2 Specialization and territorial concentration of the largest Spanish firms and groups, 1964 to 2010 Paloma Fernández Pérez 1 ABSTRACT Family firms are the dominant form of business ownership. However, very little work has been done to analyze the most appropriate methodologies for studying family firms from a long-term perspective, in a collective aggregated way. The main goal of this study is to reduce this gap in family business literature. A new methodology is proposed to analyze family businesses in Spain between the 1960s and the beginning of the 21st century. The results show: a) the initial central role of Madrid and the Basque provinces, b) the rise in importance of other peripheral regions after the 1980s, c) the renewed power of Madrid as center of Spanish large family capitalism in the first decade of the 21st century. Additionally: d) the endurance of some dynasties; and e) the evolution of economic specialization.

3 Specialization and territorial concentration of big Spanish dynasties, from 1964 to Introduction 2 Work on the history of large industrial and financial corporations in Spain, from an aggregated perspective, is already widely available (Carreras y Tafunell 1993 y 2005, Rubio-Mondéjar and Garrués-Irurzun 2012), but not much has been published on the collective history of large family business (whether corporate or not) in the various Spanish industries and services (Fernández y Puig 2007). It is an extremely difficult task where we have few comparative attempts so far in other countries in order to get some methodological inspiration (Colli and Larsson 2014). The present work proposes a new methodology for the long-term study of the largest family-controlled businesses or groups in Spain that can maybe inspire efforts for international comparisons. In contrast to previous publications about large family businesses in Spain, uses sources from before the 1970s, and combines them with later sources for a diversity of years between the 1980s and 2010, in order to acquire a more complete and long-term perspective of the evolution of the elite of family capitalism in Spain. By using these sources, we attempt to overcome the limitations imposed by those usually employed in studies of large business in Spain (i.e. Corporate Annual Directories), particularly the exclusion of non-corporate companies and the undervaluation of businesses involved in trade and industry of consumer goods (Carreras y Tafunelll 2005). Family businesses have traditionally shied away from becoming corporate, and are world leaders in the sector of commercial distribution and production of consumer goods, as this paper demonstrates, both valid reasons for why the corporate annual directories prove to be an inappropriate source for studying large family-owned firms, the dominant form of 2 This research has relied on technical assistance from Jaime A. López G. (PhD student at the University of Barcelona) and Saskia Portillo. Also, from funds from an ICREA Academia award.
4 business ownership in the world today (Fernández Pérez y Colli, eds., 2013, y Fernández Pérez 2012). Based on the assumption that no homegenous source exists that can identify and compare the largest family firms throughout the last 60 years, sources have been selected that include various indicators (the most appropriate for each historical moment, with the aim of capturing the elite of largest family firms) in order to meticulously build up, for each selected year, an estimated ranking of the largest family firms at each historical moment, their sector of activity, and their location (of head office). The comparisons are made with simple indicators, such as year of creation and/or founding of the company, its sectorial activity (grouping the relevant data from each source in categories specified by the United Nations), and the indicators of size (employment, own resources, sales) available for each year that allow companies from all sectors to be included. The flexible selection criteria of sources allow the construction of databases that compare territorial and temporal aspects of the largest Spanish family firms and groups, by province, between 1964 and 2010, thus showing how the changing keys to longevity and competitiveness are clearly related to big changes in the market and in politics, such as integration into the European market, the establishment of policies favourable to promoting winners on an autonomous and national scale, and the organization of business associations for the largest family firms in the country. Work on the influence of these changes has already been published (Fernández Pérez y Puig 2007, Tápies 2009). This paper will present new data and new results on the changing keys to longevity and competitiveness of large family capitalism in Spain, on a national, regional, and sectorial level. 2. Hypothesis First, this work is based on the assumption that the available research into the history of large business in Spain, which has used sources that focus on corporations, tends to a) exclude large family businesses that are not corporations, and b) minimalize the representation of companies and groups in the trade and industry of consumer goods these rarely being corporate and thus not appearing in the incomplete annual corporate registers so often used as source material (Carreras y Tafunelll 1993). Second, in order to re-balance this problem of finding a source that best covers large business in Spain in the 20th century, a hypothesis is put forward that proposes the
