We investigate the impact of Outward Foreign Direct Investment (OFDI) on the innovation performance of Indian multinationals by analysing their choice of entry mode (cross-border acquisitions versus greenfield investments) and their international location decisions (i.e. choice to locate in a global city). We rely on an augmented fractional logit estimator for 170 foreign investments in high- and medium-high tech manufacturing sectors in the period 2003 to 2011 and find that: (i) compared to greenfield investments, acquisitions generate more technological opportunities; (ii) location in a global city has a negative impact on the Indian companies’ innovation performance; (iii) the positive effect of acquisition decreases if the investment is focused on a global city. These findings should be informative for both firms and government authorities involved in developing going-global strategies.
