Agricultural Producer Cooperatives as Strategic Alliances AgEcon
Gall, Roslynne G.; Schroder, Bill.
In this paper we examine the linkages between four bodies of business-to-business relationship theory (transaction cost analysis, the resource-based theory of the firm (RBV), social network theory and theories of trust and cooperation) to the design and governance of agricultural cooperatives. Defining a cooperative broadly as any type of alliance formed by producers for their mutual benefit, we base the discussion on three types of cooperative; traditional, "new generation" and learning networks. Our main focus is on cooperatives as an alliance between members, but we also discuss alliances between cooperatives We find that there is a gap in the literature relating to the analysis of alliances with more than two members (such as cooperatives), so the...

ALIANÇAS ESTRATÉGICAS E VISÃO BASEADA EM RECURSOS: UM ENFOQUE SISTÊMICO DO PROCESSO DE TOMADA DE DECISÃO NAS PROPRIEDADES RURAIS AgEcon
Dutra, Alberto Silva; Machado, Joao Armando Dessimon; Rathmann, Regis.
O processo de globalização e a abertura comercial brasileira são fenômenos que contribuem para explicar a maior complexidade característica ao ambiente no qual o produtor rural está inserido, exigindo deste agente maior dinamismo e capacidade adaptativa no que tange à estruturação de suas estratégias e ao seu processo de tomada de decisão. Fica evidenciada, neste contexto, a necessidade de uma visão sistêmica na gestão dos recursos e potencialidades da propriedade rural, a fim de atingir os objetivos propostos. Sendo assim, buscou-se neste artigo resgatar aspectos teóricos que contribuam para o entendimento do processo de tomada de decisão do produtor rural em um enfoque sistêmico, salientando a necessidade de desenvolvimento de capacidades e aprendizagem...

Case Studies of Strategic Alliances in U.S. Beef Production AgEcon
Gillespie, Jeffrey M.; Bu, Angel; Boucher, Robert W.; Choi, Won-Jun.
Calf marketing, commercial beef carcass, and natural/implant-free beef strategic alliances were examined via case study to determine alliance structure and whether each addressed risk, transaction costs, capital availability, and other concerns. All alliances were structured differently through vertical or horizontal coordination, and each had been established within the past 12 years. Alliance administrators reported that an advantage to cow-calf producers was higher cattle prices received relative to producers outside the alliances. The alliances reduced transaction costs and increased information flow among segments. Alliances did not specifically address risk or increased access to capital for technology adoption or expansion purposes.

Cooperative Mergers and Acquisitions: The Role of Capital Constraints AgEcon
Richards, Timothy J.; Manfredo, Mark R..
Several explanations for merger activity exist for publicly traded firms, but none consider the unique aspects of cooperatives. This study develops a test for the hypothesis that cooperative consolidation occurs primarily in response to capital constraints associated with a lack of access to external equity capital. An empirical model estimates the shadow value of long-term investment capital within a multinomial logit model of transaction choice in a panel data set of the 100 largest U.S. cooperatives. The results substantially confirm the capital-constraint hypothesis. Thus, the primary implication is that internal growth may be a more viable alternative to consolidation if new forms of cooperative financing are developed.

Creole Coffee AgEcon
Kennedy, P. Lynn; Roule, Elizabeth D..
Creolé Coffee had just started to achieve regional and national success. However,recent volatility in the world coffee market resulted not only in price instabilities, but also created difficulty in procuring the high-quality product customers had grown to expect from Creolé. In examining this situation, Jim Brewer determined that the company must adapt their relationships with producers to ensure the availability of the quality and quantity of coffee needed to produce the premium blends consumers now associate with Creolé. In turn this would allow the company to provide consumers with a high quality product at a stable price.

FACTORS INFLUENCING ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE IN THE FOOD MANUFACTURING, CHEMICAL, AGRICULTURAL WHOLESALING AND BIOTECHNOLOGY INDUSTRIES AgEcon
Roucan-Kane, Maud; Pena, Inaki; Boehlje, Michael; Akridge, Jay T..
The objective of this study is to identify factors determining a business investment strategy (i.e., the choice of investment commitment and form of organizational structure) in the food manufacturing, chemical, agricultural wholesaling and biotechnology industries. Propositions regarding strategic alliance theories are tested on over 400 inter-firm collaborative agreements using secondary data from major US and European companies for the 1994-97 period. Results suggest that transactions with lower technological and resource uncertainty levels are more likely to result in investments with a higher commitment level (i.e., acquisitions or majority equity-based controlling investments). The investment commitment level embedded in a single business transaction...

MERGERS, ACQUISITIONS, JOINT VENTURES, AND STRATEGIC ALLIANCES IN AGRICULTURAL COOPERATIVES AgEcon
Hudson, Darren; Herndon, Cary W., Jr..
A recent merger "wave" has occurred within the economy, including the agricultural sector. Some research has been conducted on publicly traded companies, but there is little information available on merger activity within agricultural cooperatives. This paper presents the results of a recent survey of agricultural cooperatives and attempts to identify major trends in merger activity within cooperatives.

Post Merger Performance of Agricultural Cooperatives AgEcon
Richards, Timothy J.; Manfredo, Mark R..
Agricultural cooperatives are participating in mergers, acquisitions, strategic alliances, and joint ventures at a record pace. While post-post merger performance has been examined extensively for investor owned firms, this has not been the case for agricultural cooperatives since these firms do not have an explicit profit motive nor publicly traded stock. Results from a three-stage econometric model reveal that a major motivation for cooperatives to engage in these activities is to circumvent unique capital constraints, thus resulting in improved profitability. Furthermore, the decision to merge and financial performance are jointly endogenous, with profitability positively influenced and sales growth negatively influenced by the likelihood of merger.

Redesigning the Food Chain: Trade, Investment and Strategic Alliances in the Orange Juice Industry AgEcon
Azevedo, Paulo Furquim de; Chaddad, Fabio Ribas.
Change in trade barriers and capital flow creates opportunities for redesigning the food chain. The orange juice chain in U.S. and Brazil provides an interesting illustration of how institutional harmonization, high import tariff rates and complementary capabilities open new opportunities for strategic alliances and the re-arrangement in the FCOJ chain. This finding has the following implications. First, trade barriers are not enough to support FDI and related internationalization decisions. Second, the perspective of market integration creates a positive environment for new strategic alliances and the re-design of the food chain. And third, the existence of complementary capabilities between foreign and domestic companies is a necessary condition for this...

VANTAGENS E DESVANTAGENS DAS ALIANÇAS ESTRATÉGICAS: UMA ANÁLISE SOB A ÓTICA DOS AGENTES DA CADEIA PRODUTIVA DA CARNE BOVINA AgEcon
Ferreira, Gabriela Cardozo; Barcellos, Marcia Dutra de.
This paper proposes to analyse the advantages and disadvantages of strategic alliances in agri-food chains, based on the perceptions of participating agents from a specific beef productive chain. The analysis is therefore based on the alliance’s main partners’ view: retail, abattoir and beef producers. Their objective was to produce a differentiated product and to develop a beef brand to be commercialized at retail level. In addition, this study also proposes to identify the main factors impacting in the success of alliances, from the agents’ point of view, as well as the main causes of failure in this kind of strategy, allowing for a better understanding of the factors that can maintain such alliances in the market. The obtained results indicate that the...
