The Effect of Staggered Boards on Stock Value

gainst the lively debate on whether a staggered board (SB) of directors hurts or benefits stockholders I present new evidence suggesting that in general, an SB has no significant effect on stock value. The evidence is based on the effects of two Delaware court rulings in 2010 in the case of Airgas on stock prices of Delaware companies that could be affected by these rulings. The October 8 ruling weakened the potency of the SB for companies that have their annual meeting late in the year and the November 23 decision restored its potency.
