The competitive dynamics of vertical integration : evidence from U.S. motion picture producers, 1912-1970.

Negro, G. and Sorenson, O. (2006) 'The competitive dynamics of vertical integration : evidence from U.S. motion picture producers, 1912-1970.', Advances in strategic management., 23 . pp. 367-403.

Abstract

We investigate the competitive consequence of vertical integration on organizational performance using a comprehensive dataset of U.S. motion picture production companies, which includes information on their vertical scope and competitive overlaps. Vertical integration appears to change the dynamics of competition in two ways: (i) it buffers the vertically integrated firms from environmental dependence and (ii) it intensifies competition among non-integrated organizations. In contrast to the existing literature, our results suggest that vertical integration has implications well beyond both the level of the individual transaction and even the internal efficiency of the integrated firm.