5 need to select not one source for various decades, but rather to pick out those sources for each selected year that quantitively best capture the large firms in Spain, corporate or not, from all industrial and service sectors. In the 1960s, Spanish authorities determined that the best indicator gleaned from the registers for this purpose was that of employment (because, according to Rodríguez Sahagún, the large companies were generally very labor-intensive and concealed accounting information, as claimed in the first edition of Actualidad Económica, 1974). For later years, the indicators used were sales (in the sector of commercial distribution or similar) and own resources (in sectors with larger fixed capital such as capital goods industry or finance). Thirdly, anoter hypothesis is put forward that comparisons should be made with comparable data, and for this reason, size comparisons between businesses and groups were based on index numbers and percentages, in order to compare the different years and the specialization of activity in these different years. Fourthly, the company s head office was established as the criteria for territorial location, being that the place where strategic decisions are normally taken - decisions that influence not only the present, but also the future of the business. Since the aims of the study were to identify the keys to longevity and competitiveness, it was this criteria that was adopted for determining the territorial location of a business, without forgetting that there may be multiple production or commercial branches located far from the head office. 3. Methodology A database for Spanish family businesses was put together for the years 1964, 1969, 1976, 1986, 1989, 1998, 2005 and 2010; based on the selection and evaluation of companies that presented family characteristics connected with the owner, strategic senior management positions, or number of generations; excluded were firms in which only the founder was present, and the definition of business group 3 was understood as a union of independent businesses under centralized control. During the development of the database and its subsequent analysis, with which Paloma Fernández had valuable technical assistance from Jaime López Guauque and 3 The Oxford Handbook of Business History.

6 Saskia Portillo, two main secondary sources were used for the selection of the sample of family businesses: the Catálogo Provincial de Actividades Económicas (Provincial Catalogue of Economic Activities) of the Trade Union Service of Statistics for the year 1964, and the journal Actualidad Económica for the other years of research (1969, 1976, 1986, 1989, 1998, 2005 and 2010). In addition to the two main secondary sources for the sample of family businesses in Spain, we relied on information from the Financial and Corporate Annual Registers, with the aim of comparing the information with reference to business ownership and membership of the Executive Board, thus assuring a strict analysis and classification of the businesses, establishing the selection criteria of the sample a priori. The sources sometimes gave information only on businesses, and sometimes on businesses and groups; other times no discrimination was made and only business or group was mentioned. The database respected this difference in typology for the data input. For the classification of family firm or group, the flexible definition was adopted, predominantly used in business management literature, whereby the control of the company s strategy is considered fundamental (Sharma and Salvato in Fernández Pérez and Colli eds. 2013), control which is measured (company by company and group by group) by control of property (with various parameters according to the sector of activity and whether trading on the stock market or not) and/or management (with the presence of at least two members of the same family on the Board of Directors). Below is an explanation of the two procedures used, including information on sources, for the selection of the analysis sample: a) Sample from the Provincial Catalogue of Economic Activities from the Trade Union Service of Statistics (1964) The Provincial Catalogue of Economic Activities from the Trade Union Service of Statistics published in 1964 gathers information on the various work centers or businesses that had a minimum of 50 (fifty) people on its payroll (at the moment of data collection). The Provincial Catalogue of Economic Activities follows the national system of classification of economic activity into groups of three digits, as well as presenting the relation of the centers to its economic activity, by region and alphabetically. This system aimed, firstly, to present the information on economic activity by region and, secondly, to follow the numeration of the classification of groups
