Control ownership and acquisition regulation
An issue that has grown in importance in the corporate governance debate, is the shareholders’ involvement in listed companies’ governance, and in particular what regulatory measures can be taken to achieve increased ownership commitment. In this academic dissertation, this question is put in relation to the rules on public takeover bids in the stock market, with the aim of examining how these rules affect the conditions for shareholders to become involved in the management of the listed companies. The publication is written by Erik Lidman, who works as a researcher and teacher at the Department of Law at the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg, and is active within Corporate Governance Forum.
