Note: Focus assessed the value of the portfolio based on indicators of all key companies owned by the rating participants. The spotlight was on Ukrainian business assets. In case of proven ownership of foreign assets, they were also taken into account. In the presence of a declaration of property status, the real estate owned by the participant, as well as bank accounts and dividends from the business were considered.

As a reminder, more than 30 agricultural companies are included in the rating of companies by their level of income.
