Top 10 cele mai profitabile IMM-uri din America

Ghidandu-se dupa regulile conventionale, orice investitor este de parere ca, pe timp de criza, e mai bine sa nu investesti in companiile mici si sa mizezi pe intreprinderile mari, mai sigure.

Totusi, in ultimele saptamani, haosul nu a avut o

traiectorie previzibila, asa ca intelepciunea conventionala i-a costat mult pe

cei care "au gandit mare ". In contextul

in care falimentele unor giganti ca AIG, Lehman Brothers sau Wachovia,

au zguduit lumea financiara, cei care au pariat pe intreprinderile mici si

mijlocii au avut de castigat.

Forbes a identificat care sunt cele mai puternice IMM-uri din

SUA. Companiile din top au vanzari cuprinse intre 5 si 750 milioane de dolari

iar clasificarea a luat in calcul rentabilitatea, cresterea vanzarilor si a

profitului in ultimele 12 luni.

Compania anului este GeoResources. Anul trecut, compania din

Houston, Texas, a fuzionat cu Southern

Bay Oil & Gas si a cumparat o subsidiara a Chandler Energy. Aceste mutari

au ajutat GeoResources sa -si sporeasca rezervele de petrol de sase ori, la

10.7 milioane de barili, iar rezervele de gaz natural la aproape 900 milioane

de metri cubi .

Compania se asteapta sa foreze cate un nou put la fiecare 60-75 de

zile, pentru urmatorii 3 ani, pe proprietatile din Montana si Dakota de Nord si

din Muntii Stancosi. In iunie, reprezentantii companiei au anuntat cel de-al

treilea parteneriat cu General Electric, urmarind sa se extinda in Oklahoma.

Pe locul 2, se situeaza "vechea" DXP Enterprises, din

Houston, infiintata acum mai bine de 100 de ani. Compania distribuie produse industriale,

incluzand pivoti, aparatura pentru sudura sau echipamente de protectie. Clientii din sectorul

economic aduc 30% din profituri. DXP detine 117 magazine, raspandite in 32 de

state, preluand 9 companii, doar in ultimii 3 ani.

Pe a treia pozitie se afla compania TEAM, care produce

sisteme de conducte si canale pentru

intreprinderile petroliere si

energetice.

Pe urmatorul loc se claseaza Quality Systems, producator

software pentru aparatura medicala- o piata in crestere, care se dezvolta

foarte rapid. Steven Plochocki a devenit

director executiv in august, cand predecesorul sau, Louis Silverman, si-a dat demisia pe neasteptate. Silverman a lasat pe umerii noului director

mai multe afaceri incurcate si procese

pe care cativa investitori nemultumiti le-au intentat companiei. In pofida

acestor probleme, actiunile Quality Systems au crescut cu 25% sub directoratul

lui Silverman.

Pozitia a cincea revine celor de la PetMed Express, producator

de medicamente si alte produse pentru animalele de companie. Vanzarile au

crescut , doar in primul trimestru al acestui an, cu 16 %, pana la 68.4

milioane de $.

Pe a sasea pozitie s-a clasat Petro Quest Energy- fondata in

1985, care exploateaza zacamintele de petrol cu grad scazut de risc ( 89% sanse

de success) si gaze naturale in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas si in bazinul Gulf

Coast. Din 1999, de cand a fost listata la bursa, vanzarile companiei au

crescut anual cu o medie de 53%.

Stanley este o companie nou intrata in topul Forbes, pe

pozitia a saptea, dar care are, deja, 42 de ani de experienta. Timp de 20 de

ani a fost o afacere a doar doua persoane, care se ocupau de studiile maritime. Astazi are 4 700 de angajati. Creeaza si

manageriaza centre de date pentru 40 de agentii guvernamentale. Ministerul

Apararii este cel mai mare client al companiei, furnizand 66% din profiturile

Stanley, in 2007. Angajatii firmei detin 50% din actiuni.

Pe locul opt se situeaza LHC Group, companie ce ofera

ingrijire medicala la domiciliu. Pana acum, LHC a prosperat, desi, cu

siguranta, se va confrunta cu noi reglemetari impuse de viitoarea guvernare.

Printre serviciile furnizate se numara si ingrijirea pe termen scurt, sau lung,

a bolnavilor care nu isi pot parasi locuinta. LHC Group are, in prezent , 5000

de angajati in 14 state.

Pozitia a noua este ocupata de Quicksilver, companie de

exploatare a gazului natural care si-a dublat proprietatile in iulie, cand a

achizitionat 13 000 de acri de pamant in nordul

statului Texas. In aceasta zona , exista posibilitati de extragere a gazului natural in valoare de aproximativ 800 milioane dolari, anual.

Ultimul loc, in topul celor mai prolifice IMM-uri americane, ii revine Graham Corporation, cu sediul in

Batavia, New York. Compania se ocupa cu productia de pompe, condensatoare si

alte echipamente pentru industria grea, in special pentru rafinarii. Profitul Graham Corporation a crescut cu 31%

anul trecut iar restantele cu 40%. Compania

americana, cu o vechime de 72 de ani, s-a extins si pe piata chineza, in

Suzhou.
