term or phrase: to be in the tie for
XX Company is in a virtual tie for the top revenue position in the total
XX product market
Carmen Barrero
English translation:l'entreprise XX est quasiment première ex aequo pour/en ce qui concerne les recettes ...
Explanation:
l'entreprise XX est (classée) première ex aequo pour/en ce qui concerne les recettes ...
to be in the tie for first/second place = être (classé) premier/second ex aequo

since we have : "top revenue position", I' ve translated "première ex aequo"
It means that another company has reached the same position in the market, and is probably a little ahead of this one ("virtual" tie for this one)

"a virtual tie" = quasiment (= presque)

Bon courage !
