The lower limit in terms of revenues has been determined empirically, so as to exclude documents for companies that are too small, whose accounts tend to omit a signi¿cant share of their activity (undeclared), and to include those whose organization shows a degree of sophistication. The upper revenue limit has been selected to prevent companies being labelled medium-sized which in fact tend to be more commercial than manufacturing in nature (with high turnover and low staff levels). In our view, the revenue levels provided in the EU regulations currently in force are too low (between €10m and €50m).

The latter increased more slowly than the former, which is due, as well as to the dif¿culties arising from the market stagnation, to reorganization of the ¿OLqUH structure which in some cases has led to relocating production. This structural change has caused a decrease in inhouse production levels but not in turnover, which has grown faster than value added. Recent trends in the globalization of these companies suggest a shift in the organization of ¿OLqUH relations. Based on the responses to the sample survey conducted by Mediobanca and Unioncamere in 2012, 31% of 28 G.

The medium-sized ¿rms recorded margins as a percentage of sales which are similar in size to those posted by the medium-large companies, and higher than those of the non-Italian and larger groups, but far below those of the European multinationals (again not including the oil companies), among which the highest margins were recorded in the chemical and pharmaceutical, food and drink and construc- 440 MI > 75% 387 MI 61-74% 593 MI 41-60% Export 708 MI 16-40% 565 MI < 15% 527 MI ZERO EXPORT Sales in Italy Fig.
