    Fortune 500 companies based in Texas

    Some data from the recently released list of Fortune 500 company rankings:

    Dallas - Fort Worth - 19 companies in Fortune 500

    The break out within the Metroplex:
    Dallas Metro - 15 (NET)
    Dallas - 8
    Irving - 3
    Plano - 2
    Lewisville - 1
    Richardson - 1
    Fort Worth Metro - 4 (NET)
    Fort Worth - 3
    Arlington - 1


    Just for fun, comparing DFW and Houston, here company tallies and revenue approximates (x1,000,000):

    DFW Top 500 19 Revenue: 376,900
    HOU Top 500 19 Revenue: 216,000

    DFW 1 - 100 3 Revenue: 236,600
    HOU 1 - 100 3 Revenue: 109,200

    DFW 101-200 5 Revenue: 75,620
    HOU 101-200 4 Revenue: 48,000

    DFW 201-300 5 Revenue: 41,060
    HOU 201-300 3 Revenue: 24,700

    DFW 301-400 2 Revenue: 11,000
    HOU 301-400 3 Revenue: 14,371

    DFW 401-500 4 Revenue: 12,600
    HOU 401-500 6 Revenue: 20,400

    Something to look out for:
    One company new to the list is ACS at #488 (previously ranked in the mid 600s). The growth this company experienced last year is expected to continue for the next couple years. Several years ago, ACS purchased several aging buildings and several acres of land east of Central, just north of Citiplace, the address is on Haskell. When the campus environment was purchased, the company stated it would use the remodeled existing buildings until the time came to build something new on the property. I would expect to see some new construction there soon to accommodate the expanding business as well as the higher company profile.

    Fortune 1000
    With 88 Texas companies making the nation's 1000 largest public companies list, Pilgram's Pride of Pittsburg is the only Texas company not headquartered in a major metropolitian area. The 88 companies had 2002 revenue over $800 billion.

    As most expect, DFW and Houston assert dominance on the list.
    Among the 88 largest public companies in Texas, DFW is home to 42% of the companies representing 51% of the revenue; Houston is home to 48% of the companies representing 32% of the revenue.

    Unhappy

    It seems like you don't need to know as much geography in order to pick out the Houston area companies

    Metroplex adds Fortune 500 firms

    Metroplex adds Fortune 500 firms
    By Sandra Baker - Star-Telegram Staff Writer - 6/14/2003

    FORT WORTH - The Fort Worth/Dallas area moved up a notch to fifth in the nation in the number of hometown Fortune 500 companies, thanks to the addition of two Dallas companies and one in Plano to the list of the nation's largest companies.

    North Texas moved up to tie the Houston area, which ranked fourth last year, and the Washington, D.C., area. All three areas had 19 Fortune 500 firms.

    The North Texas Commission has analyzed the latest Fortune 500 list and is releasing the findings today. The list is based on Consolidated Metropolitan Statistical Areas, or CMSAs, rather than by individual cities to better reflect the regional nature of the country's business centers, the commission said.

    Last year, the Metroplex was ranked sixth.

    Three Metroplex companies have been added to the list, and the area lost one when Halliburton moved its corporate headquarters from Dallas to Houston last year.

    Ruben Esquivel, chairman of the North Texas Commission, said the list confirms the commission's findings that the bulk of new jobs and income gains in the region will come from existing local businesses.

    "We are delighted to see Metroplex companies thriving and growing," he said.

    Ranking ahead of the Metroplex were the metropolitan areas of New York with 80 Fortune 500 companies, Chicago with 31, San Francisco with 26 and Los Angeles with 21.

    The ranking puts the Metroplex ahead of the metropolitan areas of Detroit, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Boston and Atlanta, according to the North Texas Commission.

    The companies now ranked in the Fortune 500 include Plano-based Triad Hospitals, an owner and manager of hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers, at No. 442; Dallas-based Affiliated Computer Systems, a provider of business process and information technology outsourcing solutions to commercial and government clients worldwide, at No. 488; and Neiman Marcus, the renowned Dallas-based retailer, at No. 500.

