Of the 66 companies analyzed, 52 are multinational and 14 operate through franchises.
Also according to the survey, the internationalization of the Brazilian companies grew 1.6% in 2013, the base year for the ranking. South American leads the region with the highest physical presence among multinationals, with 75.8%, followed by North America, with 66.7%, and Europe, with 54.6%. The United States and Argentina are the countries with the greatest presence of Brazilian companies.
