Abstrakt
Tło badań. Badania z zakresu biznesu międzynarodowego skupiają się na wzroście firmy. Proces umiędzynarodowienia nie jest jednak linearny i nie zawsze przebiega "w przód". W ostatnim czasie w literaturze zwraca się uwagę na konieczność lepszego zrozumienia zjawiska dezinternacjonalizacji.
Cel badań. Celem artykułu jest zbadanie organizacyjnych uwarunkowań decyzji o wycofaniu się z eksportu, podejmowanych przez małe i średnie przedsiębiorstwa.
Metodologia. W badaniu zastosowano analizę regresji logistycznej, przeprowadzonej na próbie 4105 małych i średnich przedsiębiorstw z 28 krajów należących do Unii Europejskiej.
Kluczowe wnioski. Wysokie postrzegane bariery umiędzynarodowienia są pozytywnie związane z prawdopodobieństwem wycofania się z eksportu. Prawdopodobieństwo wycofania się z eksportu spada wraz z wielkością i wynikami finansowymi firmy. (abstrakt oryginalny)

Background. Although international business literature is focused on growth, the process of internationalisation is non-linear and not necessarily "forward-moving." Recently, there have been numerous calls for studies that would increase the understanding of the phenomenon of "de-internationalisation."
Research aims. This study investigates the firm-specific determinants of the SMEs' decisions to withdraw from export activity.
Methodology. Logistic regression analysis was used to examine the sample of 4105 independent SMEs from EU-28.
Key findings. High perceived barriers to internationalisation increase the likelihood of export withdrawal, while firm size and firm performance decrease the likelihood of export withdrawal. (original abstract)
