1. Comparing firm performance on the basis of age, size, leverage, and group affiliation in Indian IT industry
Rezumat:Size has positive impact on firm performance (Penrose 1959). The bigger is the size of the firm the more difficult is to manage and has negative impact on performance of firm (Banz 1981, Singh & Whittington 1968). Life cycle theory states that older the firm the more it is rigid to any change and hence negative impact on firm’s performance. Myers (1984) argued that firms should go for debt to raise funds and equity is less preferred means to raise funds. Group affiliation firms are always been a central issue as far as firm performance is considered. This study is an attempt to answer these questions for Indian IT industry. The study is conducted on two different years 2001 and 2008. It is found from results that older the firm better is the performance, large firms outperformed small firms, group affiliated firms performed better than unaffiliated firms, and less leveraged firms were better than highly leveraged firms.
