Strategic partnerships are theoretically now considered as real levers of value creation. This value creation takes different forms . The objective of our research, after analyzing the results of empirical works focused on the acquisitions announcements impact on the stock market performance and also their actual value creation in the long-term, is to check if strategic partnerships create market value and the actual value. Our final results show that in the short term the announcement of a strategic partnership has a negative impact on performance as opposed to the announcement of a merger-acquisition, while other hand on the long-term, there is no positive impact (neutral impact) of strategic partnerships on financial performance. We explain this result by the phenomenon of "creation of compensatory value" in the context of a strategic and financial plan
