The Forbes Global 2000 uses four metrics to obtain this ranking: Revenue, Assets, Market value, and profits. Consequently British based Barclays plc has the biggest assets of any public company in the World with $1,587bn USD and is ranked 20th; [http://www.forbes.com/lists/2006/18/Assets_1.html] whilst ExxonMobil with the biggest revenue, profits, and market value is only 6th. [http://www.forbes.com/lists/2006/18/MktVal_1.html]

The Fortune Global 500 uses only a single metric, revenue, to get its rankings, and accordingly its list differs from the Forbes list. Also, companies for which revenue is available but that do not trade publicly (and therefore for which market value cannot be calculated), are eligible for the Fortune list but not for the Forbes list.
