Largest Maryland Companies Outside the Washington Area

Monday, May 1, 2006

Constellation Energy Group Inc., parent of Baltimore Gas and Electric Co., made headlines of several sorts in recent months. It agreed to be bought by FPL Group Inc. of Florida in an $11 billion deal that's pending. And it announced rate increases of up to 72 percent for BGE customers, which caused an uproar that shook up Maryland state government. Toolmaker Black & Decker Corp. reported a 21 percent increase in sales, much of it from acquisitions made in 2004. Legg Mason Inc. dramatically reshaped itself, swapping its stock-brokerage business for Citigroup Inc.'s mutual fund business in a $3.7 billion deal.
