Firm growth and profitability, emerging markets, panel data


Currently emerging economies, especially Brazil, are providing more business opportunities globally in terms of higher growth rates and corporate profitability. In this context, the aim of this paper is to analyze the relationship between firm growth and profitability for a panel of 1246 firms with their activity in Brazil during the 2002-2012 period. The methodology we employ consists of a static test using least squared with fixed effects, and a dynamic test using the generalized method of moments. Our results indicate the existence of a clear influence of profitability on firm growth, but not vice versa, and that the sign of this relationship differs if we distinguish according to ownership and control of companies. These results can be used by managers who wish to make their business activities in Brazil or by the public authorities to pursue economic and social development policies
