Abstract:     
This paper, using 833 observations of listed Japanese firms between the years 1992 to 2000, explore the implications of the free cash flow hypothesis concerning the disciplinary role of ownership structure in corporate capital structure policy. The results show (1) the sensitivity of ownership structure to leverage depends on growth opportunities and free cash flow. (2) Keiretsu classification affects relations between ownership structure and leverage. Overall, the results generally support the free cash flow hypothesis.
