Not This Year
The top 300 revenue producers
for 2001 amongst high tech companies was led by IBM at $85B. Matsushita
came in at #2 with $54B. Nokia came in at #13 with $28B. Microsoft was
next at $27B. Oracle, who's exec topped the compensation list, hit #40
with $11B. At 150 was First International Computer (who?) at $3B. Dead
last at #300 was Orion Electric Co. with a paltry $97.5M. Dang, just
missed this list, too. If only it had gone to #301.
