Abstract

This study determines the influence of internationalization on the performance of firms in Indonesia, Philippines, and Malaysia. This study also determines whether home country uncertainty and region of expansion strengthen relations between internationalization and firm performance. This study uses generalized least square (GLS) unbalanced panel data with annual data for 2009–2017. Results show a positive and significant influence of internationalization on firm performance. Home country uncertainty (political risk and level of corruption) as independent variables positively and significantly affect firm performance. As moderating variables, political risk and level of corruption have different significant influences. Political risk negatively affects firm performance, whereas level of corruption exerts positive effects. As moderating variable, regional expansion exerts significant influence only on level of corruption, whereas non-regional expansion significantly affects on level of corruption and political risk.
