The Trinity Horne TFP Index© ranks FTSE 100 companies by their operational efficiency

London, July 12th 2007. Trinity Horne, the London based transformer of business performance, has teamed up with Israel based former MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Visiting Professor Shlomo Maital to produce the UK’s first and annual Total Factor Productivity (TFP) Index.

The index ranks the FTSE 100 companies by their operational efficiency. (For the results of the complete FT100 index - as well as selected individual sector analysis - see the 'The Index' link at

Index highlights:

• Overall Index grew by 5.7% in the last year
• Turnover of FTSE 100 companies grew by £109b (10%) while number of employees increased just 103K (2%)
• 40 of the companies listed failed to achieve the 5.7% average growth
• 80 within the FTSE 100 experienced productivity improvement last year
• 15 companies in the FT100 had productivity gains of more than 28%

Trinity Horne ( is launching the index to create awareness of the importance of productivity improvement within UK business. Shortly, Trinity Horne will launch its TFP Analysis Methodology which will allow companies to better understand the drivers of productivity - not just at corporate level, but within their business.

Says Trinity Horne CEO Brendan Cahill: “Over time, the index will become invaluable, providing a consistent record of how companies are performing compared to their peers, both inside and outside sector. It is the ultimate benchmarking yardstick. Successful companies will be those that grow revenues without incremental increases in either labour or capital and the TFP Index will clearly demonstrate this. If a company was already highly productive, then its potential for further improvement may be minimal and this can account for a low score.”

Professor Maital comments: “Productivity gains are desirable. The alternative to not making them is almost unthinkable in today’s very competitive environment. The challenge is double edged - to gain productivity improvements and sustain them; both can be achieved.”

The Top 15 Companies:

1 Kazakhymys PLC
2 Resolution PLC
3 Lloyds TSB Group PLC
4 Vedanta Resources
5 Lonmin PLC
6 Liberty International PLC
7 Alliance Boots PLC
8 Antofagasta PLC
