Specifically, exogenous legal changes that increased (decreased) the relative advantage of voting shares vis-a-vis non-voting shares regarding tag along rights increased (decreased) DCP in Brazil.
Among other new clauses, it partially reinstated tag along rights for voting shares, assuring minority voting shareholders an offer of at least 80% of the price paid for control block shares.
Hypothesis 1: Law 9.457/1997, which excluded tag along rights for minority voting shareholders, had a negative impact on DCP.
Hypothesis 2: Law 10.303/2001, 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:
Both results are consistent with the predictions based on tag along rights granted for voting shares (100% under Law 6.404/1976, 0% under Law 9.457/1997, and 80% and Law 10.303/2001), which changed the relative advantage of voting shares vis-a-vis non-voting shares.
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 6.404/1976 and Law 9.457/1997 dummies positively and negatively related with DCP, respectively; iii) larger liquidity of voting shares vis-a-vis non-voting positively associated with larger DCP; iv) firm size negatively correlated with DCP; and, v) the concentration of voting rights and cash flow rights held by controlling shareholders negatively correlated with DCP.
