Stock price responses to 170 announcements about global product design and development (GPDD) by NYSE, AMEX, and Nasdaq firms are significantly positive. This indicates that GPDD, which is fast becoming a strategic initiative of choice for multinational firms in the face of globalization and short time-to-market, is value-enhancing. The value enhancement is strong when announcing firms have a high level of information technology/systems infrastructure and a wide geographical spread of operation, and respond aggressively to their peers' strategic initiatives. Further, cross-sectional analyses show that firms' product market structure, their peers' competitive strategy posture, and whether they produce a good or a service, jointly determine the variation of excess returns attributable to global product development.
