讲座题目:The dark side of strengthening minority shareholder voting power: an innovation perspective
摘要：Based on the regulatory reforms designed to strengthen the protection of legitimate rights and interests of minority investors in 2014 in China, we investigate minority shareholders’ short-termism and the dark side of strengthened minority voting power after the reforms. We find that strengthened minority voting power negatively impacts innovation outputs as measured by both invention patent and utility model patent counts. We show that the reduced innovation outcomes cannot be explained by the weakened monitoring from major shareholders associated with high ownership dispersion. Moreover, strengthened minority voting power helps enhance the target vesting earnings growth rate in executive incentive plans and top executive turnover-performance sensitivity, which in turn undermine innovation. Finally, the negative impact of minority voting power on innovation is particularly pronounced for firms with non-entrenched managers and a lower percentage of ownership by pressure resistant institutions.