    Other Metroplex Fortune 500 companies include Exxon Mobil in Irving, No. 2; J.C. Penney in Plano, No. 42; Electronic Data Systems in Plano, No. 80; Fleming Co. in Lewisville, No. 102; AMR in Fort Worth, No. 104; TXU in Dallas, No. 134; Kimberly-Clark in Irving, No. 143; Advance PCS in Irving, No. 148; Dean Foods in Dallas, No. 201; Burlington Northern Sante Fe in Fort Worth, No. 205; Texas Instruments in Dallas, No. 223; Centex in Dallas, No. 241; D.R. Horton in Arlington, No. 271; Southwest Airlines in Dallas, No. 306; RadioShack in Fort Worth, No. 358; and Lennox International in Dallas, No. 491.

    One of those we lost and Houston gained is Halliburton. What else did we lose?

    44 - 46...Brinker......................Dallas.......... ......492-507...........3,285.4 - 2,887.1

    Compared to last year, the two companies new to the list are Kinder Morgan in Houston and Brinker in Dallas. Brinker ranked #507 on last years list; a revenue increase of $710,000,000 put the company on the list in 2004. I have no idea where Kinder Morgan came from, it may be a relocation to Houston, or the remnants of Enron. Haliburton has been listed in Houston in both 2003 & 2004. Revenue increases among companies in the oil industry last year was FANTASTIC!

    For this year's list, Neiman Marcus in Dallas and Lennox Int'l in Richardson tallied just under the threshold of the 500 biggest companies. Fleming in Lewsiville disappeared from the list all together - I'm guessing it was bought and corporate HQ designation for this operation is in a different city.

    ?? - 10...Fleming......................Lewisville...... ....???-102............17,561.5
    47 - 45...Neiman Marcus...........Dallas................515-500...........2 948.3 - 3,098.1
    49 - 43...Lennox Int'l...............Richardson.........519-491...........3,025.8 - 3,087.3

    yeah, gas prices are at all time highs and production and pumping costs are probably at relatively all-time lows. The numbers for oil companies look great, but they are screwing us all to get them. Like Cartman says, "I hate those guys.....I really do"

    D-FW Metroplex No. 6 in Fortune 500 headquarters
    http://dallas.bizjournals.com/dallas...ml?jst=b_ln_hl

    The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is the sixth-ranked metropolitan area in the nation that Fortune 500 companies call home, the North Texas Commission said Tuesday. Seventeen of the Fortune 500 currently have headquarters in D-FW. Flanking Dallas-Fort Worth in the rankings are No. 5, Minneapolis-St. Paul-Bloomington, with18 headquarters, and No. 7, Detroit-Warren-Livonia, with16, an NTC survey found. Not surprisingly, the New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island area was the No. 1 headquarters site, with 71 headquarters. Houston-Baytown-Sugar Land -- the only other Texas metropolitan area in the top 10 -- came in third, with 20 headquarters.

    The seventeen companies with D-FW headquarters are:
    Exxon Mobil (No. 2 on the Fortune 500); J.C. Penney (No. 43); Electronic Data Systems (No. 87); AMR (No. 110); Kimberly-Clark (No. 141); Advance PCS -- now known as Caremark -- (No. 143); TXU (No. 177); Texas Instruments (No. 197); Burlington Northern Santa Fe (No. 210); Dean Foods (No. 218); Centex (No. 219); D.R. Horton (No. 241); Southwest Airlines (No. 310); RadioShack (No. 378); Triad Hospitals (No. 436); Affiliated Computer Services (No. 445) and Brinker International (No. 492).

    The Fortune 500 rankings, which were released in March, traditionally list headquarters by city, which doesn't reflect the regional nature of the country's major business centers. That's the reason the NTC decided to do a survey of the top businesses to better reflect their locations in geographic regions, as defined by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget. Dallas and Fort Worth-Arlington have been combined into the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metropolitan statistical area, which includes two metropolitan divisions, the Dallas-Plano-Irving division (which includes Collin, Dallas, Delta, Denton, Ellis, Hunt, Kaufman and Rockwall counties), and the Fort Worth-Arlington division (which contains Johnson, Parker, Tarrant and Wise counties). Hood and Henderson counties were removed from the metropolitan statistical areas this year, and Wise and Delta counties were added.

