In light of Wednesday’s grand opening of a Walmart in downtown Honolulu — the 10th location in Hawaii — here’s something to figure into the megastore’s success:

Based on revenue, Walmart is the world’s largest company, according to Fortune magazine’s Global 500 list.

Walmart earned $476 billion this year.

Apple and Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway diversified company are also among the top 20.

On another note, China now has 95 companies on the top 500 list, compared to the U.S.’ 128 representatives.
