This study focuses on one of the most important aspects of domestic joint venture and international joint venture (IJV) formation: culture difference. The study adapts the Makino and Beamish (1998) ownership-structure classification of IJVs and empirically examines the effects of JV partner and JV location cultural differences. Using an event-study methodology, our results reveal the impact of cultural difference on shareholder value creation. The article discusses the implications of using cultural difference measures in international research.
