NEW YORK - Fast-growing U.S. companies that market their products and services internationally expect higher 1992 growth rates than similar companies that concentrate on domestic markets, according to a Coopers & Lybrand survey.

Globally focused CEOs say they expect growth rates of 26.4% over the next 12 months, compared with 22.5% for the others.

Financing expansion into international markets is a do-it-yourself activity, according to Ken Alwyn, a Coopers & Lybrand partner in San Francisco. More than 90% of growth-company CEOs say they used working capital for the endeavor; 7% used funding from financial institutions and 2% from public sources.
