Minority and majority private equity investments: firm performance and governance

Minority and majority private equity investments: firm performance and governance This paper adds to the literature on the determinants of the effects of private equity (PE) investments. Using an original dataset of 191 target firms in Italy, we study the effects on performance and governance of the stakes acquired by the PE investor. We employ a difference-in-differences approach and compare target and control firms sharing similar characteristics and performance in the years preceding the deal. We find that PE investment has a positive effect on profitability, sales, and employment; these effects are larger for minority investments. We argue that this signals effective governance that follows from complementing rather than substituting incumbent managers in minority investments. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Management & Governance Springer Journals
