Acquiring firm imitates the payment method decisions made by prior foreign acquirers targeting the same host country in cross‐border acquisitions. Information asymmetry and bounded rationality induces acquirers to imitate the decisions of other foreign firms in the similar context. Mimetic behavior of the firms is more salient when the acquiring firm belongs to a country with high uncertainty avoidance cultural attribute and when institutional uncertainty is high in host country. The hypotheses are tested using binary logistic regression on a dataset of 1,136 cross‐border acquisitions done by a group of seven countries during 2000–2010.
