This paper offers an analysis of board interlocks as a source of imitation in the context of corporate acquisitions. Mimetic effects in firms’ acquisitions have been identified at multiple levels, especially in terms of acquisition activity and acquisition premium. This paper, therefore, analyzes extant literature on interlocks as drivers of isomorphism in firms’ acquisition behavior and offers potential avenues for future research.
