Abstract

This experimental paper explains foreign acquisitions by Indian multinational enterprises by reference to location specific factors in both the source country (India) and host countries together with variables required designed to capture the distance between India and the host country, both geographic and psychic. The paper finds that country specific advantages play an important role in explaining Indian foreign acquisitions. The general model performs well and Indian institutional and domestic capital variables add explanatory value.
