  • Sub-theme 35: Designing M&As and Organization through M&As

    Elvira Periac   Sébastien Gand   Jean-Claude Sardas  

    Among researches on knowledge issues in M&As, there has been a stream underlining the importance of knowledge integration process (i. e process of transfer or combination - within or between firms -, resulting in the production of a new/renewed form of knowledge) in post merger phases. In these researches, Knowledge integration appears as a key issue for the success of M&As. Our paper aims at contributing to understand knowledge integration processes in M&As, and more precisely, the way specific individual roles intervene in these processes: their action, their abilities and their specificities. Based on an empirical study of a merger between 3 French public administrations, we propose a framework to analyze individual roles in knowledge integration processes in M&As. Based on the concept of Knowledge Broker, we specify the existing view by proposing two sub-categories of individual roles: first, Knowledge Mediators who achieve knowledge integration both by mediating knowledge between actors to lead them to produce new/renewed knowledge and by producing a new/renewed knowledge themselves; second, Knowledge Developers who achieve knowledge integration by combining themselves several areas of knowledge to produce a new/renewed knowledge out of any action of mediation between actors or specific position in a network. Such a framework contributes to a better understanding of two issues for knowledge integration in M&As literature: the importance of the human factor and the diversity of the mechanisms to achieve knowledge integration.

  • Knowledge utilisation drivers in technological M&As

    Orsi, Luigi; Ganzaroli, Andrea; De Noni, Ivan; Marelli, Federica  

    Several contributions look at the effect of technological M&As on the acquirer's technological performance. The knowledge-based perspective highlights the critical role that the acquirer's target's knowledge absorption plays as the main driver in enhancing post-M&A technological performance. However, absorptive capacity is a rather complex construct, which includes assimilation, utilisation and transformation of the acquired knowledge. In this paper, we focus on knowledge utilisation and investigate two factors whose effects on post-M&A technological performance have been extensively highlighted: technological relatedness and managerial experience. We contribute to the existing literature with a better understanding of the factors underlying the utilisation of the knowledge acquired in M&As. This should help managers to enhance their capacity to manage integration process post-M&As. Our results are based on a cross-sectional data set of 152 biopharmaceutical acquirers that completed at least one M&A between 2001 and 2005.

  • Greenfield FDI, cross-border M&As, and government size

    Ashraf, Ayesha   Herzer, Dierk   Nunnenkamp, Peter  

    This study examines the effects of greenfield foreign direct investment (FDI) and cross-border mergers and acquisitions (M&As) on government size in host countries of FDI. Using panel data for up to 130 countries for the period from 2003 to 2011, the study specifically tests the compensation hypothesis, suggesting that by increasing economic insecurity, economic openness leads to larger government size. It is found that greenfield FDI increases labour market volatility and thereby economic insecurity while M&As are not significantly associated with labour market volatility. The main results of this study are that greenfield FDI has a robust positive effect on government size, while M&As have no statistically significant effect on government size in the total sample of developed and developing countries, as well as in the sub-samples of developed and developing countries.

  • Shareholder activism targets M&As

    Royce D. Burnett   Li Xu   Marc Morris and Ramon P. Rodriguez Jr.  

    Shareholders aren't passive observers anymore—and increasingly they have been rallying to defeat corporate mergers and acquisitions (M&As) that they don't like. So what strategies can management use to plan and govern in the face of today's growing shareholder activism?

  • Porous Pt–M (M = Cu, Zn, Ni) nanoparticles as robust nanocatalysts

    Wang, Si-Bo   Zhu, Wei   Ke, Jun   Gu, Jun   Yin, An-Xiang   Zhang, Ya-Wen   Yan, Chun-Hua  

    Porous Pt-M (M = Cu, Zn, Ni) nanoparticles (NPs) were obtained by reduction of [Pt(CH3NH2)(4)][PtCl4] and M(Ac)(2) (or MCl2) with oleylamine under mild conditions. The porous Pt-Cu NPs exhibited superior catalytic activities over a Pt/Cu NP mixture and Cu NPs as references for CO oxidation processes.
