Abstract

Export profiles are combinations of objectives characteristics associated with exporting or with not exporting. This note presents empirically derived exporters profiles and evidence regarding their correspondence with firms' actual export behavior. An exploratory path model of export behavior is developed also from the profile data.© 1979 JIBS. Journal of International Business Studies (1979) 10, 91–104
