Abstract

Auch dreißig Jahre nach dem Artikel von Modigliani und Miller und zahllosen weiteren Veröffentlichungen ist die Frage zur Finanzierungsstruktur von Unternehmen weitgehend ungelöst. Dabei ist insbesondere in der empirischen Evidenz dieses Forschungsgebietes ein Defizit festzustellen. Unter Verwendung von Unternehmensdaten aus sieben europäischen Ländern werden in dieser Arbeit, für die beiden Rechtsformgruppen Aktiengesellschaften und Nicht- Aktiengesellschaften die Einflußfaktoren auf die Kapitalstruktur analysiert. Für die meisten der analysierten Länder - darunter Deutschland, Frankreich, Spanien und die Niederlande - können keine wesentlichen Unterschiede hinsichtlich der Determinanten der Kapitalstruktur von Aktiengesellschaften und Nicht-Aktiengesellschaften festgestellt werden. Nur in Großbritannien und Italien ließen sich erhebliche Unterschiede in den Einflußgrößen nachweisen.
