This study seeks to understand the adverse impact of related party transactions (RPTs) on the internationalization of emerging economy firms. The study further explores how a firm's ownership structure moderates the relationship between RPT and internationalization. Based on a sample of 367 Indian manufacturing firms, the study finds that RPTs have a negative influence on internationalization. Business group ownership is found to strengthen the negative relationship between RPTs and internationalization, whereas foreign shareholding weakens this relationship.
