Planit Climbs the Ranks of AFR’s Top 500 Private Companies in Australia

 13 Sep 2018 

Sydney September 13, 2018 – For the third consecutive year, Planit is proud to be listed in the Australian Financial Review’s (AFR) Top 500 Private Companies List. Ranked at #396, Planit showed a 18.1% increase in revenue from 2017 to climb 65 positions.

The list, compiled by IBISWorld, features the biggest private firms in Australia. Companies are ranked via revenue either sourced from the organisation itself or from publicly available data.

Planit first appeared in the list in 2016 and climbed the ranks to 461 in 2017 with revenue of $91.2 million and a 166.9 per cent year-on-year growth for the 2017/18 financial year, making it the second fastest growing company for the year.

Chris Carter, Planit’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “Although nowadays we are a multinational company, it is still a great honour to be recognised in the country where Planit was founded and took its first steps. We are very proud of our Australian heritage, so any domestic recognition is both humbling and special.”

“The AFR list may recognise our efforts over the past 12 months, but we have worked incredibly hard over two decades to get the company to the position we enjoy today. Being ranked in the top 400 strengthens our resolve to continually deliver and innovate more moving forward.”

This comes off-the-back of being featured amongst the winners of the Westpac Businesses of Tomorrow 2018, which recognises our vision, innovation and growth.

“To be reaching such milestones and be considered a progressive business driving change even after 20 years in the industry demonstrates what is possible with passion, drive and hard work,” said Chris Carter.
