The Web site online financial reports of all Growth Enterprise Market (GEM) companies in 2001 were evaluated for three performance indicators such as profit margin, return on asset, and return on equity. To determine the effectiveness of all e-strategies, data on the extent of their implementation was regressed with e-commerce (EC) company performance data for a correlation analysis.
