Corporate governance and safeguard of minority shareholders in Italy: theoretical analysis and empirical research
by Giuseppe Sancetta, Alessandro Gennaro
European J. of International Management (EJIM), Vol. 3, No. 1, 2009

Abstract: This paper analyses the relationship between governance systems and protection of minority shareholders, with the purpose of evaluating the contribution of governance systems to favouring a fair distribution of value to the shareholders of listed companies, regardless of the size of the share held. It should be considered that where governance actually protects minority shareholders, there should be an inverse correlation between compliance with best practices and majority premiums.
