Abstract:     
This work analyses the explanatory factors of the cash holdings of a sample of 860 small and medium-sized firms from Spain during the period 1997-2001. We find that the firms pursue a target cash level to which they attempt to converge, and that this level is higher for firms with larger cash flows, for those that are more highly leveraged and for those that have more short-term debt. In contrast, the cash level falls with the use of bank debt and in the presence of substitutes for cash.