7 of economic activity, thus facilitating a rapid recognition of the specific economic activity of each center. The Provincial Catalogue collects information on 9,526 (nine thousand five hundred and twenty six) work centers or businesses. The procedure for the selection of the sample for 1964 involved the following steps: 1) The control variable for the choice of business was number of employees. 2) Work centers or businesses with more than 1,000 (one thousand) employees were selected, excluding national businesses, foreign businesses and those that available case studies had confirmed as being non-family-controlled. 3) Work centers or businesses were eliminated if they were present in more than one sector of economic activity with the same number of workers, thus avoiding duplication of the information. 4) All work centers or businesses that had the same name and were not present in more than one economic activity were grouped together and the number of workers counted, thus obtaining the total number of workers for each work center or business. 5) As a result of points 1, 2, 3, and 4, a first sample of 275 work centers or businesses with 1,000 workers or more was obtained from the total of 9,526, representing 2.9% of the total. 6) From the 275 work centers or businesses with more than 1,000 workers, the sample was cross-checked for possible duplicates, resulting in a new sample of 140 potentially family-run work centers or businesses; the information for each of these was then checked individually. 7) The verification of family control for these work centers or businesses was made in two stages: a) The Financial and Corporate Year Register of Spain and the Financial Year Register of Bilbao were consulted. Through information from the Boards of Directors, it was verified that at least two (2) directors had family ties. b) In those cases where no information on members of the Board of Directors or the presence of family members in Management was available in either of the Year Registers, other published sources were used to check information. 8) After verification of the family businesses, there remained a final total sample of 42 (forty two) work centers or businesses with over 1,000 employees.
8 9) The following diagram represents the steps taken for the selection of the sample for 1964: 9, Work centers or businesses with more than 50 workers Family-controlled work centers or businesses with more than 1,000 workers Work centers or businesses with more than 1,000 workers were selected Final sample Work centers or businesses with more than 1,000 workers Possible duplicates were eliminated Potencially family-controlled work centers or businesses with more than 1,000 workers Source: own elaboration 10) From the result of the final sample, forty two (42) businesses were obtained, of which forty (40) work centers or businesses were Corporations, and two (2) Non- Corporate and Private Enterprises, the latter being Limited Liability Companies. 11) Finally, the classification of the Unions to which each work center or business belonged was adapted to the sectorial classification according to the United Nations (ISIC Rev.4 International Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic Activities). (access November 2011). b) Sample of Economic Activity (1969, 1976, 1986, 1989, 1998, 2005 and 2010) Secondly, a database of Spanish family businesses was prepared, taken from yearly information published in the journal Actualidad Económica 4, related to the world of business and companies in Spain. 4 Actualidad Económica, also known as La Económica in journalistic circles, was founded in 1958 by the publishing group Sarpe (Sociedad Anónima de Revistas, Periódicos y Ediciones). It was used as a reliable
9 The procedure taken for the selection of the sample involved the following steps: Firstly, in order to evaluate the reliability and critical use of the journal Actualidad Económica: a) Our periods of analysis are the years 1969, 1976, 1986, 1989, 1998, 2005 and b) The ranking published by the journal appears in the last trimester of the following year, i.e. the information on period t is published in the year t+1. c) Two control variables were considered for the selection of the analysis sample: for the years 1969, 1976 and 1986 the level of own resources 5 was used; while the level of sales 6 was used for the years 1989, 1998, 2005 and d) As a result of changes over time in the number of businesses comprising the ranking, as well as in the consultancy firm contracted by Actualidad Económica to evaluate and supply the information, we present the criteria of Actualidad Económica for the preparation of the ranking for each year analyzed. e) Corporations of financial intermediation are not included, since the source does not allow identification of those controlled by entrepreneurial families. f) Criteria of the journal Actualidad Económica for the preparation of the ranking: Table 1. Criteria of Ranking of the journal Actualidad Económica Year Criteria of Ranking of the journal Actualidad Económica The sample corresponds to 100 large Spanish businesses, classified by own resources source for the quantitive study of longevity and specialization of family firms in Spain in in Fernández y Puig 2007 and Tàpies (http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/actualidad_econ%c3%b3mica Access 21 March 2012) 5 Own resources was used as a selection criteria because the source (Actualidad Económica) established it as the criteria for its ranking system, and also because the information on sales is discontinuous and no data on employees is provided. 6 For the years 1989, 1998, 2005 and 2010; the source (Actualidad Económica) prepares the ranking based on level of sales. 7 Actualidad Económica.

