This study examines experience conditions under which firms may or may not learn effectively from prior failures. Drawing on the literature on learning from failure, we argue that the characteristics of failed investments, such as location, ownership, size, and the timing of when failed investments take place influence the effectiveness of learning from failure experience. Using a longitudinal dataset of Korean foreign direct investments, we find a negative relationship between an multinational ...

Although the importance of cross-country cultural distance is widely acknowledged in the international business literature, we have limited understanding about how culture distance at different levels influences multinational corporations’ (MNCs’) subsidiary management. This paper contributes to culture-related research by stressing cultural differences at the sub-national level by examining how cultural distances at both the within- and cross-country levels simultaneously influence headquarters...

This study investigates the effect of horizontal acquisitions on target firms in China’s context. We examine how competitive and organizational similarity jointly affect cost savings, revenue growth and profitability improvement at the target in horizontal acquisitions. Using a dataset containing information on acquired firms in China’s beer industry, we find that the way in which competitive similarity impacts on cost savings at the target depends on organizational similarity and the type of co...

This article examines how interorganizational factors in two-party international joint ventures (IJVs) affect subsequent IJV ownership changes. It specifically examines the primary impact of IJV performance and the moderating impacts of initial ownership structures, and duration. Utilizing a data set of Korean foreign direct investment, the authors find that the ownership structures of IJVs with lower performance are more likely to change. The authors also find that unbalanced ownership promotes...

INTRODUCTIONFirms use international joint ventures (IJVs) for the purpose of technology/resource exploitation or exploration, economies of scale or scope, market adaptation, or risk diversification (Cuypers & Martin, 2010; Hennart, 1988; Parkhe, 1991; Hill & Hellriegel, 1994; Hitt, Dacin, Levitas, Arregle & Borza, 2000; Inkpen & Beamish, 1997; Tong, Reuer & Peng, 2008). Alternatively, IJVs carry managerial costs caused by complexities and challenges associated with joint investments, coordinatio...

This study investigates acquisition antecedents during China's transition from a planned to a market-based economic system. Because of contextual realities such as a lack of freely tradable targets for buyers, the seller's willingness to sell is critical for acquisition occurrence in transition economies. We therefore take the seller's perspective and examine factors underlying firms' willingness to sell. We posit that selling is a decision based on the evaluation of a firm's prospects determine...

In a departure from prior studies presuming a beneficial experience effect in foreign direct investment (FDI), the present paper examines the conditions under which FDI experience may actually harm subsequent subsidiaries. We argue that multinational enterprises (MNEs) may draw erroneous inferences and learn incorrectly from their early expansions when new to a dissimilar culture, because their learning abilities are eroded by cultural differences. We posit that the characteristics of an MNE's i...
