International Diversification Strategies and Performance Outcomes - A Resource Perspective

 

Everyone is welcome!

 

Abstract
We propose that knowing how much a firm has internationally diversified tells us little about performance implications, if we do not know how the firm has diversified. Therefore, we develop a theoretical framework that focuses on the extent to which a firm’s international diversification strategy is characterized by specialization versus replication. We argue that these different strategies may have differential impact on profitability and risk reduction. Drawing on a recently developed measure of international concentration and using a unique panel data set of 92 German MNEs, we provide a novel perspective on the relationship between international diversification and firm performance.
