How the ranking works

The survey of the 500 Largest in the South is the largest regional ranking of companies in Brazil, carried out by Grupo Ajante and PWC Brazil. In the 33rd edition, data from companies in Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul were analyzed using 2022 balance sheets, published throughout the first half of this year. For the classification criteria, the Weighted Value of Greatness (VPG) was used, which considers three numbers, which capture 50% of the net equity balance, 40% net revenue and 10% net profit or loss, based on publications in newspapers , internet or sending information spontaneously by companies.
