Abstract [en]

Corporate governance structures around the world are evolving, and there has been an increasing interest in the board leadership position, particularly the role of the chairperson of the board. Given that board leadership is experiencing changing roles and demands, the time is ripe to take stock of existing knowledge in order gain a comprehensive overview of the field and to identify promising avenues for future research. Reviewing 134 academic articles published in 49 journals from 1985 to 2017, this paper explores the role of the chairperson of the board. We identify five research streams and discuss the current trends concerning the board chair position. Following this, we offer a research agenda designed to contribute to and extend our current theoretical and empirical understanding of the board chair position.

Abstract [en]

Contemporary research has demonstrated that entrepreneurship is a fundamentally contextualized phenomenon and unfolds differently in different contexts. Despite the extensive coverage of the importance of embeddedness for entrepreneurial activities, the research predominantly relies on somewhat static, single layered, and binary notions of embeddedness. We argue that there is a strong need for studies that problematize embeddedness and the relationship between entrepreneur and context. This call for papers, thus invites contributions that explore embeddedness as dynamic, processual and multi-layered, as well as elaborate on the paradoxes of embeddedness?

Abstract [en]

We take the perspective that considering the affective motives of dominant owners is essential to understanding business exit. Drawing on a refinement of behavioral agency theory, we argue that family-controlled firms are less likely than non-family-controlled firms to exit and tend to endure increased financial distress to avoid losses to the family’s socioemotional wealth (SEW) embodied in the firm. Yet, when confronted with different exit options and performance heuristics suggest that exit is unavoidable family firms are more likely to exit via merger, which we argue saves some SEW, although it is less satisfactory financially. In contrast, non-family firms are more likely to exit via sale or dissolution, options that are more prone to offer higher financial returns than mergers. Family and non-family firms thus show different orders of exit options. We find support for these arguments in a longitudinal matched sample of privately held Swedish firms.

Abstract [en]

Principal Topic:

During the last decade entrepreneurial teams have gained increased attention among entrepreneurship scholars. Interestingly, entrepreneurial teams composed of spousal couples constitute the most common type of entrepreneurial team (Ruef, 2010; Hellerstedt, 2009). One reason for this strong prevalence of spousal teams is that the spousal couple is the focal point of any family system and is characterized by mutual affinity, and trust—characteristics considered as beneficial for entrepreneurial team formation (Ruef, 2010). However, relational and affective conflicts within teams have been argued to be detrimental to venture performance (Ensley et al 2002). Therefore, it is interesting to consider that spousal couples often go through challenging periods in terms of relational conflicts and the intensity of these conflicts may depend on the family stage spousal couples find themselves (Pollmann-Schult, 2014). To build our hypotheses, we build on literatures on entrepreneurial teams (Blatt, 2009), entrepreneurs’ relational embeddedness (Granovetter, 1992) and family embeddedness (Aldrich & Cliff, 2003).

Method:

Our empirical setting is based on data provided by Statistics Sweden and requires the matching of several databases: The first database is LISA – a database comprising all legal residents of Sweden. The second database is RAMS which provides yearly data on all registered firms. Finally, the multi-generational database provides us with information on spousal couples. By linking individuals to their families as well as through constructing links between the firm-level database, RAMS, and the individual-level database, LISA, we are able to identify businesses run by spousal partners. Following Hill et al (2011) we classify the family life stages according to individuals’ age and existence of children and their age.

Results and Implications:

With our research we contribute to the literatures on entrepreneurial teams (Blatt, 2009), research on entrepreneurs’ relational embeddedness (Granovetter, 1992) and family embeddedness (Aldrich & Cliff, 2003). We contribute to the entrepreneurial team literature by showing that the spousal relationship is influenced by relational dynamics such as separation and family stage. We further contribute to the strand of entrepreneurs’ relational embeddedness by showing that specific relational resources accrue due to the spouses’ relational embeddedness, which may change over family stage and may be disrupted by relational conflicts.

Abstract [sv]

Myndigheten för tillväxtpolitiska utvärderingar och analyser, Tillväxtanalys, har haft i uppdrag av regeringen att genomföra kartläggning och analys av ägarskiften i företag. Uppdraget omfattade även att göra jämförelser mellan generationsskiften och andra typer av ägarskiften som inte är åldersbaserade samt belysa möjligheten att följa upp företagens skifte och dynamik över tid. Tillväxtanalys lämnade i oktober 2013 en delrapportering av uppdraget som avser dels en kartläggning av åldersstrukturen i företagsstocken, dels en fördjupad analys av ägarskiften. Denna rapport är en redovisning av uppdragets sista del som innebär utveckling och dokumentation av dataunderlag för identifiering av ägarförändringar.

