Deciding Between Acquisition and Joint Venture: Intangible Resources and Similarity

The aim of this paper is to analyze the influence of intangible assets and similarity of resources on the choice between acquisitions and joint ventures and whether it is different in domestic and European operations. In order to test these relations, a sample of domestic and European growth deals was selected (563 deals, of which 449 are acquisitions and 114 are joint ventures). Results demonstrate that it is more probable that firms will choose acquisitions if there is a close similarity between the resources of the firms. Also, if the operation is domestic, companies with higher proportions of intangible resources prefer acquisitions. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Management Research: The Journal of the Iberoamerican Academy of Management Emerald Publishing
