Abstract

The 1998 Asian Financial Crisis and more recent corporate scandals in the U.S. have triggered growing attention of researchers and policy makers on the agency problem between controlling shareholders and minority investors. One respect of this problem is private benefits of control. In this paper, we extend the findings in Dyck and Zingales (2004) and show that the degree of investor protection still matters in curbing private control benefits for the period 1999–2007. More importantly, we find that private benefits of control have decreased significantly over time. Finally, our analyses show weak evidence of differential decreases in the value of control between weak and strong investor protection countries.
