Veckans Affärer and Bisnode Name Antura as a 2015 Super Company

Antura is once again being recognized as one of Sweden's most prosperous growth companies and for the fourth year in a row, it is receiving the “Super Company” award in Bisnode and Veckans Affärer's annual compilation.

Antura is one of 496 companies in Sweden that have been voted as a Super Company this year, the most demanding distinction both to obtain and maintain. In order to be included in the ranking, the company needs to have met stringent demands for growth, profitability and return on capital four years in a row. On average, only one per thousand of Swedish companies meet those requirements.

In order to qualify, a company not “only” needs to demonstrate high and steady growth – here, long-term sales growth in combination with sustainable profitability, viable management of resources over the long term and a good financial strategy are required.

The tough criteria for Super Companies not only mean that it is difficult to get on the list, it is also difficult to stay on the list from one year to the next. A majority of companies therefore consist of “new” companies, i.e., companies that are named as Super Companies for the first time. Antura is one of 28 companies that have met the requirements and been named as a Super Company for four years in a row.

The Super Companies not only perform better financially than other comparable companies, but they also play a key role in creating new jobs. This year’s 496 Super Companies represent roughly 20 % of all new jobs in the private sector.

About the 2015 Super Companies 

The companies that can simultaneously show long-term sales growth, sustainable profitability, viable management of resources over the long term and a good financial strategy have good chances of gaining Super Company status.

Bisnode’s model for identifying and ranking Sweden’s Super Companies is based on the economic performance of the Swedish corporations. The model takes into account and weighs the corporations’ growth, profit, earnings, efficiency, capital structure and financing over the past four years. Of all existing corporations, only 496 made the list in 2015.
