The Link between Company Competitiveness and Financial Performance


  • Gruian Claudiu-Marian

    () (West University of Timisoara Faculty of Economics and Business Administration)


Company competitiveness and financial performance are two terms often used in literature but they usually appear distinctly and the relationship between them is not examined. This article provides a reasonable clarification regarding the concept of company competitiveness and theoretically argues for the positive influence it has on financial performance. Theoretical arguments are supported by an empirical investigation based on a linear regression model applied to a sample of 62 non-financial companies listed at Bucharest Stock Exchange. Results confirm the proposed hypothesis, showing that the two variables are positively correlated.
