We investigate whether the effects of antitakeover provisions(ATPs) on debtholder wealth vary across firms’ ownership structure. Using a regression discontinuity design, we find that loan spreadssignificantly decrease (increase) for family (nonfamily) firms after thepassage of close-call shareholder proposals to remove ATPs. The decrease (increase) in loanspreads is more evident when family firms (nonfamily firms) have lower (higher)asset substitution problems, when they face more (less) intense product marketcompetition, and when institutional shareholders hold smaller (larger)ownership. The results suggest that ownership structure is an important factorwhen assessing the impact of ATPs on debtholder wealth.
