Top tech companies in South Africa

The Sunday Times has released its Top 100 Companies list, which tracks the best-performing businesses on the JSE – recognising those with the highest shareholder returns over the past five years.

The share-price performance of every company listed on the JSE is calculated on the basis of R10,000 invested over five years – from October 1 2010 to the end of September 2015.

The winner is the company that earns the most for its shareholders in terms of share-price growth, after taking into account normal and special dividends and bonus shares reinvested.
