Aspects of Corporate Governance

Aspects of Corporate Governance

The subject of Corporate Governance is attracting increased attention among policy makers, practitioners, scholars and investors. Essentially the discussion centers on the regulatory framework that influences the allocation and monitoring of corporate resources. By simultaneous use of economic theory and law, corporate governance addresses a most vital aspect of the functioning of the market economy especially in times of rapid international integration and changes in ownership structures.
This book contains the proceedings from an international symposium arranged by CGF in 1993. The contributions cover the origin and development of the corporate governance debate in the US and give an overview of the empirical situation and present debate in some European countries.

Does Sweden Need a Mandatory Bid Rule?: A Critical Analysis

Does Sweden Need a Mandatory Bid Rule?: A Critical Analysis

During the past decade, proposals have been made to introduce a mandatory bid rule in the Swedish stock market. Under such a rule, anyone who secures a certain percentage of the voting rights of a listed company would be forced to extend a takeover bid for the company’s remaining shares.
In this book, Rolf Skog – one of Sweden’s leading experts in corporate governance – provides a background of the debate along with a summary of mandatory bid rules in various countries. He also gives a critical analysis of the arguments for and against a mandatory bid rule and advises against its introduction in Sweden. This is a book that should be of interest in any country where corporate governance issues are part of the public debate.
