"Do pre-acquisitions alliances help in post-acquisitions coordination : an experimental approach"

Previous research suggests that acquisitions preceded by alliances between

acquired and acquiring firms generate superior coordination relative to outright acquisitions. To address research gaps

related to both the underlying theoretical drivers and empirical evidence on the issue, we use an experimental methodology to

investigate this question. We find that when selection effects are controlled for, prior resource interdependence in

pre-acquisition alliances may actually have a detrimental effect on the degree of post-acquisition coordination, due to the

development and transference of scripts from the pre-acquisition stage that may be inappropriate post-acquisition.

Coordination can, however, be improved by communication and prior social contact during the alliance setting, enabling the

overcoming of scripts that are no longer appropriate.
