Abstract [en]

The dynamics of ownership and control have received increased attention over the years, and a vast array of empirical studies have targeted the question on how different types of owners create value. In this study, special attention is given to families and similar main owners. The sample consists of firms in Sweden in the 2010-2014 period. The analytical emphasis lies on the various ownership and control structures that may be employed, and focus therein is directed towards differential voting rights. The key finding is that a high excess of voting rights is indicated to increase value creation. A final remark is that the commonly discussed incentive and entrenchment effects are considered somewhat challenging to apply on these results in a facile manner, but additional explanations are brought forth to facilitate the analysis with respect to unique situational factors.
