To produce its ranking of America’s 100 Best Small-Cap Companies, Forbes used data from FactSet to screen more than 1,000 companies with a market value between $300 million – $2 billion and found 509 companies that had positive sales growth over the past 12 months and a share price of at least $5. The top 100 ranking was based on earnings growth, sales growth, return on equity, and total stock return for the latest 12 months available and over the last five years.
PGT Innovations is the largest private employer in Sarasota County with approximately 2,500 team members at its North Venice-based headquarters.
