Method: We have chosen to base our research on quantitative data that have been collected through a deductive approach. The method used for collecting data is a questionnaire. The theoretical framework is conducted through studies of books about foreign direct investments. Conclusions: The clearest conclusion that could be drawn is that market-seekers mainly undertake horizontal FDI in the form of acquisitions.
