Forbes listed No. 333 NRG Energy as a New Jersey-based company; however, the company — which previously shared its headquarters between Princeton and Houston — has now made Houston its lone corporate base.
Walmart held its position on the top of the list for the ninth consecutive year, with revenues of $559 billion.
Amazon, New Jersey’s largest employer with more than 40,000 employees across the state, came in second for the second consecutive year. It had revenues of $386 billion — which far exceeded those of No. 3 Apple, which had revenues of $274 billion.
Here’s a look at the overall Top 10:
