Abstract [en]

This thesis takes an integrated perspective between theories of corporate strategy and corporate finance in exploring the issue of value creation. We have analyzed four industries: Pulp & Paper, Pharmaceuticals, Telecommunications and Biotech. We develop our perspective on how companies in these industries should create shareholder value and gain strategic control. This is performed by analyzing the strategic implications for each industry in order to reach these two objectives. At a more general level, we analyze the common denominators and discrepancies among these implications across the industries and come up with general conclusions of strategic implications that all companies can learn from. To reach our results, we have analyzed over 50 annual reports, conducted 12 interviews and read several research reports. The interviews were conducted with representatives from three different perspectives: financial analysts, strategy consultants and company representatives.
