taken from the respective stock exchanges.

We eliminated companies whose total income and total assets added up to less than Rs 100 crore to filter out the smaller and marginal companies. Our pruned list, therefore, has companies with a decent size.

We first considered consolidated results wherever available; while standalone results were only considered in cases where no consolidated results are available with Ace Equity.

In the ranking, many companies close their accounts as on March 31st. However, for companies where the books are closed on other dates, the respective year-ends were considered such as December 31st, or September 30th.

For all stock market-related data, NSE data has been used (except for companies that are listed on the BSE). The average market capitalisation has been calculated for trading days between 1st April 2015 to 31st August 2016, while market cap on the NSE has been considered as on 31st August, 2016.

The main rankings of BW Real 500 are on the basis of their combined total assets and total income. However, respective parameters such as shareholder returns, etc, have been considered and ranked separately. In some cases, there is a difference in total asset and other figures available with Ace Equity for the previous years. Hence, rankings for the previous years have been regrouped and rearranged wherever necessary. Other changes may be there due to classification of data such as deferred tax, income calculations, etc.
