There has been software around for a long time that will choose nice intervals for graphs. In its favour at least the lower limit is 0. I think very much they need to ask "do we need the current revenue at all?". Probably not, but an option is to put it in the legend e.g. Company (2017 revenue $B) That is something a machine won't think of. Maybe it isn't the best but it would be better.
