Restructuring of insider-dominated firms
AbstractUsing enterprise survey data for 1995-97, the author studies and compares how different modes of privatizing to insiders affect enterprise restructuring in two former Soviet republics, Georgia and Moldova. Restructuring in companies in which incumbent managers received significant ownership stakes for free was similar to that in companies that were still state-owned. By contrast, restructuring was faster in companies bought by their managers. The author interprets these results as suggesting that managers'incentives to restructure decrease when they regard their newly acquired ownership as a windfall gain.
