Abstract

This study investigates whether family control affects the stock market reactions of new venturing. We found that with greater family control experienced more negative stock market reactions to venturing announcements. The results further indicated that the divergence of cash flow and voting rights was strongly and negatively correlated with announcement-period abnormal returns. The findings also indicated that institutional ownership had a significantly positive moderating effect suggesting that participation of institutional investors mitigated the negative influence of family control. The conclusions were robust under various measures of family control, and remained valid after controlling other influential factors for stock market reactions to venturing announcements.
