Hurun Report India and Burgundy Private launched a further analysis of most valuable non-state-controlled companies from Karnataka in the 2022 Burgundy Private Hurun India 500 List. The cut-off date to arrive at this list was 30th October 2022.

The top line of these 500 companies is equivalent to 29% of India’s GDP, and these companies employ up to 1.5% of the country’s total workforce.

Valuing private companies is as much an art as it is a science. Surely, Hurun India may have missed some
companies, but our endeavor is to develop the most comprehensive report of its kind with an objective to
identify and acknowledge India’s top businesses. Hurun Report’s team of researchers have traveled the length and breadth of the country, cross-checking information with entrepreneurs, industry experts, journalists, bankers and other sources of publicly available data.
For unlisted companies, Hurun Research’s valuation is based on a comparison with their listed equivalents
using prevailing industry multiples such as Price to Earnings, Price to Sales, EV to sales, EV to EBITDA. Other methodologies such as Discounted Cash Flow and Tobin’s Q are also used. In certain cases of early- stage companies, Hurun used the First Chicago Method for valuation. Financial information used is from the latest available annual reports or audited financial statements.
