but to some extent - as well

Can "to some extent" come with "as well" in the same sentence?

Please see this context:

The internal conditions of a company basically determine its actions and reactions to the market changes, but to some extent the actions and reactions are directed by external factors as well."

    It can in theory, but it sits unhappily at the end of this sentence and detracts from its strength, style and clarity, to my mind. This looks like a case for using 'also' instead.
    ...are also directed ...
