Abstract [en]

We estimate causal treatment effects of domestic and foreign acquisitions on plant survival, employment (growth) and the skill composition within acquired plants. To do so, we look at takeovers of private firms in Danish manufacturing and service sectors during the period 2002-2015. We use plant-, firm-, and industry-level information to control for the non-random selection of the acquisition targets, differentiated for domestic and foreign acquirers, by combining a difference-in-differences approach with a propensity score weighting estimator. Our results reveal positive effects on plant survival, employment (growth) and the skill intensity for domestic targets, while foreign targets reduce their skill intensity following an acquisition.

Abstract [en]

This paper investigates the effect of global sourcing on firm performances by using data on Danish manufacturing firms during the period 1995–2006. The results show that firms with better ex‐ante characteristics are more inclined to source intermediate inputs from abroad. The results also show that firms that source from different locations possess different ex‐ante characteristics; the most productive source inputs from high‐wage countries while capital stock and being an exporter are more important factors when sourcing from low‐wage countries. Moreover, controlling for the endogeneity of both the sourcing decision and location by using instrument variable and DiD matching approach, the results seem also to suggest that firms that source inputs from high‐wage countries benefited from doing so in terms of higher growth of productivity and export intensity. Firms that source inputs from low‐wage countries, on the other hand, seem not to have experienced any significant impact on neither productivity nor export, not even three years after they started to source inputs from these countries.

The results show that firms with better ex-ante characteristics are more inclined in offshoring activities. The results also show that firms that source from different locations possesses different ex-ante characteristics; the most productive source inputs from high-wage countries while, capital stock and being an exporter are more important factors when sourcing from low-wage countries. Moreover, controlling for the endogeneity of both the offshoring decision and location by using instrument variable and DiD matching approach, the results seem also to suggest that firms that allocated some of their production process to high-wage countries benefited from doing so in terms of higher growth of productivity and export intensity. Firms that allocated their offshoring activities to low-wage countries, on the other hand, seems to not have experienced any significant impact on neither productivity nor export, not even three years after they started to offshore.

Abstract [en]

This paper investigates the link between offshoring and product development by utilizing novel and detailed firm- and product level dataset for the Danish manufacturing sector during the period 1996-2006. By using information on all import transactions disaggregated by origin and on all manufactured products and sales measured at the eight-digit Combined Nomenclature (CN8) level, I am able to define, i) whether the firms are engaged in offshoring activities or not, ii) the amount of CN2, CN4 and CN6 product mix they sell in the domestic and export market, and iii) whether they have (on a yearly basis) developed a new product. The results seem to indicate that offshoring firms have better ex-ante characteristics than non-offshoring firms. However, controlling for this endogeneity by using Coarsened Exact Matching (CEM), the results seem also to indicate that offshoring to high-wage countries increases the probability to develop a new CN4 and CN6 products by about 11 and 12 percent, whereas offshoring to low-wage countries have no effect on product development. Moreover, locating the offshoring to high-wage countries have no significant effect on the amount of CN2 product mix, only on CN4 and CN6 product mix. However, if the offshoring is located in low-wage countries the CN4 and CN6 product mix are not affected but the CN2 product mix is on average reduced by 5 percent as compared to the matched non-offshoring firms.
