Secondary Privatization in Poland (Part I): Evolution of Ownership Structure and Company Performance in Firms Privatized by Employee Buyouts


The authors begin with a general discussion of MEBOs in Poland and go on to analyze ownership changes in a sample of such companies. First, they present the initial ownership structures created at the time of privatization and the evolution of those structures through 1999, and then go on to analyze the factors behind these changes and the relationships between the evolution of ownership structures on the one hand and economic performance and corporate governance on the other.
