457/1997, which excluded tag along rights for minority voting shareholders, had a negative impact on DCP.
303/2001, which partially reinstated tag along rights only for minority voting shareholders, had a positive impact on DCP.
Hypothesis 3: The voluntary granting of tag along rights for both voting and non-voting shares, or exclusively for non-voting shares, had a negative impact on DCP.
Besides the five main hypotheses related to the mandatory and voluntary granting of tag along rights, and the type of controlling shareholders, we also developed other hypotheses usually tested in the related DCP literature:
Dual Class Premium [DCP]; DIF_LIQ--liquidity differential between voting and nonvoting shares (proxied by LIQvol or LIQneg variables alternatively); DIF_DIV--dividend differential between voting and non-voting shares; ON_conc--controlling shareholder stake of voting shares; TS_conc--controlling shareholder stake of total shares; RAT_ON--ratio of voting shares to total shares outstanding; InTA--firms' size (proxied by Total Assets); LEVER--Financial leverage; LAW6404, LAW9457, and LAW 10303--dummy variables associated with validity of tag along clauses enacted by laws 6.
Both results are consistent with the predictions based on tag along rights granted for voting shares (100% under Law 6.
Table 4 shows statistically significant (at 1% level) correlations of several explanatory variables with DCP in line with our hypothesis: i) the voluntarily granting of tag along rights negatively correlated with DCP; ii) Law 6.
For the remaining variables (firms' size, financial leverage, and voluntary granting of tag along rights), we did not find a significant result after performing FE regressions.
On the other hand, our results do not offer conclusive support for the hypotheses that: H3--the voluntary granting of tag along rights negatively influences DCP; H5--state-owned control reduces DCP; H10--there is a quadratic relationship between financial leverage and DCP; and, H11--a firm's size negatively influences the level of DCP.
This paper aimed to analyze the evolution and potential determinants of the so-called dual class premium in Brazil from 1995 to 2006 with a focus on two specific corporate governance aspects: the granting of tag along rights, and the identity of the controlling shareholders.
Specifically, exogenous legal changes regarding tag along rights that increased (decreased) the relative advantage of voting shares increased (decreased) DCP in Brazil.
Overall, our paper contributes to this line of research in terms of: i) scope--the inclusion of the identity of controlling shareholders as an explanatory factor of DCP); ii) methodology--analysis of recent data collected for a long time span by panel data techniques; and, iii) results--positive influence of family control on DCP and different results regarding the voluntary granting of tag along rights.
