In order to provide business leaders and companies with a up-to-the-minute
barometer of their peers’ confidence and outlook for the coming year the Regus
Business Confidence Index Report analysed the opinions of over 16,000 business
managers and business owners from 86 countries. In addition to enquiring about
revenues and profits over the past year, and about their revenue expectations for
the next 12 months, the report also analysed their views on factors that had caused
particular corporate distress during the downturn, stability creating policies for future
growth and cost saving measures that do not hinder company growth.
