Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine the financial outcomes experienced by family firms as they grow internationally, an issue which has been largely overlooked in international business research. Using quantitative analysis, this study examined the effects of internationalisation on the financial performance of small-tomedium-sized family-owned enterprises (SMFEs). Results of this study suggest that SMFEs that expanded overseas had superior return on total assets, superior sales growth and superior asset growth when compared to domestic SMFEs. However, the extent to which internationally active SMFEs expanded overseas had no observable effect on financial performance. The implications of this study’s findings for FBs, policy and future research are explored in the paper.