AE selected the businesses according to data from Technical Information on Credit (Incresa) 11. After the businesses were selected for ranking, they were contacted by Actualidad Económica to obtain their approval of the data available in Incresa The Ranking of the 5,000 businesses and groups in Spain was prepared by Equifax Ibérica through Incresa. AE, the businesses with highest sales were selected. The information obtained by AE from Incresa is product of two mailing lists (direct mail) to the 10,000 industrial and service businesses selected The ranking was prepared by Actualidad Económica in collaboration with Iberinform 14. Iberinform prepared the ranking of active businesses with capital above 500,000 euros or revenue over 15 million euros. Iberinform prepared a ranking of groups, selecting those with a consolidated balance sheet in 2004 or 2005 and those presenting themselves as a business group in the surveys conducted for the ranking. 8 Actualidad Económica.

11 Iberinform selected almost 13,000 corporations and 3,000 group heads. Iberinform contacted the businesses by fax, telephone, and mail. Iberinform compared and contrasted the information supplied by the businesses with the information from the Trade Register, used by Iberinform to prepare the ranking. Iberinform notifies that in most cases the data corresponds to 2005 and the rest to Iberinform begins to prepare the 2011 edition of the ranking of the 5,000 largest businesses and the 1,000 largest business groups in Spain for Actualidad Económica for the year Iberinform selects those businesses in its database that presented in the Trade Register a balance sheet with revenue above 30 million euros in Iberinform selects the largest business groups with consolidated accounts presented in the Trade Register, chosing those with consolidated revenue above 35 million euros. The total number of companies selected by Iberinform is almost 9,000 businesses with the greatest turnover and 2,000 largest groups. Iberinform requests the information available in the Trade Register from 2009 and contacts all the businesses for confirmation of the data from 2010, necessary for preparation of the Ranking - edition In case a company does not provide information for 2010, Iberinform includes the data obtained from public sources or the turnover from Iberinform establishes 31 August 2011 as the deadline for incorporating information to the Ranking.

12 As mentioned previously, the years 1969, 1976, 1986, 1989, 1998, 2005 and 2010 were selected for the study. The information supplied by Actualidad Económica varies in the size of its data, therefore the sample was chosen according to the following criteria: a) The information from Actualidad Económica is presented for business groups as well as for businesses; however, for the years 1969, 1976 and 1986 this differentiation did not exist, and for 1989, despite being classified, they were not presented separately.. b) For 1969, 1976 and 1986, the source only has information for one hundred (100) Spanish businesses and/or groups. The criteria applied by the source in order to prepare the ranking was the variable of own resources of each business. Therefore, we studied the total sample to evaluate and select those businesses which were family-controlled. For the years 1989, 1998, 2005 and 2010, given that the sample sizes of the source (Actualidad Económica) varied, the top 200 businesses and 200 groups were evaluated, according to the ranking already established by the source, using level of sales as indicator, thus allowing identification of family-run businesses. c) Based on the demarcation of selection criteria for the Analysis Base, the following number of groups/businesses were selected in order to evaluate how many and which fulfilled the criteria of family group/business (see Table 2).

13 as in independent businesses or group heads, thus obtaining the Sample Family- Controlled in the Analysis Base, which becomes our study objective within the context of the behaviour and evolution of Spanish family businesses (see Table 3).

