TransPerfect Named to List of "NY Area's Largest Privately Held Companies"

Crain's New York Business

Given the confidential nature of many private businesses, compiling the Crain's list of top privately held companies is no easy task.

This list is the most comprehensive available, but Crain's acknowledges that it's not possible to identify and include every company that would qualify. Those companies that were contracted for potential inclusion were called or emailed several times and given the opportunity to submit or verify their information.

Data in the list were provided by the companies or obtained from sources including Crain's, Forbes, Dun's Regional Business Directory, Hoover's, Gale Group and the US Securities and Exchange Commission. All data should be considered estimates.

To qualify for inclusion, companies are required to be independent, privately held entities with no parent. They must be headquartered in New York City or Nassau, Suffolk or Westchester counties in New York, or Bergen, Essex, Hudson or Union counties in New Jersey. Nonprofits, hospitals, mutual companies, travel agencies and partnerships—including accounting firms, law firms and consulting firms—are excluded.

The footnotes on Crain's estimates indicate cases in which information did not come directly from the companies and is published as it appeared elsewhere. Some estimates for 2008 revenues and for numbers of employees are based on the 2007 data.

Companies with equal projected 2008 revenues are ranked by total number of employees. If those figures are tied, companies are listed in alphabetical order.
