Moreover, the growth rates of these companies have increased 9 times since last year. Our company formation consultants in Italy can help you start a small business in this country.
During the last year, SMEs in Italy have managed to outgrow average companies in their sectors of activity. This performance is due to the higher number of exports and reinvestment of the profits these companies made.
According to the magazine that issued the report, there are 522 companies which are now registering a 9-time higher growth rate when related to the production. The same Italian businesses are expected to triple their economic results in the next 5 years.
Back to what has brought success to these businesses, exports played quite an important role as 48% of the income SMEs registered was generated by exports. The same export numbers are expected to follow a steady growth in the next 3 years. When it comes to the reinvestment of profits, the survey shows the companies chose to focus on innovation and in the implementation of new industrial equipment. While 4% was dedicated to research and development programs, 80% was reinvested in industrial processes.