The exchange rates used were the following: Peseta - US$ 70,0 66,90 140,05 118,38 149,4

Results A dynamic comparative analysis is presented of large Spanish business families and large family businesses from the last five decades ( ). It provides a perspective on the fabric of Spanish family business, giving a descriptive focus on each of the years on which the study centers. The family business elite has maintained a decisive and dominant role in the Spanish economy, as well as establishing the prevailing form of business structure, and provides a framework of study in the face of continual social and ideological changes and changes in market development occuring throughout history. The present work provides evidence related to the specialization of Spanish family-run businesses and the power of the business elites in the last five decades. Growth in the service sector has been more dynamic than in the industrial sector among large family businesses.this is something usually overlooked in Spanish economic history, or mainstream Spanish business history, as most quantitative data about large businesses so far took into account listed companies, among whom family controlled ones were above all in industrial specializations. By taking into account flexible criteria in the long term, using employment when companies were labor intensive, and revenues when this was a vastly available indicator for large and small 16 ISIC Rev.4 (International Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic Activities). United Nations ISIC Classification 4. (access November 2011)
15 companies in Spain, services appear as one of the most important economic branches in which large family businesses have accumulated resources and know-how, and have been resilient. The Spanish business elite comprises the construction and engineering sector, followed by trade and auxiliary services; and to a lesser extent the sectors of food, beverages and mining. Table 4 shows the families that have maintained their prominant position in the elite of Spanish business; particularly noteworthy are: the Entrecanales family (Acciona), from the construction and engineering sector, who remained in top positions throughout the whole period analyzed, five decades; the families Huarte (Huarte y Cia), Pino (Ferrovial), and Koplowitz (FCC), also from the sector of civil engineering and construction, who were present almost half the time of the Entrecanales family mentioned above; another group within the same range of permanence and representing diverse industrial and service sectors corresponds to the families Serratosa (Valenciana de cementos), Echeverría (Patricio Echeverria S.A.), Ortega (Inditex), Álvarez (El corte inglés), Roig (Mercadona), Riberas (Gonvarri Industrial), Polanco-Pérez (Sogecable- Prisa), Fernández (Galerías Preciados), Cros (Cros). The list also shows a significant number of families (75%) who have remained in the elite for up to two periods of the years covered in the study. The table refers to families controlling groups as well as businesses, that were among the top 20 family G/F (groups and firms) for no more than one year; the proxy was calculated with the assumption that the G/F remained at the top of the ranking in the years not covered by the study.

Table 5 presents data on the longevity of the largest family businesses. The group of longest-standing businesses is not very apparent over the years studied; there is a high concentration of young businesses rising up at the beginning of the 1970s, a fact also reflected in the average age for each of the analyzed periods. It is notable that in 1964, the majority of businesses were older than 60, that is to say, they had been created at the beginning of the century. This situation remained the same until 1976, when the number of young companies at the top of the ranking increased. It can be confirmed that the groups were consolidated and managed to overcome the various adversities, as is clearly seen in the young groups, that saw a 5% growth between 2005 and It can be affirmed that other factors linked to longevity can determine business success; not only experience plays a role in productivity, as proven by the small number of longstanding businesses that occupy prominent positions. Three large business groups can be differentiated by longevity (average of the sample); the longest-standing groups are found in the provinces of Cádiz, Cantabria, Castellón and Asturias, with an average age of over 90; a second group aged between 60 and 90 are found in Sevilla, Vizcaya (Biscay), Salamanca, Guipúzcoa, Barcelona and Navarra; and a last group that corresponds to young businesses aged between 60 and 30, found in the provinces of Madrid, Lleida, Valencia, Burgos, Teruel, Coruña, Pontevedra and Balearic Islands. The longest-standing businesses in the years studied (among the largest familyrun businesses on the register of total largest businesses of Spain) are: Osborne y Cia, González Byass (Cádiz), both in alcoholic beverages industries as in Japan or Germany, oldest businesses thus are in the manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages!-; Erkimia, Torras Hostench, DAMM (Barcelona) in chemical industries, papermaking and beer industry; Banco Santander (Cantabria), Berge y Cia (Biscay) and Fábrica de Mieres (Asturias) in mining and steel industries.

