(VF)Résumé : Cette étude analyse la relation présumée entre certaines caractéristiques d’entreprises de la nouvelle économie et de leur PDG et la proba-bilité de leur remplacement lors d’une chute de performance. Sur un échantillon de 100 entreprises du NASDAQ ayant subi une chute boursière entre mars 2000 et janvier 2003, nous mettons en évidence 55 cas de changements de PDG. Ceux-ci sont associés à la durée des fonctions du PDG, la proportion d’investisseurs institutionnels, la taille et le cumul de fonctions. (VA) This study examines the hypothesized relationship between certain characteristics of new econ-omy firms and their CEO and the decision to replace the latter following a performance decline. A sample of one hundred companies listed on the NASDAQ and showing a decline in their stock price during the bear market period from March 2000 to January 2003 brings out 55 CEO changes. The replacement decision is associated with the time a position is held, the proportion of institutional investors, the size of the firm and the number of mandates.
