본 연구는 우리나라 코스닥 제약회사를 대상으로 내 외부금융이 연구개발투자(R&D)에 미치는 영향을 분석하였다. 실증분석을 위한 표본은 2009년부터 2013년까지 상장된 기업들 중 코스닥 제약회사를 대상으로 하였으며 사용된 전체 표본은 5개년 자료로써 212개 관측치를 가진 불균형패널자료이다. 본 연구에 사용된 주요 변수들 중 개별기업 별 재무자료는 상장회사 협의회의 TS-2000, 금융감독원 전자공시 시스템의 각 기업 사업보고서, NICE신용평가정보의 KISVALUE-III 등의 자료를 통해 직접 수집하였으며, 패널분석을 위해 STATA 12.0을 사용하였다. 연구결과, 첫째 내부금융(유동비율)은 연구개발투자에 긍정적인 영향을 미쳤다. 둘째, 외부금융(부채비율)은 연구개발투자에 부정적인 영향을 미쳤다. 본 연구는 자본시장에서 정보의 비대칭으로 인해 외부금융보다 내부금융이 더 선호됨을 알 수 있다. 즉, 제약기업의 연구개발투자 활성화를 위해 내부금융의 관리 및 정부의 정책적 지원이 필요함을 보여준다.
