GM’s revenues for the year totaled $207.35 billion, while Toyota, who’s likely to overtake GM in this year’s list, was close behind on $204.75 billion. Despite Fortune’s rankings, Toyota actually surpassed GM in the global sales race last year with a lead of roughly 128,000 vehicles according to data compiled by Automotive News.
Retuning to the top spot was retailer Wal-Mart, who posted annual revenues of $351.14 billion, and in second place were oil companies Exxon Mobile and Royal Dutch Shell with annual revenues of $347.25 billion and $318.85 billion respectively. Not surprisingly, six of the top ten companies were oil companies. Just remember that next time you’re filling up at a fuel station.
