LONDON, July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Global energy and commodity price reporting organisation Argus has risen in the rankings in the second annual "Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200" league table of UK companies. This ranks private-sector firms with the fastest growth in export sales.
Argus reached 146th place in the 2013 table. To obtain a place in the table, companies need to average international sales growth of more than 25pc/yr over the previous two financial years. Argus' non-UK sales growth has averaged 35.78pc/yr in this period. Argus is in the top 30 of private-sector companies for sales outside the UK, accounting for £62.3mn export revenue in the last financial year.
The league table was published on 7 July in the Sunday Times.
"We are pleased to be recognised as one of the fastest-growing UK export companies for the second year in a row and to have improved our rating over last year," Argus chief executive and chairman Adrian Binks said. "Argus' business is truly international, with more than 80pc of our sales being to companies outside the UK. We have a diverse and broad customer base and are glad that our contribution to shedding light on opaque and complex markets is valued."
