This chapter comments on the study presented in Chapter 16, which examined the impact that the decision to reincorporate as a European Company or SE has on the share price of companies, and what benefits the SE offers to corporate investors. It raises additional questions such as: To what extent does the data show an attitude towards the specific issue of co-determination? And can conclusions be drawn on possible benefits for other stakeholders, not only the shareholders that are represented in this study? In any event, the empirical study on the SE is considered pioneering work and a great first step towards the understanding of the value of this legal form and optional legal forms altogether.
