Integration risk in cross-border M&A based on internal and external resource: empirical evidence from China

Integration risk in cross-border M&A based on internal and external resource: empirical evidence... This paper concerns the high failure rate during the integration phase of cross-border M&A from the resource-based view. This integration risk in cross-border M&A comes from both firm’s internal resource and external resource integration. On this basis, we clearly analyze the relationship between resource similarity and firm’s internal resources integration risk, as well as resource complementarity and firm’s external resource integration risk. Then, we put forward the main conclusion: stronger external resource complementarity and stronger internal resource similarity between the acquirer and target firms will make integration in cross-border M&A less risky. For this study’s empirical stage, we collect a large amount of questionnaire data from Chinese firms with cross-border M&A experiences. We use the logistic regression method to verify hypothesis. This paper provides both the acquirer and target firms with fresh ideas of how to avoid the integration risk of cross-border M&A. We hope to help firms from developing country to achieve more outstanding results through cross-border M&A in an intense global competitive environment. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Quality & Quantity Springer Journals

Abstract

This paper concerns the high failure rate during the integration phase of cross-border M&A from the resource-based view. This integration risk in cross-border M&A comes from both firm’s internal resource and external resource integration. On this basis, we clearly analyze the relationship between resource similarity and firm’s internal resources integration risk, as well as resource complementarity and firm’s external resource integration risk. Then, we put forward the main conclusion: stronger external resource complementarity and stronger internal resource similarity between the acquirer and target firms will make integration in cross-border M&A less risky. For this study’s empirical stage, we collect a large amount of questionnaire data from Chinese firms with cross-border M&A experiences. We use the logistic regression method to verify hypothesis. This paper provides both the acquirer and target firms with fresh ideas of how to avoid the integration risk of cross-border M&A. We hope to help firms from developing country to achieve more outstanding results through cross-border M&A in an intense global competitive environment.
