Find value from column X corresponding the max value in column y

I have a small problem that I cant solve in efficient way. I want to create a new column "lastDatesales" which has "sum of sales "corresponding to the last purchase dates sales a company has. For example, company "a":s last purchase date was 10.1.2019, so I want to get the corresponding sales from that date to each row the company has.

My current solution is: 

lastDatesales = maxx(filter(Sheet1;Sheet1[company]=earlier(Sheet1[company]));if(Sheet1[date]=maxx(filter(Sheet1;Sheet1[company]=earlier(Sheet1[company]));Sheet1[date]);Sheet1[sales];0))

 

datesalescompanylastDatesales (correct answer)
1.1.2019100a200
10.1.2019200a200
1.1.2018300b600
15.1.2018600b600

Hi @user555 

Modify az38's solution as below, then it can use to create a column

 

lastDatesales = 
var _lastDate = calculate(MAX(Sheet1[date]),ALLEXCEPT(Sheet1,Sheet1[company]))
return
LOOKUPVALUE(Sheet1[sales],Sheet1[company],Sheet1[company],Sheet1[date],_lastDate)

Measure may perform quicker than column.

Check the performance under View->Performance Analyzer.
