Abstract [en]

No business day ends without news on a merger or an acquisition and most managers have experience of acquisitions and/or mergers. Mergers and acquisitions (M&A), that is, the acquisition of (the majority of) the shares in a target company or the legal unification of two organizations into one, are recurrent phenomena in business life (Cartwright and Schoenberg, 2006; Meglio and Risberg, 2010) appearing in waves (Martynova and Renneboog 2008; Shleifer and Vishny 1991). M&A not only result in changed shareholder value, but also in changed industry structures, reconsidered competitive landscapes, and form new key players in markets (Chandler, 1962; Cox, 2006; Finkelstein, 1997).

Stakeholder research (e.g., Parmar, Freeman, Harrison, Wicks, Prnell and de Colle, 2010; Rowley, 1997) emphasizes the multi-actor, multi-interest perspective to strategic decisions. A value chain perspective on firms suggests customers and suppliers as important stakeholders of firms (e. g., Normann and Ramirez, 1993) and indicates that customers and suppliers may actually act vis-à-vis an M&A. But the picture of customers and suppliers as tradable assets or potential beneficiaries from the acquirer’s point of view seems to dominate. In this paper we particularly address the stake at stake for customers and suppliers in M&A. The following questions are asked:

 To what extent are customers and suppliers acknowledged in the M&A literature?

 How are customer and supplier stakes in M&A described?

Abstract [en]

The objective is to get insights to secret temporary organization. We use project literature in our analysis of the case. We have a longitudinal case study method. Svenska Aeroplan Aktiebolag (later on Saab) entered car manufacturing in 1949 with Saab 92. The company used the 2-stroke engine technology from a German DKW. In 1964 the Saab 96 was voted “Car of the Year” in Sweden. Exports rose from 9500 in 1960 to 16 860 by 1965. However, the domestic sales dropped from 29 000 in 1964 to 26 000 in 1965. No doubt, Saab was losing market. After Volkswagen's had acquired DKW in 1964 the 2-stroke engine was dropped. Saab was the last Western car to have it. The 4-stroke engine was essential for Saab. The motor lab realised that Ford Motor Co.’s (Ford) the new V4 engine was ideal. In 1964, Saab decided to install it in its models in 1966. A small secret organization, called operation Kajsa, tested the engine in Europe for a half a year, rebuilt a number of cars, wrote workshop manuals and purchased systems and parts. There were no major problems to install the new V4 engine. 600 cars were ready for launch in August 1966. In spring Saab had reduced the production. In June Ford informed its dealers in Sweden that the Saab 96 would have its V4 engine. The six-year contract with Ford had no export restrictions. Total sales increased from 37069 cars in 1966 to 45325 in 1967. The switch of the engine seemed to have been well-planned and the internal team worked well. The partners and suppliers were kept well informed. If the project had not been implemented in secrecy would the whole operation Kajsa have failed?

Abstract [en]

Advertising fulfils a number of functions for a brand, such as informing, persuading and reminding consumers of the brand. Advertising helps create and sustain brand associations in the mind of the consumer. Selecting the most appropriate symbols for a brand is part of the crea-tion of positive associations. Consumers are active in the creation process when they construct a comprehensive set of brand associations, which help them make infer-ences about the product or service and construct a brand image. A brand association is defined as “anything that is linked in memory to a brand”.We have observed more animals in advertising and assume that the animal is expected to benefit the organi-sation by creating positive brand associations. The pur-pose is to investigate the use of animals in advertising and conceptualize how the animals support the associa-tion process.Recent advertising shown in the Swedish media (dur-ing 2012) which featured animals was identified and analysed. Use was made of an analysis guide for coding purposes. In the advertising, the specific animal, the product (or service or brand), the way in which the ani-mal was shown as well as the specific associations were examined.Preliminary findings suggest that animals are used in a rational way when examining the product category (e.g. dairy products and cows, cat food and cats). But the use of animals can also convey a somewhat subtle mes-sage like the lifestyle of a person portrayed with no direct connection to the functionality of the product (e.g. dogs in advertisements for cars).
