V. SHYAM KUMAR affecting this ratio, which is the value of resources possessed by the partner relative to a firm’s resources. 3. The dynamics of how firms adjust their resource allocation patterns in the JV to their partner’s behavior is a complicated issue and is not the focus of this paper. Khanna et al. (1998) discuss many of the nuances. For the present, we would mainly like to note that there would be a tendency to allocate lesser resources to joint value creation as the potential for earning privates benefits increases.

The above analysis assumes that firms are randomly assigned to dyads and that there is no systematic value creation effect at the JV level. If JVs do indeed create value at the dyadic level, then this increases the probability that two firms with positive gains would be observed within the same venture. Put differently, if common benefits are significant and positive, then rather than being random, this increases the probability that two firms with positive abnormal returns would fall in the same JV.

G. Lang, Stulz, & Walking, 1989; Servaes, 1991), it has been consistently found that value creation is enhanced when firms with high Tobin’s q acquire firms with low Tobin’s q. But the results of this study suggest that value creation decreases as the differential in Tobin’s q increases Value Creation in Joint Venture Dyads 47 between partners in a JV. Thus, unlike acquisitions in the case of JVs, the capital market seems to prefer a ‘marriage of equals’. Fundamentally speaking, this difference arises due to the incomplete control and the presence of private benefits in JVs.
