[fre] La hiérarchie des financements des investissements des PME. . La théorie financière moderne de l'entreprise suggère l'existence d'une hiérarchie de financement de l'investissement à cause de coûts de faillite, de taxation différentielle, d'asymétrie d'information ou de relation entre l'entreprise et ses créanciers. Dans cette étude, nous tentons de vérifier l'existence d'une hiérarchie de financement au niveau des investissements des petites et moyennes entreprises françaises au moyen de données individuelles sur la période 1990-1992.. Les résultats de l'analyse descriptive de l'échantillon montrent que l'autofinan­cement reste la source préférée de financement, suivie par l'endettement et enfin les apports externes. On peut noter que plus l'entreprise investit, plus elle a recours à du financement externe après avoir épuisé les sources internes. Nous présentons également les résultats d'estimations économétriques des déterminants des sources de financement des entreprises qui confirment l'existence d'une structure de financement particulière des petites et moyennes entreprises.

We can note that the more the firm invests the more it finances externally, after drying out the internal sources of finance. We also present the results of econometric estimations which confirm the existence of a p
