    Marginal q revisited2016In: Applied Economics, ISSN 0003-6846, E-ISSN 1466-4283, Vol. 48, no 1, p. 52-58Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Two measures of firm investment behaviour used in the empirical research are Tobin's q (average q) and marginal q. The marginal q is a more recently introduced measure than Tobin's q and is not as well known. This article aims to demonstrate the advantages of using marginal q as a performance measure and is a response to an earlier critical article (Berglund, 2011) claiming an elusiveness bias. The pro arguments made in response are that the claimed elusiveness is not a problem. Furthermore, many of the evaluation problems inherent in the empirical use of Tobin's q, like estimation of replacement cost of assets, can be avoided. From a pure theoretical standpoint, it has long been recognized that marginal q is superior to an average measure of investment behaviour such as Tobin's q.

    Swedish Patent Litigation Survey of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises2017In: Nordic Intellectual Property Review, ISSN 0027-6723, no 3, p. 234-248Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What are the opinions of small and medium-sized enterprises with experience of Swedish patent litigation? We offer description and analysis from a 2016 inter-view survey of nine small and medium-sized enterprises that had been involved in Swedish patent litigation on infringement and/or invalidity. Our results show that the companies are of the opinion that the proceedings were too slow and costly. They financed the litigation mainly with their own resources. Insur-ance played only a minor role. We also find that the proceedings seem to have affected their position in the market in terms of customers, suppliers and banks. Half the small and medium sized companies after the litigation had a reduced propensity to patent and almost all are less inclined to engage in future Swedish patent litigation.

    Ownership Dispersion and Capital Structures in Family Firms: A Study of Closed Medium-Sized Enterprises2012In: Journal of Small Business and Entrepreneurship, ISSN 0827-6331, E-ISSN 2169-2610, Vol. 25, no 2, p. 185-200Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Family firms are entities contribute greatly to all economies worldwide. In the following study we investigate capital structures and ownership dispersion among Swedish family firms. In order to find concluding results, we proceed with a regression between leverage and family business, leverage and family firm age, and leverage and ownership dispersion. Our regression outcomes support a U-shaped relationship between family ownership dispersion and leverage, but do not confirm a relation between leverage and family business. Earlier studies made in the field have generated differing results; however, there are some studies that are actually in line with our findings. A unique database developed at Jönköping University is used that enables us to obtain access to firm-level data. Earlier studies in the same genre have only had access to industry-level data.

    Property rights and the cost of capital2015In: European Journal of Law and Economics, ISSN 0929-1261, E-ISSN 1572-9990, Vol. 39, no 3, p. 523-537Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In countries with more secure property rights, the cost of capital is lower, suggesting higher investment rates. Using data from 49 countries we extend the conventional capital-asset pricing model (CAPM) to include a property rights risk-factor. In the conventional CAPM model only a single risk factor—systemic risk—is considered. However, when using a world market portfolio to estimate systemic risk in national portfolios, little of the required rate of return is explained in less developed as compared to more developed countries. Adding a factor representing institutional risk increases predictive power substantially. Further, we find that property rights affect the transmission of information, which suggests that markets price information differently, and allocate resources less efficiently, in countries with less secure property rights. We find that the CAPM model performs better in countries with more secure property rights.

    Institutional ownership and returns on investment2016In: Corporate Ownership & Control, ISSN 1727-9232, E-ISSN 1810-3057, Vol. 13, no 4Cont3, p. 419-430Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines how institutional investors influence investment decisions and returns on investment. To measure investment performance, we use marginal q, which measures the ratio of the return on investment to the cost of capital. Institutional owners are found to have a positive but marginally diminishing effect on performance. Our paper uses longitudinal data on Swedish firms from 1999 to 2005; during this period, the ownership structure of Swedish firms underwent dramatic changes as institutional investors increased their ownership shares, while ownership by Swedish households decreased. However, controlling owners - who were often founding families - maintained their control of firms by resorting to extensive use of dual-class shares. This was an important determinant of firm performance that eradicated the positive influence of institutional ownership.

    Ownership, Control and Performance in Swedish Listed Companies2004In: The Annual Conference of the International Society for New Institutional Economics: Tucson, Arizona, 2004, 2004Conference paper (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper contributes to the literature of ownership, control and performance by exploring these relationships for Swedish listed companies (1997-2002). A marginal q will be used as measures of economic performance. Marginal q was presented in an article by Mueller and Reardon in 1993 and has recently been used in empirical studies of ownership and performance by among others Gugler and Yurtoglu (2003). Frequently an average Tobin’s q is used in studies of this type, but Tobin’s q has a number of disadvantages which can be circumvented by employing a marginal q. In addition to marginal q estimations have been made with the valuation ratio as performance measure. The valuation ratio is interesting from a theoretical viewpoint, as it is an efficiency measure that plays a central role in Marris (1964) growth model of the firm. It is also easy to compute and is related to Tobin´s q. This study adds to earlier studies by using Swedish data with its specificities in form of pyramid ownership and a vote differential. The relationships between the two performance measures and different ownership characteristics like ownership concentration and foreign ownership is investigated. We find that firms, on average, are making inferior investment decisions and that the Swedish corporate governance system have some efficiency drawbacks.

    Are female leaders more efficient in family firms than in non-family firms?2018In: Corporate Governance : The International Journal of Effective Board Performance, ISSN 1472-0701, E-ISSN 1758-6054, Vol. 18, no 2, p. 185-205Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The aim of this study is to investigate whether female leaders are more efficient in family firms than in non-family firms.

