LONDON, July 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Global energy and commodity price reporting agency Argus Media features in the annual "Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200" league table of high export-growth UK companies for the fourth consecutive year. This ranks the top 200 privately owned UK firms in terms of export growth and also measures export revenue and total turnover.

Companies need a minimum annual export value of £1mn and turnover of £25mn to qualify for the league table. Argus made overseas sales worth £96mn in 2013, up by more than a fifth from a year earlier.

Argus is now ranked as the 18th largest exporter among the companies listed in the "Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200". Last year, Argus was the 24th largest exporter listed.

On the main measure of export growth over the last two years, Argus is ranked in 145th place this year. The league table was published in the Sunday Times on 12 July.
