These Are the Philippines' Top Corporations by Revenue
San Miguel Corporation is the country’s top corporation by gross revenue for 2019, according to the annual ranking of the country’s Top 200 Corporations published by BusinessWorld newspaper. The company, led by Chairman and COO Ramon Ang, posted revenues of P1.07 trillion last year, less than a percentage point (.8 percent) higher than it earned in 2018.

Holding company Top Frontier Investment Holdings Inc, SMC’s largest shareholder, came in second with gross revenues of P1.07 trillion, while another SMC company, Petron Corp., is at third with P520.61 billion.