    The North Texas Commission is a regional non-profit consortium of businesses, cities, counties, chambers of commerce, economic development entities and higher education institutions in the North Texas region.

    The Top 20 Metropolitan Areas with Fortune 500 Headquarters in 2004:
    1. New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island, NY-NJ-PA- 71
    2. Chicago-Naperville-Joliet, IL-IN-WI - 31
    3. Houston-Baytown-Sugar Land, TX- 20
    4. Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana, CA - 18
    5. Minneapolis-St. Paul-Bloomington, MN-WI - 18
    6. Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington, TX - 17
    7. Detroit-Warren-Livonia, MI - 16
    8. Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, PA-NJ-DE - 15
    9. Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, DC-VA-MD - 15
    10. Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta, GA - 14

    Is this a good thing, or just something to brag about?

    That is an excellent question Mustang. You can take from it what you like.

    I guess it is just FYI or bragging rights or whatever you want it to be.

    I think a little of both, but longterm having a Fortune 500 presence on a large scale says something about the job market, and is often used to lure other companies. It speaks to corporate infrastructure and an ability to provide incentives to bring such large companies to town.

    OR

    It speaks to an entrepreneurial enviornment that contains a significant number of young, hungry business minds and executives. Great business opportunities can evolve from a simple lunch meeting or a run-in at a basketball game--but not if you don't have a lot of like-minded individuals in town.

    For all of its faults, I'd say that cities like Dallas, Atlanta, Houston, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco have their fair share of like-minded young entrepreneurs.

    Dallas, Ft Worth and Arlington are the largest three in the metro.


    Is Sugarland and Baytown #2 and #3 for metro Houston? What about Pasadena and Galveston?

    Actually, pasadena isnt too populated, and Galveston is only home to like 50,000. Sugarland has like 70,000, and Baytown has 66,000. The Woodlands has like 75,000. One of our first master planned neighborhoods, Clear Lake, has a pop of 55,000. The thing is, Houston has relatively small suburban cities- and many of them, instead of Dallas with its 120,000+ subrban cities. The only city that will make it up to 120,000 in the near future is The Woodlands, and Sugarland, which will make it to 125,000 and 200,000 respectively, and completion in 2012 and 2025 respectively. ( estimated )
    Our next boom-burbs are Katy, Pearland, ( Short, 15 minute commuter time- relatively, that is ) Richmond ( I'd expect massive growth by 2013, with the commuter rail line ) League city ( close to NASA, and a bunch of other tech stuff being built/will be built ) And Tomball/Spring. There are a bunch of others, but these seem to be the strongest. Most of the other burbs are located within the city limits, which is why the outer burbs are relatively small.

    The Woodlands will have development similar to Las Colinas, with over 18 million SQ of class A office space ( Anadarko is HQ'd here ) and a research based office park within.
    This siphoned a little bit of office from the core, but not too much. Anadarko is one example of this- they have a 30 story 800,000 sq ft tower there.

    Sugarland is up and coming, with several million sq ft of office planned in the near future. it has a new lakeside development with at least 3 million Sq ft. Nothing compared to The Woodlands, but still something. This hopefully won't hurt the core too much. Schlumberger is located here, with over 2,000 employees.

    Katy also has an office park planned, but it probably won't get as big as the ones in The Metro or even Surrounding HOU areas. Alot of katyites ( or whatver ) actually work in the nearby Energy Corridor, and office parks- which are still located in the Houston city limits.
    Houston. Only.

    Holli L. Estridge'Staff Writer

    Industrial chemicals company Celanese Corp. is relocating its global headquarters from Frankfurt, Germany, to its office in Farmers Branch.

    The relocation makes Celanese one of Dallas-Fort Worth's top 20 grossing companies.

    The $5 billion company recently signed a 12-year lease for additional office space at the corner of Luna Road and Interstate 635, adding 30,000 square feet.

    When the corporate expansion is completed, possibly by December, the Farmers Branch office will have an estimated 550 employees.

    The company's Dallas headquarters will house corporate functions that oversee 29 production operations worldwide, with major operations in North America, Europe and Asia, Cullers said.

