In this part of the book, we investigate the practical characteristics of AGMs in an extensive empirical analysis. For this, we consider the turnout rates of AGMs of seven European Member States between 2010 and 2014 in this chapter. We show that, although there are large differences in total and small shareholder turnout rates among Member States, there is an overall increasing trend in the 2010–2014 period. In contrast to what economic theory predicts, a substantial and increasing part of small shareholders actually participate in AGMs.
