Tarcísio Pedro da Silva, Maurício Leite, Jaqueline Carla Guse, Tania Cristina Chiarello


The study examined the relationship of ownership concentration in the economic and financial performance of publicly traded Latin American companies possessing American Depository Receipts (ADRs). Generally, the capital structure decisions are tied directly to the results of the organizations, thus reflecting the economic and financial performance. The correlation between the set of variables within the group of ownership structure with the group of economic and financial performance showed significant correlation with the linear combinations, when analyzed in the set of all the samples of companies and taken separately by country. However, the results did not show similar correlation to Venezuela, Colombia and Peru due to the existence of few observations. The results also portrayed a significant correlation within economic and financial performance, higher to Mexican companies, when compared with the results of other countries and among the set of the two groups of variables that highlighted the analysis by ownership structure and economic and financial performance as well.
