Abstract

This paper uses data from firm level surveys to investigate firm performance for state-owned, privatized and de novo private firms in Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary. After controlling for life-cycle, size and product market effects I find that de novo private firms outperform privatized and state-owned ones.
