Geographic Roll-Up Acquisition Programs and Their Performance Implication

Item Type Book Section
Abstract

The authors extend the existing research on acquisition programs by identifying four types of acquisition programs that we call: cautious approach, political approach, investment-intensive approach, and hybrid approach. The authors also provide a finer-grained distinction between various characteristics of these acquisition programs. Furthermore, when examining the performance of different types of acquisition programs, the authors found that an acquisition program has to be designed in a way that not only fits to the current environmental conditions in the host country, but also takes into account an acquirer’s acquisition capabilities and resources.
