This study investigates mergers and acquisitions in emerging economies. Combining a questionnaire survey with eleven case studies in Poland, Hungary and Lithuania, it develops a dynamic perspective of international acquisitions, and a refined acquisition typology. Implications are derived for managers and policy makers, and for scholarly research.
