• Growth patterns of the European venture capital industry

      Ooghe, Hubert; Manigart, Sophie; Fassin, Yves (Journal of Business Venturing, 1991)
      The importance of the venture capital industry in the major European countries is examined, and funding and investment patterns are investigated. The data are mainly, but not solely, taken from the yearly statistics of the European Venture Capital Association and cover the period 1984-1989. It is shown that nearly half (44%) of the European investments are made in the expansion stage, management buyouts account for another 36%. Only 14% is invested in seed or start-up companies, much less than the 30% in the US. Half of the venture capital investments in the UK are buyouts. The highest start-up investment activity takes place in Austria and Spain. Cluster analyses indicate that characteristics of mature industries are: 1. a bigger size, relative to the gross national product of the country, 2. the presence of pension funds and insurance companies as investors in the industry, 3. the syndication of the deals, and 4. the absence of the government as an investor.

    • Guest Editorial for ‘Management and the Future of Open Collaboration’

      Gorbatai, Andreea; Jemielniak, Dariusz; O'Neil, Mathieu (Journal of Organizational Change Management, 2016)
      Open collaboration gained prominence as a practice with the advent of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) communities in the 1980s. Since then, technological advances have enabled individuals, firms and communities to implement applications relying on large-scale, open collaboration. Open collaboration research is a field of rapid growth in organizational theory and innovation. Initial work in this area has focused on the management and governance of FOSS projects as well as on a wide range of user communities in fields as different as sports, scientific equipment users and manufacturers, library information systems, computer games, and medical equipment. Another research stream has focused on open innovation from a corporate perspective, studying the ways in which traditional organizations can harness the power of communities to innovate, or on the creation of 'boundary' or 'hybrid' organizations that facilitate collaboration between open-source communities and firms. Yet another stream has examined open collaboration platforms, particularly the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, assessing participation processes and collaboration outcomes in this particular setting. Finally a more critical stream of research has characterized open collaboration both negatively, as ‘prosumption’ in which labor is transferred from workers to consumers, thereby generating new means of exploitation; or positively, as the ‘germ form’ of a post-capitalist society where exchange value will disappear altogether.

    • Guide to listing in Belgium

      Van den Cruijce, Johan; Santens, Hilde; Janssens de Bisthoven, Nicolas; Šadic Herzberger, Emina (2020)
      The purpose of this Guide is to outline specific issues and (continuing) obligations a listed company may be confronted with in Belgium. The point of reference for this Guide is the position of a Belgian issuer that is listed on Euronext Brussels. A listing on Euronext Brussels is subject to more conditions and ongoing obligations than an admission to trading on any other market in Belgium. An understanding of the organisation and functioning of Euronext Brussels will thus – if and when relevant – help in understanding the regulatory framework of other trading venues in Belgium. The Guide deals with corporate governance and pays attention to the obligations and status of directors and executive managers, to select finance and tax topics and to opportunities for employee participation. The Guide also covers the reasons and procedures for a possible de-listing. This is an issue that may become relevant to any listed company and experience has shown that institutional investors and corporate governance rating agencies are keen to gain an understanding of the rights and obligations of the various players in this context. This expanded 2020 edition includes matters of secretarial practice, compliance and valuation. Updates in the book take into account the provisions of the Code on Companies and Associations and the 2020 version of the Belgian Code on Corporate Governance. This Guide is conceived as a quick-reference document. All chapters can be consulted separately and the notes allow the reader to find additional information on the topics and issues discussed. The contents of this book reflect only the authors’ opinions, which are not necessarily shared by Atlas Services Belgium or the group to which it belongs.

    • Hampering the change: Consequences of the CEO's strategic commitment under managerial discretion

      Behr, Henning; Fehre, Kerstin (Academy of Management Proceedings, 2015)
      CEOs play a central role for the strategic outcomes of their firms. Although research has provided many insights about the factors determining CEOs' openness toward strategic changes, the consequences of these attitudes have not been sufficiently investigated. To assess the consequences of willingness for change at the CEO level, we used the concepts of Commitment to the Status Quo (CSQ) (i.e., the belief in the enduring correctness of current strategies) and evaluate its effects for strategic persistence under the moderating role of managerial discretion. Our sample is based on 178 publicly traded firms in Germany over 10 years. Our results show that CSQ at the CEO level is crucial for strategic development only in situations of sufficiently high managerial discretion. Namely, a significant impact of the CEO's mental attitude is observable only in scenarios with high product differentiability, high market growth, bad past performance, or small companies.
