The past three decades have witnessed a growing theoretical and managerial interest in international joint ventures (IJVs). Of growing interest has especially been the analysis of IJV performance. The previous studies have indicated very varying results about IJV performance and determinants of IJV performance. Fourteen hypotheses of the impact of foreign parent, target country, and investment strategy specific variables on performance were developed and tested. In a central role in the study was also the question do the results depend on the measure of performance? As the measures of performance were selected: longevity, survival, and stability. The empirical part of the paper is based on over 720 IJVs made by Finnish firms. The most significant variables were the international experience and the degree of diversification of the Finnish firms, unit unrelatedness, and the individualism dimension of culture. The results indicated relatively much differences depending on measure of performance.
