The 2019 Top 49ers Unmasked
The 2019 Alaska Business Top 49ers rankings are official, ironclad, etched in stone, locked in—and not a minute too soon as we can’t wait to take a closer look at the Last Frontier’s top earning, Alaskan-owned companies.

Topping the list (and there’s no need to sit down for this, it’s not surprising) is Arctic Slope Regional Corporation; what may knock you out of your easy chair (if you did sit) is that the company increased its revenue by a whopping 23 percent year over year, reporting a skyscraping $3.4 billion in revenue for 2018.

In fact, the top eight of the Top 49ers all managed (very possibly with the aid of grappling hooks and anti-gravity boots) to hold onto their rankings this year from last year.

Altogether the Top 49ers (through a shuffling of manila envelopes, coded knocks, and the endless whoosh of a network of pneumatic tubes) reported $17.2 billion in revenue for 2018, almost $2 billion more than the year previous.

In addition to the good ol’ gang, there are two new, mysterious figures on the scene for 2019: Choggiung, the village corporation for Dillingham, leapt and bounded onto the list, landing at number 33, while Keller Williams Realty Alaska Group catapulted onto the list at number 49.

Whatever master plans our Top 49ers may have, it’s clear they’re doing what they do best: leading communities, building jobs from scratch, bustin’ bank vaults (with the huge volumes of money they’re making, naturally), and topping charts.

For now, we’ve decrypted their data in the following pages for your perusing pleasure.

To our Top 49ers: Congrats—and we’re sure we’ll be seeing you again soon.
