Top 10 Chinese-listed companies with biggest brand value
China's tech giant Tencent has been crowned the most valuable brand among Chinese-listed companies this year, beating the country's telecom companies and big banks, according to a recently released list.
The rankings prepared by Tsinghua University's National Entrepreneurship Research Center and National Business Daily, looked at 4344 Chinese enterprises that were listed on the A-share market or as concept stocks overseas as of last year.
"We can measure any Chinese listed company's brand value on the basis of its data," Professor Zhao Ping of Tsinghua University's National Entrepreneurship Research Center told china.com.cn.
In the list, the concept of brand value covers a company's business earnings, a brand's contribution to total revenue and brand potential.
The top five companies' brand value combined accounts for 53 percent of the brand value of the top 100 companies.
Let's take a look at the top 10 most valuable Chinese brands.
