Abstract

We link agency theory and an institutional theory to predict the strategic choices firms make during a period of institutional transition. The strategic choices we investigate are the choice to exit the market, and the choice to collaborate with foreign firms. We investigate the impact of ownership concentration, ownership identity, business group affiliation and institutional transition on these strategic choices. The results based on a longitudinal sample of more than 9000 Indian firms during 1990-2005 suggest that different owners have different motivation and preferences in making the strategic choices. We also find a significant variation in firms' strategic choices during different phases of institutional transition and for group affiliated and un-affiliated firms.
