    Do External Technology Acquisitions Matter for Innovative Efficiency and Productivity?

    To quickly adapt to technological change and developments, and thus remain competitive, firms increasingly resort to the use of external technology. This paper investigates whether and to what extent the acquisition of external disembodied technology affects the efficiency and productivity in innovation of technology acquiring firms. Using the stochastic frontier analysis combined with a difference-in-difference ...

    Regional Patterns of Intangible Capital, Agglomeration Effects and Localised Spillovers in Germany

    We use a large micro-dataset to assess the importance of intangible capital - organisation, R&D and ICT capital - for the economic performance of establishments and regions in Germany. In 2003 self-produced intangible capital accounted for one fifth of the total capital stock of establishments with more than 10 employees. More than half of the intangible capital is R&D capital. This high proportion ...

    Does the Tenure of Private Equity Investment Improve the Performance of European Firms?

    The paper investigates whether the presence and tenure of Private Equity (PE) investment in European companies improves their performance. Previous studies documented the unambiguous merit of a buyout during the 1980s and 1990s for listed firms in the US and UK markets. This study analyzes such influences in both listed and unlisted European firms during 2002-2007. Our analysis suggests that short-term ...

    Private Equity, Corporate Governance and Out-Performance of High-Growth Firms

    The paper investigates how Private Equity (PE) ownership influences out-performance of a high-growth firm, and whether it differs from the effect of two other important types of financial investors: banks and non-bank financial firms. We transform the levered return on equity into a unlevered return and empirically test on some 30 thousand high growth European firms whether Private Equity' or other ...

    German Companies Do Less Research Abroad

    Germany has profited from the internationalization of research and development (R&D) in multinational companies. While the international R&D balance sheet was balanced until 2001, foreign companies now invest more in R&D in Germany than German companies abroad. The share of R&D expenditures of German multinationals abroad is declining, whereas their global expenditures are increasing. This means the ...

    Innovation Promotes Internationalization of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises

    In recent decades the internationalization of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) has increased significantly, especially in manufacturing industries. Yet in contrast to large, multinational corporations, not much is known about the international activities of SMEs. Data on East German SMEs show that size and innovative capacity have a significant influence on a company's international involvement, ...
