This paper examines the ownership structure and defence measures of Spanish listed companies, to determine the identity and equity stakes of their key shareholders and the extent of their takeover protection. Among its most striking findings is the power exercised by family groups, which at end 2002 controlled 52.7 percent of non financial listed companies. On the defensive front, the study detected a clear trend towards greater use of anti-takeover measures.
