Title of Research: Competition and the Value of Voting Rights 

We aim to examine the impact of product market competition on the value of shareholder voting rights (i.e., voting premium) for the US public firms. We will estimate the voting premium using option prices following the method introduced in Kalay, Karakaş, and Pant (JF-2014). We conjecture that competition will decrease the voting premium, which is a lower bound for private benefits of control. To establish the causal effect of competition on voting premium, we will exploit exogenous shocks to competition. We also plan to investigate the role of common ownership in the relation between competition and voting premium.