    Design/methodology/approach: This paper uses a unique database of ownership and leadership in private Swedish firms that makes it possible to analyze differences in firm performance due to female leadership in family and non-family firms. The analysis is based on survey data merged with micro-level data on Swedish firms. Only firms with five or more employees are included in the analysis. The sample contains more than 1,000 firms.

    Findings: The descriptive statistics show that there are many more male than female corporate leaders. However, the regression analysis indicates that female leadership has a much more positive impact on the performance of family firms than on that for non-family firms, where the effect is ambiguous.

    Originality/value: Comparative studies examining the impact of female leadership on firm-level performance in family and non-family firms are rare, and those that exist are most often either qualitative or focused on large, listed firms. By investigating the role of female directors in family and non-family firms, the study adds to the literature on management, corporate governance and family firms.

    The Impact of Vote Differentiation on Investment Performance in Listed Family Firms2010In: Family Business Review, ISSN 0894-4865, E-ISSN 1741-6248, Vol. 23, no 4, p. 327-340Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates the effects of separation of ownership and control because of vote differentiation on listed family firms’ investment performance. The authors study the question of whether family-controlled firms have better investment performance than nonfamily firms and whether this investment performance is negatively affected by a separation of ownership and control because of vote differentiation. Marginal q is used as a performance measure. The empirical analysis shows that family control has a positive impact on investment performance when ownership and control are aligned, whereas separation of ownership and control in terms of vote-differentiated shares reduce investment performance.

    A contractual perspective on succession in family firms: a stakeholder view2014In: European Journal of Law and Economics, ISSN 0929-1261, E-ISSN 1572-9990, Vol. 38, no 2, p. 211-225Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses succession in family firms from a contractual perspective. A firm is regarded as a nexus of contractual relations with owners, employees, suppliers of goods and services and customers. These contractual parties are in differing degrees tied to the firm through asset specificities. Succession can affect the value of such assets. In this sense they become stakeholders with vested interests in the succession process. The theoretical discussion of affected stakeholdersis backed up by a survey study of 143 Swedish family-owned businesses that have been subject to succession. The results show that the opinions of close shareholders such as family members and incumbent mangers as well as those of other stakeholders such as suppliers and customers are important.

    Ownership Restrictions, Risk and Team Considerations in Family-owned Businesses2011In: European Business Law Review, ISSN 0959-6941, E-ISSN 1875-841X, Vol. 22, no 1, p. 93-105Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    At the start of a new business both team and risk aspects have to be considered in the choice of business form. The partnership form offers advantages in terms of team considerations while the corporate form provides limited liability which provides a way to handle the risk problems associated with owning a firm. The advantage of having a well synchronized team is important for many new firms and especially for cases where family relations are considered important. Seen from that angle the partnership form should be opted for. But risk is high up in the mind of founders. Events might unfold in an unexpected way and in the process the economy and well being of the family is at stake. The corporate form with limited liability is in this sense a very attractive choice that is commonly chosen. But with the corporate form comes transferability of ownership of shares without consent of other owners. The shareholder team might therefore change in an unexpected and unwelcome way. Therefore it is important to consider different types of transfer restrictions when a new corporate form of business is started. This aspect has not been much considered in practice and in the entrepreneurship literature. An accountant or a lawyer often has to remind an entrepreneur of the importance of stability in ownership positions.

    Large Listed Firms in Europe: Impact of legal tradition and ownership structure onperformance2009In: Europeisk integration i svensk ekonomisk forskning: SNEE:s 11 årliga konferens / [ed] Lars Oxelheim, 2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the impact of legal tradition and ownership on investment performance in large European listed firms. Europe is of special interest in this sense since the legal systems differs widely. Anglo Saxon, Scandinavian, German as well as French variants of legal systems can be found in representative forms in a concentrated geographical area. It is also interesting as the dispersed ownership pattern discussed and theoretized in much of the corporate governance literature is only common in Anglo Saxon countries. Most countries show a rather concentrated ownership of listed firms.

    This study differs from earlier studies by concentrating on large listed firms. These are firms in which shareholder protection should be most important for handling typical corporate governance problems. The results show in line with the expectations that performance is lower in these large firms. Somewhat unexpectedly the results also indicate that the Anglo Saxon legal system is no guarantee for good governance and importance. A possible explanation is that shareholder protection changes over time in a fashion that does not always follows legal origin demarcations.

    Legal Origin and Size Effects in European Listed Firms2010In: European Academy of Management, EURAM 10th annual conference: Back to the future, 2010Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the impact of legal tradition and firm size on investment performance for firms in 16 European countries. Europe as a region is of special interest since the legal systems differs widely. Anglo Saxon, German, French as well as Scandinavian variants of legal systems can be found in Europe. Previous studies suggest that minority shareholders enjoy a higher degree of property rights protection in common law (Anglo Saxon) countries compared to civil law (French, German and Scandinavian) countries. The cost of governance as a function of firm size is examined. We also look at expropriation of minority shareholders as a result of large organizations and hierarchies.This study differs from earlier studies by concentrating on the firm size and its effects on investment performance and by connecting it to the legal origin in each of the 16 European countries included in the study. For civil law countries we find, as expected, a negative relation between firm size and performance while there is no relation for common law countries. For individual countries, the effect of firm size and legal origin on investment performance is however ambiguous.

    The Impact of Investment Performance of Vote Differentiation in Family FirmsConference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the effects of separation of ownership and control due to vote differentiation on listed family firms’ investment performance. We study both the question whether family controlled firms have better investment performance than non-family firms and as to whether this investment performance is negatively affected by a separation of ownership and control due to vote differentiation. Marginal q is used as a performance measure. The empirical analysis shows that family control has a positive impact on investment performance when ownership and control are aligned while separation of ownership and control in terms of vote-differentiated shares lowers investment performance.
