THE DAVIDS AND THE GOLIATHS: INVESTMENT DYNAMICS AND PERFORMANCE DIFFERENTIALS OF SMALL FIRMS AND FAMILY-CONTROLLED LARGE FIRMS IN FOUR SECTORS OF THE INDIAN MARKET
This study focuses on investment structures and performances of family-controlled and non-affiliated publicly traded firms on the Indian market. While many influential, family-controlled firms dominate a large part of the Indian industry today, this study finds that a considerable fraction of the non-affiliated firms are able to maintain stable financial performance by forging strategic ties with other non-affiliated firms in transactional supply-chains modes. This study contributes to the understanding of the question concerning how investment structures of firms might be governed through interfirm ties of coordinated and cooperative investments. The results have important implications for the markets of emerging economies in the Asia-Pacific and the Southeast Asian regions.
