In this article, we examine the influence of cross-cultural traits on brand extension success. Drawing on prior brand extension studies from different countries, we conduct a comprehensive meta-analysis, complementing the data sets with Hofstede's cultural dimensions values. Our results show that all the dimensions either directly or indirectly exert a significant influence on brand extension success by not only moderating the effects of the mother brand's quality, but also by moderating the fit between the brand and the extension.
