What happens to companies that had been taken over through an LBO; how have they performed since the takeover; how have the communities been affected; what happened to companies that amassed tremendous debt to avoid being taken over? In order to address these questions in this report, case studies were done of the companies that experienced an LBO or a takeover attempt during the mid- to late 1980s. The assessment was based primarily on public documents and financial reports filed by the companies with the SEC.

Development processes occur within a wider geographical area than local government, and in some cases encompass a broader scope than provincial or national governments. Thus substantial inter-governmental co-operation and public-private partnership are needed. This book identifies how development agencies and companies work, what they do and what constitutes success and value added. It explores international practices in a variety of locations and contexts, and defines both the success factors and the challenges associated with economic development agencies and companies.

This publication examines how effectively boards manage to align executive and board remuneration with the longer-term interests of their companies. This is a major and ongoing issue in many companies and one of the key failures highlighted by the financial crisis. Aligning incentives seems to be far more problematic in companies and jurisdictions with a dispersed shareholding structure since, where dominant or controlling shareholders exist, they seem to act as a moderating force on remuneration outcomes.   The reader will learn about the effectiveness of boards in fulfilling their obligat
