Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


This study focuses on intra-industry determinants of acquisition performance. Seven years of printed research on acquisitions from 10 top-tier business journals is categorized on the basis of R & D intensity - that is, per industry classification: high-, medium-, and low-technology - and determinants of acquisition performance. Instead of broadly generalizing acquisition performance determinants across industries, this study focuses on how the practice of enhancing acquisition performance is different per industry classification and what acquiring firms need to take into account.
