This theoretical outline relates exporting results with the main factors identified. After that, hypothesis are formulated from those factors and questions that the research suggests. Immediately, the research field was shown along with the enterprise selection criteria and the resulting sample. The sample was composed by 164 companies (from a total of 640).

Finally, in the third part, there is an analysis about the variables utilized before and their effect on the exporting intensity of the company. In this sense, the main statistical tool used for the data processing was the linear regression, complemented with factorial analysis to see effect of the mentioned variables on the exporting intensity.