SCB har på uppdrag av Tillväxtanalys undersökt möjligheten att bättre identifiera ägarskiften genom att integrera och göra en matchningskontroll av kompletterande uppgifter gällande delägare i fåmansaktiebolag som kan hämtas från Skatteverket, SKV, med redan befintlig information om företagsdynamik, vilken finns i Företagens och arbetsställenas dynamik, FAD, och den registerbaserade arbetsmarknadsstatisken, RAMS, på SCB. För att göra detta studeras företagens ägarskiften mellan åren 2010 och 2011. Uppdraget omfattar även att beskriva FAD gällande syfte, metodik och innehåll.

Cirka 80 procent av samtliga företag oberoende av bolagsform överlevde mellan åren 2010 och 2011. Resterande företag har på något sätt förändrats. Företag läggs ned och andra startar som en del i strukturomvandlingen. Dessutom ser vi att många företag och arbetsställen byter ägare. Näringslivet visar på en stor dynamik och dynamiken omfattar många olika typer av förändringar.

Bearbetningarna visar att det med hjälp av RAMS och SKV:s register går att följa och framställa uppgifter om ägarförändringar på ett bra sätt. Detta gäller både för fåmansaktiebolag, där det går att följa individuellt ägande, och för övriga juridiska former där förändringar i organisationsnummer kan spåras, vilket indikerar ändrade ägarförhållanden. Analysen visar att SKV:s register är ett bra komplement till RAMS och FAD och tillför ytterligare information. Samkörningen av dessa registerdata ger mer information än vad som kan fås ut av respektive registerkällor separat. Det går dessutom att koppla på annan information om anställda, omsättning och olika mått på lönsamhet från andra register.

Tillväxtanalys rekommenderar därför att SCB får tillgång till register gällande ägarandelar från Skatteverket under en längre tidsperiod än enbart de undersökta åren. Detta för att kunna sammanställa en databas som möjliggör bättre och mer precisa analyser av olika dimensioner av näringslivsdynamik och ägarförändringar. Det vore dessutom önskvärt att denna databas görs tillgänglig för forskning och studier som ökar kunskapen om olika dimensioner av näringslivets strukturomvandling.

Abstract [en]

The Swedish Agency for Growth Policy Analysis, Growth Analysis, was commissioned by the government to map and analyse changes in company ownership. The commission also included making comparisons between generation changes and other kinds of change in ownership that are not age-related and analyse the possibility to follow up companies’ ownership changes and dynamics over time. In October 2013, Growth Analysis submitted an interim report comprising both a survey of the age structure in the country’s companies and an in-depth analysis of ownership changes. The present report covers the final part of the commission, i.e. further development of the documentation of underlying data to identify changes in ownership.

Growth Analysis commissioned Statistics Sweden to investigate whether it would be possible to better identify changes in ownership by integrating and checking for matches in the complementary data concerning part-owners in close companies that can be obtained from the Tax Agency with existing information about company dynamics, which can be found in the Company and Workplace Dynamics register and the register-based labour market statistics at Statistics Sweden. In order to accomplish this, a study was made of the companies’ ownership changes between 2010 and 2011. The commission also includes describing the purpose, methodology and content of the Company and Workplace Dynamics register.

Some 80 percent of all companies survived between 2010 and 2011 regardless of the type of company. The remainder underwent some kind of change. Companies close and new ones start up as part of the structural change. We also see that many companies and workplaces change owners. Trade and industry shows significant dynamics and this covers many different kinds of change.

The processing of the data shows that by using Statistics Sweden’s and the Tax Agency’s registers, it is possible to adequately monitor and compile information about changes in company ownership. This applies to both close companies, where it is possible to follow individual ownership, and other corporate entities where changes in corporate identity number, which is an indication of new ownership circumstances, can be traced. The analysis shows that the Tax Agency’s registers complement Statistics Sweden’s registers well and provide additional information. The linking and matching of the data yields more information than can be obtained from each source separately. It is also possible to link in other information about employees, turnover and various measures of profitability from other registers.

Growth Analysis’ recommendation is therefore that Statistics Sweden should be given access to the Tax Agency’s registers concerning shares of ownership for a longer period than merely the years studied. This is to be able to compile a database that enables better and more exact analyses of various dimensions of dynamics in trade and industry and ownership changes to be made. It would also be desirable for this database to be made accessible for research and studies that increase knowledge of different dimensions of structural change in trade and industry.
