Keywords: financial performance | organizational culture | innovation | corporate social responsibility | knowledge spillovers

Company performance varies among economic sectors, countries and regions. It is influenced by a very large number of factors. This study aims at identifying and analyzing the determinants that must be considered by company's management presently in order to face competition and achieve superior financial performance. The research methodology used is specific for the theoretic nature of the article and includes literature review, comparative analysis and synthesis. Results validate and argue as relevant modern factors that influence the performance of contemporary companies: organizational culture, corporate social responsibility, innovation, knowledge spillovers. Study limits refer to the fact that these four factors are not entirely responsible for modern business performance and future research should be done to develop an integrative point of view on overall performance determinants. This paper is a dissemination of the results obtained by the author in the doctoral program The financial performance of EU member states companies, coordinator: Professor Carmen Corduneanu, PhD, carried out within West University of Timisoara, Romania, in the period October 2010- July 2012.
