We address this research gap using a longitudinal sample of 245 first-tier automotive suppliers and find that an increased systems integration capability positively affects financial performance. By considering the crucial role of manufacturing alliances, we also find eviden...

Prior international business research recognizes that networks can affect internationalization decisions, yet our understanding of how networks in the host country do so, especially with respect to establishment mode choices between greenfield and acquisition, remains nascent.

Accordingly, we integrate relevant conditions from interrelated literature streams and explore their complementarities and substitutions in relation to subsidiary product innovati...

Drawing upon the eclectic paradigm and the regulative dimension of institutional distance theory, it is posited that to understand a firms’ cross-border merger and acquisition (CBMA) location choices, it is critical to examine the acquirers’ ownership advantages.,Using a sample of CBMAs undertaken by US firms from 1999 to 2015, the paper explores the extent to which acquiring firm ownership advantages – financial and innovation capabilities – influence target firm country selection in relation t...

Abstract Real options theory is applied widely to the study of MNEs’ international expansions. This stream of research views the MNE as a network that incorporates a portfolio of options to maximize return in changing environmental conditions (Kogut & Kulatilaka, 1994). In this study, we examine whether and how flexibility benefits of multinationality influence MNEs’ ability to sustain superior performance. From a real options valuation perspective, our findings indicate that the composition of ...
