Options, Timing, and Regional Entry of Firms

Elisabet Berglund ()

Abstract: This paper studies how the possibility to postpone the unrecoverable entry and location cost affects regional entry when post-entry earnings are uncertain. We find that the opportunity cost to enter today is higher when entering a region with high uncertainty relative to a region with low uncertainty.
