How to Participate

How we select the Top100

In order to qualify for the Top 100 Mid-Sized Companies, a company must meet the following criteria:

  • Should have a four-year average turnover of TZS 1 billion–TZS 20billion.  The years under review in this survey will be 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021.
  • If a company has participated in the Top100 competition before and has had a turnover of over TZS 20 billion in any of the years in review, they are eligible for consideration to join club101. Please note that a company should not participate if they have been recognised as a Club 101 company before.
  • Should not be listed in the Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange.
  • Banks, professional services firms (such as law, accounting, and audit firms), SACCOS, and insurance companies are excluded from participation.

The Top 100 Mid-Sized Companies are selected from all participating companies on the basis of their revenue growth over the past three years, profits, liquidity and other measures of financial solidity.
