This paper provides estimates of negative binomial regressions for high-leveraged and non-high-leveraged exporting firms in Sweden over a business cycle that contains two boom periods and two recession periods. The contemporaneous cash flow coefficients are positive and statistically significantly associated with patent applications for non-high-equity firms in recession periods when all exporters are considered. No corresponding correlation is found among persistent exporters. Taking the firms’ geographical location into account, we find a significant difference in cash flow sensitivity between firms in metropolitan areas and firms located in other places.