22 The sectors in which enduring large family businesses predominated, in 1964, corresponded to base metals (64%), coal extraction (12%), engineering works (15%), and to a lesser extent the sectors of papermaking, leather, textile and mining. Over the years, a constant attraction of top families in businesses in the country is seen in activities of civil engineering, retail trade, textile, tailoring, leather and services to businesses. The growth of both groups and businesses remained parallel. Traditional activities such as the chemical industry, paper, food and mining lost their dominant position in the most recent periods, with an increase in local services. There is a greater diversity in the dominant activities in recent times: in 1998 the family business groups were involved in activities in the hotel and tourist sector, logistics, machine manufacturing, publishing, security, IT and communication. Concerning independent businesses, these sectors only became dominant in later years, the majority being registered in 2005 and In 2010, the dominant businesses are found in the sectors of gas and energy, vehicle manufacturing, air transport, and travel agencies, but have yet to enter the sectors of machine manufacturing, security, IT and communications, these being activities dominated by business groups; the shift from conservative sectors to the more strategic sectors is very apparent.

Beverages A high geographical density of large business families can be seen across the Spanish territory; for 1964, two large blocks are discernible: one focused on the Northern Cantabrian coast, the other along the coast of the Mediterranean, both peripheral areas of Spain; another block corresponds to the central zone (Madrid) representing the hub of Spanish business. By 2010, the level of participation of the Cantabrian coast has already diminished, but the presence of family controlled groups
27 and firms (G/F) on the Mediterranean coast has remained constant. Indeed, due to the emergence of G/F on the Balearic Islands, the participation is even greater. It is worth noting the continuity, in 1964 as well as 2010, of the G/F of Madrid, Barcelona and Vizcaya (Biscay); and in 2005 as well as in 2010 in Coruña, Burgos, Balearic Islands and the Valencian coast. Regional specialization has been very varied in its influence on the fabric of Spanish business. Comparing the years 1989 with 2010, in the case of groups, a sharp decline is seen in Barcelona, a continuity in Madrid, and a large increase in the regions of Coruña and Sevilla. With respect to independent businesses, Barcelona registers decline, Madrid continues its strong presence, and in Coruña, Valencia and Balearic Islands there is clear growth. Concerning the above, two large territories can be identified: those provinces relatively enriched by large family business, namely Coruña, Sevilla, Vizcaya, Valencia and Balearic Islands; and those provinces relatively impoverished in their presence in the elite of Spanish family capitalism, Barcelona and Madrid.

Conclusions This study proposes a new methodology for the long-term study of the largest family-controlled businesses and groups in Spain. Based on the historical assumption that there is no single homogenous source that allows identification and comparison of the largest family businesses in the last 60 years, sources with various indicators have been selected in order to rigorously construct, for each chosen year, an estimated ranking of the largest family businesses, their activity sector and location (of their head office). The comparisons are made with simple indicators, such as year of creation and/or founding of the business, the sectorial activity (grouping the relevant information from each source according to categories defined by the United Nations), and size indicators (employment, own resources, sales) available each year, thus allowing businesses from industry and services (not agriculture), listed or not, to be included. Studies on large businesses in Spain that only use corporate data tend to exclude the sector of distribution, and the service sector in general precisely where large family businesses are dominant the world over according to current descriptive identifications of largest family businesses in 6 developed and 5 developing economies in 2005 and 2010 that uses a similar methodology to the one used for this paper on Spain (Fernández Pérez 2012, and forthcoming). The criteria of flexible selection of sources allows the construction of databases that show the importance of families in the service sector as well as in industry (although they exclude the primary sector since no source includes family land cultivation in the rankings of largest businesses). The use of new sources with flexible criteria, that are historically appropriate for each diverse historical period, allows comparisons of the territorial and temporal aspects of the largest family businesses and groups, by province, in the years between 1964 and They show the changing keys to longevity and competiveness, clearly related to exogenous factors (big changes in the market and politics, such as integration into the European economy, the establishing of policies favourable to motivating winners on an autonomous and national scale, and the organization of large family business
