EA Lands On The Fortune 500 List
Electronic Arts is the only dedicated video game publisher on Fortune Magazine's landmark Fortune 500 list based on public companies' gross revenue. You won't see Nintendo or Activision-Blizzard on this list, but the House of Madden is running with the big boys. Where did the company place?
Electronic Arts may have only come in at 494 (one below H&R Block and one above those stiffs at Franklin Resources), but unlike me, they're at least on the list. Fortune 500 categorizes EA in the "computer software" category, along with the likes of heavy hitters Microsoft (#36) and Oracle (#105). EA is listed as having over $4 billion in revenue in 2009, and it's their first year on the list.
