3. Smaller Companies Took A Hit
In a year that brought the big guns trouble, how did the relatively smaller players fare?
The combined total revenue of companies 401-500 is $2.9 billion. Last year, the combined total of that segment was 4.12 billion. Clearly, the recession hit smaller companies -- those ranked 401-500 have revenue between $39.7 million and $19 million -- hard. The average revenue of a VAR in the final 100 was $29.5 million in 2009, in 2008 it was $41.2 million.
Some companies are not on the list this year, largely the result of the challenging economic environment. One hundred thirty companies are new to the list this year, because of bankruptcies, mergers or acquisitions.
