La taille des entreprises et le compromis entre le risque et le rendement

  • Lafrance, Amelie

L'association entre la taille et le rendement des entreprises continue de susciter l'interet des chercheurs et des decideurs. Les petites et moyennes entreprises recoivent beaucoup d'attention, car elles presentent un potentiel de croissance considerable. Toutefois, comparativement aux grandes entreprises, ces entreprises sont plus susceptibles de faire faillite et comportent plus de risques. Le risque est-il important pour expliquer les differences de rentabilite selon les categories de taille d'entreprise? La presente etude utilise un ensemble de donnees longitudinales a l'echelle de l'entreprise pour examiner les determinants de la rentabilite selon la taille de l'entreprise, en s'attardant principalement au risque, c'est-a-dire a la volatilite des taux de rendement. L'etude prend appui sur la recherche anterieure, qui a revele que les entreprises comptant de 10 a 20 employes ont tendance a etre les plus rentables.
