Houston tops Fortune's fastest-growing companies listContinuing from our last post on Houston's high rankings on the Fortune Global 500, we also recently scored well on another Fortune ranking of the fastest-growing companies. More evidence of the energy boom and its impact on local companies and Houston.
I was going to write up my own analysis, but the Greater Houston Partnership press release sums it up pretty nicely:
Of the 100 companies ranked,
The 12 Houston-area companies on the list, in order of ranking, include: Vaalco Energy (1); Edge Petroleum (8); Frontier Oil (11); Southwestern Energy (35); Swift Energy (40); Grant Prideco (48); Helix Energy Solutions Group (50); EOG Resources (53); ConocoPhillips (75); National Oilwell Varco (93); Quanex (94) and Oil States International (95).
Rankings were based on earnings-per-share growth; revenue growth; and total return.
