中文摘要 台灣由於小經濟規模的限制,不易變成大公司或者成為全球產業的龍頭,唯一能打破這項限制的方法即是鼓勵以出口為導向的產業,把全世界當成是市場,這樣的營業行態在台灣的高科技業證明是成功的。我們這篇論文的主要目的是調查台灣生技業能否拷貝IT產業的商業模式,引領台灣經濟成長,經由分析公司國際化和公司表現之間的關係,以國外銷售和國外資產來評估公司國際化的程度,而用資產報酬率和股東權益報酬率代表公司的表現,另公司大小,銷售成長,財務槓桿作用和效率以及研發費用也是影響公司表現的主要因素,所以把他們放入我們線性迴歸和非線性迴歸的實驗中,分別檢視其影響。我們所選的資料是來自台灣上市上櫃的化學生技醫藥產業的公司,總數量有80家公司,研究時間是從2004到2008共5年。
英文摘要 In Taiwan, firms with small economic scale limitation do not easily grow big or become leaders of the global industry. The way to break this obstacle is to encourage export-oriented business by considering the whole world as the market. The strategy was proved to be successfully with Taiwan IT industry. The object of this study is to see if Taiwan bio-industry can replicate the business pattern of IT-industry to lead Taiwan’s economic growth through analyzing the correlation of internationalization and firm performance. The parameters for Internationalization degree are the foreign sales and assets as well as ROA and ROE for firm performance. As firm size, sales growth, leverage, efficiency and R&D expenditure are also the determinate factors to impact on firms’ performance, all are adopted in our linear and non-linear regression test to see their effects separately. Data is from Taiwan stock market, “Chemical, Biotechnology and Medical Care Industry,” and included a total of 80 companies over a 5 year period from 2004 to 2008.
The findings show the higher the internationalization, the higher the firm’s performance, but it was also found that firm performance decreased in the beginning, which fit to the U-shape theory. Firm performance turns positive with company size and efficiency, but negative with leverage, R&D expenditure and sales growth. There was no special correlation over 5 years, but the performance of 2008 was the worst, because of the USA Sub-prime loan crisis which resulted in a global economic recession, Taiwan industry was also hurt by this crisis.
