PwC can't resist dig at Deloitte as it retakes number one slot

NICE TO SEE PwC resisting putting the boot in after retaking its position as the largest global firm by revenues.

In a Q&A provided to journalists today, which is in no way an attempt to save hacks from having to come up with their own questions, PwC asks: “Is PwC again the world’s largest professional services organisation?”

The answer…? “Yes.”

More interesting was PwC’s description of last year’s results, where Deloitte pipped the firm to number one spot by a mere $9m.

“However, because of the slim margin, fluctuations in foreign currencies and how the organisations report their revenues, the difference in total global gross was difficult to determine accurately. This year, given the US$400m difference in reported revenues, the ranking is clear cut.”

In other words, ‘last year we might have been number one anyway, this year there’s no doubt’.

Ouch – put the claws away guys.
