Abstract [en]

Combining the core-periphery model with family firm literature, we find that family firms exhibit unique acquisition and divestiture behaviors. Analyzing a sample of Swedish privately held limited companies we find that family firms acquire and divest distant, unrelated and larger but fewer businesses. In addition to economic objectives, family firms pursuing non-economic objectives prefer to buy and sell unrelated businesses at longer geographic distances to lower impact on their core business from their restructuring activities.
