The book arranges the company listings within 17 country sections. Company entries include directory information, stock market capitalization, number of shareholders, company profile, the latest five years of selected income statement and balance sheet data, and the latest five years of financial ratios: return on equity (net income/shareholder's equity), net margin (net income/net sales), and payroll
