PhD: Università della Svizzera italiana

English Companies need to carefully balance their product portfolios and actions to survive, stay competitive, and maximize shareholders’ value. One way to study a company’s product portfolio is through its life cycle, a well-established concept that products move through life cycle stages. Despite the concept’s importance, the finance literature has only recently started recognizing its value. This doctoral thesis contributes to this part of the finance literature by exploring different aspects of the product life cycle and its importance for companies’ investment and financing decisions. The three essays composing the thesis cover three different but important companies’ decisions: mergers and acquisitions (M&A), initial public offerings (IPO), and stock repurchases.
