JOHANNESBURG - Capitec Bank has come out on top in the 2018 Sunday Times Top 100 Companies, announced in Johannesburg on Thursday.

The top award was based on the Capitec share's performance on the JSE over the past five years.

It opened at R180,000 per share in 2013 and closed above R1,000 per share at the end of August this year.

That's annual compound growth of 42,65 percent.

The lifetime achievement award went to Adrian Gore, who successfully launched Discovery as a healthcare provider in 1992 and diversified it into the multinational financial services group that it is today.

The rest of the winners will be published in this week's Sunday Times.
