Forest Interactive Recognized as High-Growth Companies in Asia-Pacific 2020 by The Financial Times


A total of 500 companies from across the Asia-Pacific was ranked with the technology sector dominating about a quarter of the ranking list, followed by industrial goods and health.

Kuala Lumpur – Forest Interactive has been grabbing headlines recently by being listed in FT 500 High-Growth Companies Asia-Pacific 2020. The list compiled by Statista, on behalf of The Financial Times, was audited and ranked by compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in revenues between 2015 and 2018.

The company has achieved total revenue growth of 39.8% and 11.8% year-over-year between 2015 and 2018. The Financial Times and Statista have also evaluated the capabilities of over 50 million registered businesses from 12 countries in the region, shortlisting only 500 companies that have demonstrated sustainability, credibility, and substance between this short period.

“We’re honoured to be distinguished once again as a company with standout growth in the Asia-Pacific region. This prestigious recognition is a testament to our vision and values to bridge the gap in the mobile ecosystem by providing scalable, telco-driven platforms and solutions,” said Forest Interactive CEO Johary Mustapha.

The list came at a time when the world is struggling to survive the effects of COVID-19. The extensive data in the list, however, should give investors an insight of promising high-growth businesses that are likely to thrive the unprecedented crisis over the next couple of years. The Financial Times, in its news report, also stated that these companies have the potential to serve as catalysts for innovation and strengthen their positions in their respective markets.
