Walt Disney ranks 66th among America's largest public corporations and 9th among California's publicly-owned companies.

Northrop Grumman, founded in Hawthorne in 1939 and long one of the top publicly-owned companies
based in Los Angeles County, moved their headquarters from Los Angeles to Falls Church, Virgina, in 2011.

Mattel, Inc. is the world’s largest toy maker, followed by HASBRO Inc. There are more Barbie Dolls, Mattel’s
most successful product, in the United States than there are people.  The name Mattel was derived from combining
the first names of partners Elliot Handler and "Matt" Matson. Ruth Handler, wife of Elliot, co-founder of the company
and creator of the Barbie Doll, did not contribute her first name to the company name due to "the times."

Hilton Hotels, an $8 billion company that had been headquartered in Beverly Hills since 1969, moved to in 2009 to
Virginia. A year later, Computer Sciences Corporation, a $15 billion company, founded and headquartered in
California since 1959, also moved to Virginia.

IndyMac Bank, owned by parent IndyMac Bancorp of Pasadena, collapsed in July 2008, becoming the fourth
largest bank failure in U.S. history and the second largest failure of a regulated thrift. IndyMac Bancorp filed for
bankruptcy. OneWestBank formed in 2009 from the remains of the failed bank.

DaVita Inc., a $5.7 billion health care company and the largest kidney dialysis/care companies in the nation, moved
its corporate headquarters in 2009 from El Segundo to Denver, Colorado.