    The company reported a net earnings loss of $10 million in the first quarter of 2005, compared to $78 million net earnings in the same quarter of 2004. It reported a nine-month net loss of $253 million on revenue of $3.826 billion in 2004.
    The $5 billion company will be the 35th largest investor owned corporation headquartered in Texas, and about the 372nd largest in the US. However, the 3.8 $5 billion company will be the 42th largest investor owned corporation headquartered in Texas, and about the 445th largest in the US - kinda hard to tell which is the real value in the article.

    RadioShack stock soars after new CEO named

    11:23 PM CDT on Friday, July 7, 2006
    By MARIA HALKIAS / The Dallas Morning News


    ... newly named chairman and CEO Julian Day would fix the struggling consumer electronics chain or ready it for sale.
    ...
    Mr. Day,... is credited with leading Kmart out of bankruptcy and was CEO when it regained profitability in 2004.

    ...
    While at Kmart, Mr. Day also ended a grocery supply agreement with Lewisville-based Fleming Cos. in 2003 that put that wholesale supplier – once the nation's largest – out of business
    I wonder if the plan is to resurect Radio Shaq or sell it.

    San Antonio company is huge:

    Justice OKs AT&T-BellSouth merger

    04:20 PM CDT on Wednesday, October 11, 2006

    Associated Press


    WASHINGTON — The Justice Department gave its unconditional approval to AT&T Inc.’s buyout of BellSouth Corp. on Wednesday, a coast-to-coast behemoth that would be the largest U.S. provider of telephone, wireless and broadband Internet services.
    ...
    If the deal wins final government approval, the merger would give San Antonio-based AT&T Inc. total control over the nation’s largest cellular provider, Cingular Wireless, a joint venture of the two companies that serves 57.3 million customers.
    ...
    Combined, the companies generate $117 billion in revenue and operate 68.7 million local phone lines across 22 states stretching coast to coast across the southern United States and up through the Midwest.
    Georgia politicians and such had been trying to convince ATT to move from San Antonio to Atlanta, but didnt get more than a courtsey interview, much like talks between Southwest Airlines and Phoenix officials. The loss of the Fortune 500 company BellSouth HQ is a pretty big deal in Atlanta. Further, most folks expect the Atlanta based Cingular HQ operations will also leave for San Antonio.

    Now, I'm just wondering.... what are the chances Cingular would move to cellphone technology industry friendly Dallas rather than San Antonio??

    Don't know but it would not surprise me to see HQ operations in SA with more tech heavy ops in Dallas area.

    Cadbury Schweppes announces that it intends to separate its confectionery and Americas Beverages businesses.

    http://www.brandspeoplelove.com/csab...0/Default.aspx

    Dont know where the annual revenue would put the Plano based company on the Fortune 500 list, but a ballpark guess puts the beverage company's annual revenue around $4.5 - 5 billion, potentially showing a Fortune 500 ranking between #450-500. I guess the beverage company might still answer to the folks in London, like Frity Lay answers to the folks in New York.

    Easy come, easy go:

    DMN: Community Health to buy Triad

    Associated Press

    Community Health Systems Inc. said Monday it has agreed to buy Plano-based Triad Hospitals Inc. for about $5.1 billion plus $1.7 billion in debt, topping a previous bid by private-equity buyers.

    Franklin, Tenn.-based Community Health agreed to pay $54 per share, the companies said.

    Triad was the 50th largest public company in Texas and the 432nd largest in the country. I guess Fortune Mag. is gonna release the 500 ranking in about a month, so the most recent transactions wont show....

    One of these days, a list of private equity firms and break-out of their holdings might be as relevant as the list of the largest public corporations.

    DMN: CEO drinking in possibilities for Dr Pepper/7Up

    11:26 PM CDT on Saturday, April 7, 2007

    PLANO – Gil Cassagne can't wait to get on with it.

    The 50-year-old chief executive of Cadbury Schweppes Americas Beverages is in limbo, awaiting word on whether the company, best known for making Dr Pepper, 7Up and Snapple, will go public or be sold.
    ...
    Last year, CSAB (as it's known) accounted for 35 percent of Cadbury's revenue and 54 percent of its operating profit.

