The Bulgarian Energy Holding is the biggest among them and takes the 25th position in the chart. The greatest number of companies in Top 500 come from Poland, the total of 168. Among Bulgarian ones there is strong presence from the sectors of energy and fuels. The total revenues of the 18 Bulgarian companies though have shrunk by 7.07% to 16.7 billion euro, and their profits have declined by 8.71% to 287 million euro. Decline is explained with the low prices of fuels and metals.
