    Description:

    The Economic Analysis Research Paper Series provides the circulation of research conducted by the staff of National Accounts and Analytical Studies, visiting fellows and academic associates. The research paper series is meant to stimulate discussion on a range of topics including the impact of the new economy; productivity issues; firm profitability; technology usage; the effect of financing on firm growth; depreciation functions; the use of satellite accounts; savings rates; leasing; firm dynamics; hedonic estimations; diversification patterns; investment patterns; the differences in the performance of small and large, or domestic and multinational firms; and purchasing power parity estimates. Readers of the series are encouraged to contact the authors with comments, criticisms and suggestions.

    The primary distribution medium for the papers is the Internet. These papers can be downloaded from the Internet at www.statcan.gc.ca for free. Papers in the series are distributed to Statistics Canada Regional Offices and provincial statistical focal points.

    All papers in the Economic Analysis Series go through institutional and peer review to ensure that they conform to Statistics Canada's mandate as a government statistical agency and adhere to generally accepted standards of good professional practice.

    The papers in the series often include results derived from multivariate analysis or other statistical techniques. It should be recognized that the results of these analyses are subject to uncertainty in the reported estimates.

    The level of uncertainty will depend on several factors: the nature of the functional form used in the multivariate analysis; the type of econometric technique employed; the appropriateness of the statistical assumptions embedded in the model or technique; the comprehensiveness of the variables included in the analysis; and the accuracy of the data that are utilized. The peer group review process is meant to ensure that the papers in the series have followed accepted standards to minimize problems in each of these areas.

    Description:

    Although nanotechnology can be thought of as a sector of its own, it is clear that nanotechnology is a cross-sector phenomenon with potentially significant impacts. Nanotechnologies can be found in areas as diverse as biotechnology and health, agriculture, electronics and computer technology, environment and energy, optics, and in materials and manufacturing.

    Description:

    Although private investors and government funding agencies have learned that the biotechnology sector requires a funding model different from that of traditional manufacturing, there is a paucity of empirical research investigating the links between characteristics of the funding model and firm performance. The purpose of this article is to examine which funding sources have the greatest influence on firm growth.

    Description:

    Burkart and Ellingsen (2004) develop a model of trade credit and bank credit rationing which predicts that trade credit will be used by medium-wealth and low-wealth firms to help ease bank credit rationing. This paper tests this and other predictions of the Burkart and Ellingsen model using a large sample of more than 28,000 Canadian firms. The author uses an endogenous method to divide the firms into the appropriate wealth categories rather than arbitrarily selecting firms likely to be credit-rationed. The data support the main predictions of the model quite well. The author finds that medium-wealth firms substitute trade credit for bank credit consistent with using it to alleviate bank credit rationing. The low-wealth firms use trade credit but it is positively linked to bank credit, suggesting those firms are constrained in both bank credit and trade credit markets, and so cannot use trade credit to adjust as much to negative shocks. The findings also suggest that there are very few unconstrained, high-wealth Canadian firms. The author also finds low-wealth, declining and distressed firms supply proportionally more trade credit than firms with healthier balance sheets.

    Description:

    This paper looks into Canadian innovative biotechnology firms' access to financing capital. Results show that over 70% of biotech firms that attempted to raise financing capital were successful. Funds were primarily sought for R&D activities and came primarily from Canadian venture capitalists. Harsher market conditions were the main reasons put forward by investors to limit or reject biotechnology firms' funding requests.

    Description:

    The main indicators of biotechnology activities in Canada are presented in this article. The data are from the 2003 Biotechnology Use and Development Survey. Within the last few years, except for the number of employees with biotechnology-related responsibilities that remained stable, an increase in all the indicators was noticed. For example, the number of innovative firms involved in biotechnology activities rose from 375 in 2001 to 490 in 2003 and biotechnology revenues rose from $3.6 billion to $3.8 billion between 2001 and 2003. Also, biotechnology R&D spending increased by 11% between 2001 and 2003 and the amount of capital raised for biotechnology was up 73% during this period.

    In 2001, Canadian biotech firms raised $980 million in financing capital, a sharp drop from the $2.1 billion raised in 1999. Overall, 114 firms out of 188 (61%) that attempted to raise capital either failed or did not reach their targets. Why are biotech firms encountering difficulties in raising financing capital?
