The effects of the degree of internationalization on firm performance
AbstractThis study developed and tested a model that attempts to describe the influence of internationalization on firm performance. Degree of internationalization was measured by foreign revenues/total revenues. Results based on data from a cross-sectional set of U.S. multinational firms find evidence of a nonmonotonic relationship between degree of internationalization and firm performance. The rate of return on assets declines, then increases, and finally decreases slightly as the degree of internationalization increases.
