100 Oldest Companies on the ASX

While the ASX was formed in 1987, some of the companies go all the way back to 1885. Displayed is the top 100 companies with earliest founding dates.
Note: Some of the companies have a 'founding date' while others have a 'listing date', so the table is not 100% comprehensive, but is generally correct.
