Dual Directors And The Governance Of Corporate Spinoffs, Emilie R. Feldman 2016 University of Pennsylvania

Dual Directors And The Governance Of Corporate Spinoffs, Emilie R. Feldman

While the presence of dual directors is positively associated with the average stock market returns of parent and spinoff firms, their presence is also increasingly positively associated with parent firm performance, but increasingly negatively associated with spinoff firm performance as the share of sales a spinoff firm makes to its parent firm rises. These findings show that, while dual directors give a parent ...

Thin But Not Anorexic: Copyright Protection For Compilations And Other Fact Works, David E. Shipley

Journal of Intellectual Property Law
