Abstract

It has recently been acknowledged that all over the world, large shareholders control important parts of publicly traded companies. This dissertation tries to contribute to the existing literature by exploring particular aspects of large shareholders in market economies as well as transition economies. The first part is devoted to exploring the impact of different types of blockholders on market reaction to directors' dealings (insider trading) in the U.K. The second part analyzes the restructuring activities pushed forward by new private owners in voucher-privatized firms in the Czech republic shortly after the transfer of ownership.
