  1. This table presents results of univariate analysis and logit regression of firm control transfer and whether an entrepreneur resigns from chairman or CEO positions. The sample includes 787 non-state IPO firms for the period 2006 to 2010 that have the post-IPO period of at least 5 years. Panel A presents the summary statistics on firm control transfer and whether an entrepreneur resigns from chairman or CEO positions for our treated sample of entrepreneurs with foreign residency rights and their control sample of entrepreneurs without foreign residency rights. Panel B reports the logit regression results for firm control transfer and whether an entrepreneur resigns from chairman or CEO positions. t-values are reported in parentheses. See Appendix for variable definitions
