Republic Services' rank improves

The company ranking improved in 2010, moving up the Fortune 500 list to 278th compared to 587th in 2009. This was based on its 2009 revenue of $3,685 million (a change of 5 million compared to 2010) and profits of $74 million (a change of $421 million compared to 2009).

Another point of view

To many investors, profits are more important than the revenue a company earns. If the Fortune 500 was ranked by profits instead of revenue then Republic Services would be ranked 215th rather than 278th due to its profits of $495 in 2010.
