Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises Growth Study: Actual vs. Sustainable Growth, March 2013

The small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) growth study seeks to identify any misalignment between SME actual growth rates and sustainable growth rates. Using the Higgins Sustainable Growth Model, the analysis reveals that, over the 2000–2010 period, Canadian SMEs had the financial infrastructure in place and normal earnings capacity to support a rate of growth in sales of approximately 7.3 percent per year without the need to raise additional financing.
