Cross-border R&D can contribute to the enhancement of independent innovation capabilities of
emerging markets multinational enterprises (EMNEs) by benefiting from knowledge manage-
ment. However, scant research exists examining the location impact of cross-border R&D for
EMNEs on performance implications. This paper fills this important theoretical gap by building
upon the literature of genetic distance in connection with knowledge management. We use a
panel data of Chinese high-tech listed companies to empirically examine the impact of genetic
distance on the performance of cross-border R&D and the role played by international experience.
Our results reveal a positive relationship between genetic distance and the performance of cross-
border R&D. Importantly, we highlight the motivation for cross-border R&D of EMNEs to acquire
technical knowledge magnifies the positive effects of genetic distance and performance.
Furthermore, our analysis indicates that international experience significantly enhanced the
positive effect of genetic distance on cross-border R&D performance. We conclude this paper by
discussing theoretical contributions to genetic distance, international management and knowl-
edge management, as well as practical implications for cross-border R&D of EMNEs.