33 associations in the country), and endogenous factors (succession planning, professionalization, changing family models and gender roles, leadership) that a more accurate case by case analysis will provide soon in our research agenda. Work on the influence of exogenous changes in the evolution of currently active large Spanish family businesses has already been partially published which only analyzed successful dynasties (Fernández Pérez y Puig 2007 y 2009). This work brings to light new historical indicators and new historically-based methodologies to identify, quantify, and compare, large family businesses across sectors and regions. With the new proposed methodology, that advocates for the use of different information appropriate for different historical periods (employment, revenues, income), non-listed companies and non-industrial and non-financial top businesses may be included in the historical analysis of the changes and continuities of largest family businesses in a territory. With this new methodology, also, it has been possible to trace changes in the specialization and endurance of large family businesses, by sector and province, over time, that brings to life those dynasties that were successful in the past (as measured in being in leading top positions of each year s ranking of largest businesses in the country) as well as those that disappeared from the top rankings. It also identifies those who have endured, and shows that endurance can take place in sectors that are not the usual sectors that publications only using financial listed information have considered: engineering, construction, tourism, and a diversity of services to industry. With a flexible historical methodology and indicators, the paper has been, also, able to identify key moments in the adoption and increase use of organizational typologies of large family businesses, like the business group. The tables in the paper show that depending on the context an independent firm could be efficient, and in other contexts families preferred to use groups, but that with a long-term perspective groups have proved to be more efficient in terms of employment, for instance, when considering the largest family groups versus the largest family firms in Spain in the last three decades. Thus, the increase in the use of the group as an organizational form can be, in the future, analyzed not just as an endogenous change in strategies of some families in business, but also as an efficient tool to increase employment in territories where families in business may prevail over other forms of firm ownership.
34 The paper, finally, because it has a broader coverage than past publications on large businesses in Spain, serves to highlight something relatively new in Spanish historiography: a) the central role of Madrid and the Basque Country in bringing together the elite of family capitalism (in businesses as well as groups) in Spain during the Franco dictatorship and until Spanish integration into European institutions; b) the rise to the elite of family capitalism by companies from the peripheral areas of Spain only in the 1980s-1990s, coinciding with the period of greatest internationalization and the establishment of regional governments who subsidized regional champions and protected the growth of large family businesses in their regions (Fernández and Puig 2009); c) the renewed power of Madrid as focal point for the family business elite in the first decade of the 21st century, in a context of the battle for tax reforms among the Autonomous Communities, which affected the profit and loss accounts and the location strategies of businesses of many family groups; d) the relative longevity of some dynasties despite changes in politics, technology and the market (above all in Andalucia, Cantabria, Asturias and Basque Country); e) the changes in the main specialization of activities of the large family businesses and groups, from extraction and metals during the Franco Regime of the 1960s, to construction and commercial distribution in 2010 (despite the tendency toward diversification); f) the predominance of the largest family businesses and groups specializing in construction, civil engineering, retail distribution and current related services (controlled by head offices in Madrid, in these sectors). This contrasts clearly with the dominant specializations of the large family capital elite in developed countries and in emerging economies, which are currently food and beverage industries and large-scale commercial distribution (Fernández Pérez 2012); g) and the greater relative diversification, by sector, in the peripheral regions of the country, where a combination of innovation, internationalization and policies of promotion for regional family business have helped to preserve long-standing dynasties and the reputation of more traditional conservative activities (which
35 are in greater danger of attack by competition from foreign multinationals monopolizing these activities in the global markets).
