Guide to foreign companies within the construction industry

Eyðfinnur Jacobsen, attorney-at-law at Faroe Law, has, together with The Danish Construction Association, authored a guide containing information for construction companies on doing business in the Faroe Islands. The guide is in Danish and is primarily intended for Danish companies, but the information is general and can be applied to most branches of industry.

The guide is merely informative and not comprehensive and cannot substitute legal advice. For specific guidance and for a copy of the guide you can contact Faroe Law.

Technology companies have become a dominant driver in recent years of economic growth, consumer tastes and the financial markets. The biggest tech stocks as a group, for example, have dramatically outpaced the broader market in the past decade.1 That’s because technology has reshaped in a major way how people communicate, consume information, shop, socialize, and work themarketingheaven.

Broadly speaking, companies in the technology sector engage in the research, development, and manufacture of technologically based goods and services. They create software, and design and manufacture computers, mobile devices, and home appliances. They also provide products and services related to information technology
Below we look at the 10 biggest technology companies measured by trailing 12-months (TTM) revenue. This list is limited to companies which are publicly traded in the U.S. or Canada, either directly or through ADRs. The one exception is Samsung, which is far too large to exclude from the list, yet unlike many large companies outside the U.S. does not have an ADR. Some foreign companies may report semiannually, and so may have longer lag times. It’s important to note that 6 of the biggest ten are U.S. companies, illustrating America’s continued dominance in technology. Two are Japanese, one is South Korean, and one is Taiwanese. None of the biggest companies are from Mainland China
