The financial position and funding of French non-financial corporations


  • G. Cette.
  • J.-P. Villetelle.


This study, based on recent company statistics from national accounts and financial statements, shows a deterioration in the financial position of French non-financial corporations. This is affecting their performances and is prompting them to diversify their sources of funding in order to rationalise their financial structure.
