A comparative study of cross-border mergers and acquisitions by privately- and state-owned enterprises
by Michael V. Gestrin
International Journal of Public Policy (IJPP), Vol. 13, No. 3/4/5, 2017

Abstract: This paper empirically examines the proposition that SOE and POE cross-border investments are different. It does so by comparing all M&A by SOEs and POEs (with a value greater than USD 5 million) undertaken between 1 January 1996 and 31 December 2013. This amounts to more than 200,000 deals collectively valued at USD 50 trillion. The main objective is to identify differences in the ways that privately-owned and state-owned enterprises expand into international markets using M&A, a primary vehicle for international direct investment.
