Firm ownership remains a core construct in the international business (IB) literature (Aguilera & Crespi-Cladera, 2016). The need to retain ownership and control of firm-specific assets is at the core of internalisation theory and is a founding pillar of the dominant paradigms in IB. Indeed, as discussed in the recent retrospective by Brouthers (2013), the large literature on entry modes has explored ownership decisions at the point of entry, particularly with the aid of transaction cost theory. However, there is limited understanding of how multinational enterprises (MNE) and local partners adjust their ownership shares as the external environment changes.
heir ownership shares as the external environment changes. The existing theory on ownership change builds primarily on the tradition of Johanson and Vahlne (1977, 2009) who emphasise experiential learning and the evolutionary aspects of the process of ownership structure adjustment. However, the existing literature treats the evolution of foreign presence in a location as being, ceteris paribus, an incremental process of increased commitment. Accordingly, many studies adopt a theoretical framework that is in line with the Uppsala model (see e.g., Brouthers & Bamossy, 1997; and Globerman & Shapiro, 2003), which argues that firms internationalise incrementally based on their ability to successfully leverage their ownership advantages into new markets. However, to use this argument in order to explore the nature of the relationship between experience and affiliate ownership is, as Birkinshaw and Morrison (1995) point out, misleading. Rather, it is important to emphasise that the process of ownership change is driven by a variety of factors, resulting in an increase or a decrease in shares held by the foreign investor over time. Importantly, these follow not only the foreign investor’s strategy but are co-determined by the local partner’s incentives and motivation in holding the remainder of the affiliates’ ownership shares. We incorporate this aspect into the analysis in order to consider the relative value of both the foreign and the local partner’s contributions at the affiliate level. We argue that the evolution of the relative value of these contributions varies not only due to firm-level features and processes (relatedness of affiliate to parent and maturity of the affiliate), but also due to the institutional environments. Our study, therefore, contributes to the literature on internationalisation and ownership change in several ways.
First, we conceptualise post-entry changes in foreign affiliate ownership with the aid of property rights theory. Indeed, we seek to develop this literature in line with the findings of Beamish and Lupton (2016) who argue that it is important for future theory building on cooperative strategies in IB to focus research “on what is best for the agreement, or joint venture (JV), rather than what is good for either the foreign or local partner” (Beamish & Lupton2016: 173). Building on this perspective, we argue that much of the existing literature, views ownership structures only from the perspective of the foreign partner (i.e. parent MNE), while the local partner (i.e. host country partner) is equally important. It is necessary therefore to expand our conceptual understanding. We posit that the property rights theory is a perspective that fits this suggested purpose, and we use this theory to conceptualise postentry changes in foreign affiliate ownership. This allows us to develop arguments to extend the traditional analysis centred on transaction costs (Brouthers, 2002) in order to consider the optimal distribution of ownership shares, emphasising effective responses to the problem of incomplete control. We use insights gleaned from property rights theory to investigate firm level and country level drivers of changes in ownership structure. In doing so, we explore the applicability of the property rights theory to the core IB theme of firm ownership (Antràs, 2014). Our main argument is that changes along the institutional dimensions and to the firm-level characteristics affect the relative value of the local and foreign partners’ contributions and their outside options (e.g. sources of finance) in a non-symmetric manner.
