The paper presents the results of an empiric research conducted between March and April 2014 on a sample of 1569 SMEs and offers a broad view of the Romanian SMEs performances in 2013 and 2014. The analysis was conducted by questioning a sample of 1569 companies – micro, small and medium sized – from all fields of business activity, age categories and development regions, sample considered representative for the objectives of the study and for the situation of Romanian SMEs sector. The conclusion of the study is that, although a number of significant changes have taken place within the macro-economic environment, approximately the same dynamics of performances is found in the SME sector, due to the fact that the current results of companies are usually conditioned by the achievements from the previous periods of time.
