Good morning, all. It was reported last week that private companies have been significantly outperforming their public counterparts since the recession. Large private companies (above $500 million in annual revenue) have “generated average sales growth of 13.8 percent during the past four years, compared to just 3.3 percent for public companies,” reported Graham Winfrey of Inc.
Some believe that the performance gap is due to private companies’ ability to be more nimble and respond better to the post-recession environment.
