Apple and Google once again check in at the top of Brand Finance’s list of the world’s most valuable tech companies. The list of 100 brands, which is gathered on an annual basis, features the same top 10 tech firms as last year, though there was some movement up and down the list—with the exception of those top two spots.
Let’s not gloss over the top spots, though. According to Brand Finance, the most valuable tech company in the world, Apple, defied all of the reports and predictions that it would plateau or experience a decline in value. The Cupertino-based company, in fact, saw its value increase 14 percent over 2015 (to $145.9 billion) after pulling in record-setting revenue of $75.3 billion over the last three months of 2015.
Google checks in at number two with a 2016 brand valuation of around $94.2 billion—more than $50 billion less than Apple’s valuation, but a more-impressive 23 percent gain over 2015.
