They find that all four basic sources of corporate value creation are also available to the companies in a business group as compared to stand-alone companies. Of particular relevance in an emergingmarket context are benefits of reputation and sociopolitical clout, economies of scale from centralization of certain functions, synergies from resource coordination opportunities, and corporate development activities (portfolio management).