    Industry speculation is betting on an IPO or spinoff to existing shareholders. If it goes public, CSAB would instantly become a member of the Fortune 500. With 2006 revenue of about $5.5 billion, it would have ranked 392 on the last list.

    Dallas-Fort Worth rides rising tide: Region wins state bragging rights over Houston

    Dallas-Fort Worth rides rising tide
    Region wins state bragging rights over Houston area

    By PAUL FOUTCH / The Dallas Morning News
    pfoutch@dallasnews.com

    The urge to rank everything is our No. 1 pet peeve, but for those keeping score, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. dethroned Exxon Mobil Corp. atop the Fortune 500 list released Monday, and Dallas-Fort Worth topped the Houston area in the number of companies listed.

    D-FW placed 24 companies in the Fortune 500, the fourth-highest among U.S. metro areas, displacing Houston, the perennial No. 4, which came in with 23.

    D-FW added two companies to Fortune magazine's annual ranking of the nation's largest companies – GameStop Corp. of Grapevine and XTO Energy Inc. of Fort Worth. Houston lost a company whose revenue dipped.

    "Houston has historically outranked us," said Lyssa Jenkens, chief economist at the Greater Dallas Chamber.

    "Where we have an advantage over Houston is we continue to attract relocations of companies that are Fortune 500 or Fortune 1,000 companies," she said, citing construction services giant Fluor Corp.'s relocation to Irving two years ago and Comerica Inc.'s recent announcement that it will move here from Detroit.

    D-FW ranks No. 3 in total revenue of Fortune 500 companies, thanks in large part to Irving-based Exxon Mobil and its $347.3 billion in revenue in 2006.

    But low-price retailer Wal-Mart, which is based in Bentonville, Ark., posted $351.1 billion in revenue.

    ...and we will be adding another. At #487, Comerica wasn't included in that count.

    Didnt Halliburton move to Dubai?
    http://abcnews.go.com/Business/wireStory?id=2941931

    Also why is Pilgrim's Pride, under Dallas. I realise they have an office here and the family has a home in Dallas but their headquarters is not here.

    That's why it says Pittsburg. Also, Halliburton is opening up a corporate HQ in Dubai.

    Whatever's going with Haliburton wont register on the Fortune 500 list until next year....

    Ya, the P-Pride HQ is in Pittsburg, but that's closer (geographically and economically) to Dallas than Houston, Austin or San Antonio so that's why it looks like an appendix listing of DFW companies. No big whoop.

    Next year, Dallas will add Comerica; Houston will lose Haliburton. With any luck, DFW can attract one or two more to before the next report. We're on a roll!

    The difference is between a corporate office and corporate HEADQUARTERS. The HQ is what counts as far as corporate homes go. While a bulk of Comerica's corporate employees will reside in Detroit still, their HQ is moving to Dallas.

    I talked to one of my friends from high school whose sister is married to the COO of Halliburton (also a friend from SMU). He said they won't be going to Dubai, it's only a small contingent of execs...

    Your on a roll by adding Comerica, and Houston "losing" some of its execs to Halliburton? A handful of people are moving, that is it.

    You are absolutely correct. They's why I indicated the difference between a corporate office and a corporate headquarter.

    Typically speaking, when a HQ moves, the "old" HQ slowly decreases in size and the new HQ slowly adds staff. So to say that a handful of people are moving is only the immediate truth.

    Adding one company is not being "on a roll". Houston losing some execs doesn't matter either.

    Dallas is on a roll. Fortune 500 companies aren't the only measurement of a local economy. The amount of development, the influx of residents and the amount of city investment in the future. That is a roll.

    I don't know enough about Houston to say whether or not it is doing well. I just know that Dallas is growing very rapidly.

    I thought 3 were gained? It sure seems like a roll from what I've seen for the past 10 years around here. It may not be considered a roll where you're from, but everything is relative.

    Well, Houston as more Fortune 1000 companies than the DFW area as a whole. I hate how the cities up here are all competing against each other. I would much rather have one main central city.

    I agree with you, but the Houston burbs are starting to spread their wings a bit led by The Woodlands. Just a matter of time.
