Abstract

© 2015 Elsevier Ltd This study examines knowledge acquisitions of Indian multinationals via overseas mergers and acquisitions. Specifically, the paper examines the effects of the perceived subsidiary capability, parent absorptive capacity, and the relevance of the target knowledge on reverse knowledge transfer. Using firm level data from a survey of Indian multinationals (with overseas acquisitions), we find that perceived subsidiary capability, knowledge relevance, and absorptive capacity positively influence reverse knowledge transfer. The results also highlight the moderating role of knowledge relevance and the mediating effects of absorptive capacity.
