Abstract: The authors found that contracting‐only firms were more vunerable in cases of inaccurate budgets; fluctuations in working capital could lead to the bankruptcy of a contractor who could not raise loans quickly. Two reasons were identified as the cause of inaccurate budgets: forecasting on an overall basis and the inability to take into account accurately variations in strategies and the environment.
