Founded in 1962 by Sam Walton, Walmart has grown to become the largest company in the world (by revenue) and is the single largest private employer in the world with an amazing 2 million employees (and counting!).
Walmart started from humble beginnings but has now grown to over 11,000 stores worldwide.
While Walmart has been listed on the NYSE since 1972, in fact the Walton family themselves control over 50% of the company. Sam Walton’s legacy has left his descendants very wealthy; Four Waltons appear on the Forbes list of wealthiest people. With an aggregate net worth of about $150 billion USD.
Due in large part to her shares in Walmart, Christy Walton has now become the richest woman in the world. Her estimated net worth of almost $38 billion dollars puts her firmly in #8 spot overall of the richest people in the world. In dividends alone from Walmart, Christy will make an estimated $470 million dollars in 2014 alone.
With revenue of almost half a trillion dollars and net income of 16 billion dollars, it is hard to argue with the success Walmart has obtained.
