Abstract The high divestment rates of acquired foreign units indicate challenges connected to planning and management of foreign acquisitions. In this paper we analyze the moderating effect of internal and external variables on the relationship between acquirers’ ownership strategy and survival of acquired foreign units. We test our hypotheses on a sample of 1275 acquisitions conducted by Finnish firms in various countries during the period 1980–2005. The results indicate that the probability of...

Due to their consistent successful international expansion, emerging economy firms have continually attracted the attention of international business scholars. They face them with a plethora of challenges as existing international business theories, developed overtime in the Western context, often inevitably fail to explain how emerging economy firms internationalise and what accounts for their successful foreign operations. While emerging economies were in the past seen as markets and/or provid...

Abstract While extant research has examined the separate influences of dynamic capabilities and institutions on international performance, their interactive role has received limited attention. Therefore, we examine the role of host-country institutional conditions in the relationships between emerging-market firms’ (EMFs) innovation-related dynamic capabilities and their international performance. We use multi-source secondary data and primary data from multiple informants from 254 Turkish inte...

Abstract Despite garnering an increasing amount of scholarly attention in the past three decades, the literature on foreign divestment is characterised by inconsistent theoretical arguments and mixed findings. In the present paper we review 53 articles on foreign divestment using the content analysis technique. Our aim is to compare and consolidate the main findings of the 53 articles, and provide suggestions for future research. The review suggests that there are several overlapping arguments p...

Abstract This study aims to analyze how parent control strategies affect the degree of innovation in international joint ventures (IJVs) and how different types of innovation strategies - divided into radical and incremental innovation strategies - influence the performance of IJVs. This study uses the most widely adopted definition and operationalization of control in IJVs by Geringer and Hebert (1989), including the three dimensions: mechanisms, focus, and extent of control. These relationship...

The internationalisation of firms from emerging and transition economies has become a rather debatable area of research in international business (IB). The debates are often drawn to the issue whether well-established theories in IB can offer plausible explanations of the motives and approaches used by firms from these economies when internationalising and serving foreign markets. While such firms are usually lagging behind in the scope and scale of their international activities when compared t...
