The Export Imperative

Regus' report finds that companies operating internationally are producing better financial results than their domestic counterparts in the current economic environment.

 

Key findings include:

    • Companies operating in international markets are generally reporting better results (revenue, or profit, or both) than those concentrating on their domestic market 
    • The only exception is China, where state-sponsored infrastructure investment and development is providing disproportionate domestic market opportunity for Chinese firms 
    • These findings indicate that foreign expansion is good for business and should be considered by domestically-focused companies 
    • There is a gulf between the attitude of companies already operating internationally – where 80% intend to expand still further – and those solely operating in home markets – where only 42% intend to expand abroad over the next few years 
    • Property’ and ‘People’ are key perceived obstacles to foreign expansion
