Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats har baserats på företagslivscykelmodellen och ska undersöka ålderns påverkan på företagens prestanda, storlek och soliditet och även vilken relation storleken har till prestanda. Med paneldata tagen från svenska SME-konsultföretag mellan åren 2009-2013 har vi analyserat företagsprestanda utifrån olika ålderssteg. Vi fann bevis på att ålder har en signifikant positiv påverkan på storleken och soliditeten hos företagen samt en negativ påverkan på prestanda. Vidare fann vi även bevis på att storleken kan ha en negativ eller positiv påverkan på prestanda beroende på vilket storleksmått som används, omsättning har en positiv påverkan på lönsamheten och antalet anställda orsakar en minskning i tillväxt och lönsamhet. Distinkta steg från livscykelmodellen har även visat sig i den undersökta populationen.

Abstract [en]

This paper is based on the business lifecycle model and will investigate the age effect on corporate performance, size and equity ratio and also what relationship the size has to performance. With panel data taken from the Swedish SME consulting firms between the years 2009-2013, we have analyzed the business performance based on different age stages. We found evidence that age has a significant positive effect on the size and equity ratio of businesses and a negative impact on performance. Furthermore, we also found evidence thatthe size can have a negative or positive effect on performance depending on the size measure used, total sales has a positive impact on profitability and number of employees causes a decrease in both growth and profitability. Distinct stages of the life cycle model has also been found in the population studied.
