Criteria[edit]

What is the criteria for listing companies here? -- Barrylb 09:37, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Since it seems there are no criteria, I suggest, as a rule of thumb to get going, "companies that are listed on the Australian stock exchange." probably there are companies that are not listed on the ASX that clearly should be on such a list... let's wait until such a situation comes up, then we can revise the rule.Callivert (talk) 00:38, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Hello could you please advise me why Han's Cafe has not been included on your list?

thankyou... Fabian

um, why do you think Han's Cafe should be included? I've never heard of it.Callivert (talk) 00:38, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I would like to suggest the company TR Corporation Pty Ltd in the list. For reference you could access the company's official website: http://www.trcorporation.com. Thank you. Chermint (talk) 07:13, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

I don't suggest only listing public companies - that should be a unique list.125.255.85.74 (talk) 22:24, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Only public companies leaves out many notable firms. ASX listings does not really mean a company is notable or that it is HQed in Australia. I would propose using the methodology used on most other country/company listings: simply that an article for the firm exists on wikipedia (that is, has established notability). I'd also remove several of the unused columns (market cap, etc) that change daily - there's no way to keep up with these and they only have meaning in corporate structures.

With no responses or objections in nine months, I'm going to start cleaning up this article per the above proposal. Kuru (talk) 18:28, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

Ownership?[edit]

I suggest listing what percentage of Australian ownership each company has, or at least if it is mainly "Australian owned" (rather than just being listed on the ASX). LachlanA (talk) 06:52, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
