Trust Across America has moved Lexmark up on its list of America’s Most Trustworthy Public Companies.

This year Lexmark jumped from No. 9 to No. 5 on the list of the top 10 companies.

To compile the list, Trust Across America conducted a five-year study (2010-2014) of more than 2,000 U.S.-based public companies, looking at five key quantitative indicators of trustworthy business, called FACTS®:

Financial stability

Accounting conservativeness

Corporate integrity

Transparency

Sustainability

This is Trust Across America’s fifth annual study and the fourth time Lexmark has made the list.

Companies are not nominated, nor do they participate in the analysis. The research independently identifies those with the highest scores in all five FACTS® indicators of trustworthy business. Trust Across America said only four points on a 100-point scale separate the top 10 companies.

“Our company was founded on trust, cooperation and mutual respect, and that vision remains as true today as it was 24 years ago,” said Paul Rooke, chairman and CEO. “We are proud to again be recognized as one of America’s most trustworthy public companies.”
