BlackBerry is the top Canadian tech company for the fifth year in a row, according to the Branham Group. The Branham Group is a Canadian consultancy group that is exclusively focused on the technology sector. In their Branham 300 report, they name BlackBerry as their top Information and Communication Technology(ICT) business.
Branham says that BlackBerry may be in for a rough ride in 2014 as their revenue continues to drop from an already dismal 2013 in which BlackBerry saw a 40% decrease in revenue. However, according to BlackBerry CEO John Chen, he expects to be profitable in a short period of time. That however may not be soon enough to keep BlackBerry in the top spot much longer. The Branham Group does say that if BlackBerry does continue to slip, the number two company on the list, CGI Group, "is a serious contender to claim next year's number one spot."
Here is a list of the top 20 Canadian ICT Companies, shortened from the top 250 ICT Canadian Companies.
