Beskrivning av projektet
The purpose of the project is to provide an understanding of MNEs’ foreign divestment and relocation strategies and their role in firm value creation. Significant gaps remain in our understanding of the determinants, deterrents, decision process, and value creation potential of foreign divestment and relocation strategies, and the project will advance theory by integrating strategic management, international business and finance literature. The project will use secondary quantitative data on divestment strategies and firm value creation from c. 2500 divestments of Nordic manufacturing firms. Interview data from Nordic case companies will illuminate the divestment and relocation decision-making processes. This project will be carried out with the collaboration of renowned scholars from international universities and it will help company managers to plan and implement divestment and relocation strategies. Findings will also help policy makers to understand divestment reasons.
