Corporate divorce: Interconnecting disrupted and fading changes

Abstract [en]

This paper describes and discusses changes oninter-organizational and intra-organizational levels of corporate divorce. Corporate divorce refers to the separation of previous merged companies. The paper illustrates changes following a corporate divorce through a single case study. The changes are classified into disrupted or fading ones to illustrate whether they are sudden or describe ever decreasing involvement. Five different changes are found in the case: fading production, disrupted relationships with wholesalers on one market, while fading on another, and staff changes representing both disruptedchanges and fading ones. The changes are connected in a pattern that indicates how fading changes may cause new fading ones, or disrupted ones, and how disrupted changes may lead to fading or disrupted changes on levels that interconnect inter-organizational changes with intra-organizational ones. While the companies are separated back to the units as prior to the merger, the reversal does not describe them returning to their previous forms, hence indicating that a merger also reshapes the individual companies in a lasting way. The paper contributes to research in its discussion on the interconnectivity of inter-organizational and intra-organizational changes, and to literature on organizational decline, divestment and dissolution through pointing to the consequences of a separation of firms.
