Wal-Mart remained at No. 1 on the Fortune 500 this year and toppled Royal Dutch Shell to grab the Global 500 top spot.
The retailer has ramped up its international focus. With Doug McMillon’s start as CEO in 2014, the company has underscored its desire to expand further overseas. Prior to taking the helm, McMillon headed Wal-Mart International from February 2009 to February 2014.
As a whole, Wal-Mart serves more than 100 million customers in 26 countries per week. In fact, the company said that net sales overseas, which accounts for more than 6,000 stores, climbed 4.6% to $140.9 billion from 2013.
