    Abstract

    (VF)Afin d’apporter un nouvel éclairage aux études antérieures sur l’absence de réaction boursière à l’annonce publique d’un activisme actionnarial, cet article cherche à déterminer les aménagements organisationnels entrepris pour réduire la visibilité de la cause actionnariale. À partir d’un échantillon de 59 sociétés cotées sujettes au mécontentement d’actionnaires minoritaires de janvier 1989 à décembre 2000, nous cherchons à mesurer les effets de cette dissidence sur les mécanismes de gouvernance en fonction du degré d’influence exercé par la minorité d’actionnaires.(VA) Prior research shows that the absence of a significant market reaction at public announcement of shareholder activism is largely attributable to the weak visibility of conflict. For this reason we studied changes in corporate governance relevant to the visibility of conflict. From a sample of 59 listed companies with dissident shareholders between January 1989 and December 2000, we tried to measure the effects of shareholder activism on corporate governance according to the degree of influence of minority shareholders.
