The literature review, as introduced in the first part of this paper, indicates that there are inconsistent numerical determinants available in the corresponding IB literature which serves to define an INV. Nevertheless, according to a common stream of literature contributions, the firm's age at international entry (three years or less), the export involvement (25 percent of turnover or more), and the markets covered (not less than five markets/two continents), were defined as classification determinants of an INV for the empirical part of this paper. Based on these classifications, the case study outcomes verified that EAC is categorized as an INV.(fragment of text)
