This places DCSL among the more successful smaller public companies in Asia and the Pacific. It must be mentioned that this list is compiled after evaluating over 24,000 small and medium publicly listed enterprises with sales under US$1 billion in Asia and the Pacific, including Australia, Japan, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

The calculations were based on the weighted results of growth rate, return on equity rate and profitability of the enterprises.
