Abstract

Using a sample of 85 Chilean firms listed in the Santiago Stock Exchange from 2005 to 2013, we analyze the impact of corporate diversification on firm value. We consider voting rights of the main shareholder and the institutional investors influence on firm value. We report firm-value destruction for diversified firms. Regarding ownership structure, we report a negative relation between the largest shareholder ownership and firm value. Separation between voting rights and cash flows rights of this shareholder is negatively related to firm value. Pension Fund Administrators (AFP) mitigate firm value destruction in diversified firms. Other institutional investors do not play an active role to control value destruction. Finally, if the largest owner is a family, we report firm-value creation in diversified firms.

Keywords

Diversification, Shareholder ownership concentration, Firm Value.
