The Post-Issue Operating Performance of IPO Firms
Overview of the article As there were still few attempts to measure operating performance of IPO firms at that time, Jain and Kini (1994) wrote this article in a bid to focus on this particular issue by study on the IPO firms during 1976-1988. They investigate the change in operating performance of firms after going public through IPOs which they find that IPO firms show a decline in post-issue operating performance. The main reasons that explain the decline in the post-issue operating performance of IPO firms are the existence of information asymmetry and/or a conflict of interest between the existing entrepreneurs and the new shareholders. The authors separate the reasons into 3 points: (1) the agency cost increases when a private firm transfers to public and the reduction in ownership stake consequently leads to the agency problem, (2) the window-dressing made by managers causes overstate pre-IPO performance and understate post-IPO performance, (3) the timing that issue stock in periods of unusually good performance levels while they know that the good performance is not sustainable. This article is divided into four parts; Part 1 presents the sources of collected information on IPO firms and the criteria used for selecting them. So, their finally sample consists of 682 firms. The authors also stated that all significant tests are based on the two-tailed Wilcoxon signed rank tests, assuming that the observations are independent. They concerned about the skewness of the data from operating performance. So, they used the median as a measure of central tendency throughout the literature. Part 2 demonstrates evidences on post-issue operating performance changes. They measured it by using two proxies: (1.) the operating return on assets, (2.) the operating cash flows deflated by assets. These measures were…...

...2008 Post-IPO Operating Performance and Earnings Management Nurwati A. Ahmad-Zaluki Banking and Finance Building, College of Business Universiti Utara Malaysia, 06010 Sintok Kedah, Malaysia Tel: 60-4-928-6451 Abstract E-mail: nurwati@uum.edu.my The present study investigates the operating performance and the existence of earnings management for a sample of 254 Malaysian IPO companies over the period 1990-2000. Using accrual-based measure of operating performance, this study finds strong evidence of declining performance in the IPO year and up to three years following IPOs relative to the pre-IPO period. This finding is consistent with the results of prior studies documenting the long run underperformance of IPO companies. The results also confirm that the decline in post-IPO operating performance is due to the existence of earnings manipulation by the IPO manager at the time of going public. Keywords: Initial public offerings, Operating performance, Earnings management 1. Introduction Existing international studies of initial public offering (IPO) companies find that operating performance had declined in the post-IPO period (Jain and Kini, 1994; Mikkelson et al, 1997; Kim et al., 2004). The majority of prior studies are based on the accrual measure of accounting profits which are potentially subject to accounting manipulation by managers, for example through working capital adjustments (Teoh et al., 1998). The most recent study of operating performance of......

Ownership Structure and Firm Performance

...Changing ownership and its impact on Firm performance: A detailed pre and post crisis study on Indian firms Several studies are available establishing relationship between firm performance and ownership structure and the results are mixed. Several authors have found significant relationship while others have not found any significant relationships. In Indian context also, there are several studies which propagates to have both kind of results. The way literature is linking the owner ship with performance has always been via addressing the agency (outsiders and insiders) problem, board structure, size, leverage etc. but, literature is sparse to identify these variables as moderating the relationship between ownership and firm performance. The purpose of this study is to establish and study the relationship between ownership and performance in Indian context. Considering following points, I recommend a framework to study the changing ownership and firm performance under the premise that agency costs and information asymmetry acts as moderating variable, which increases/decreases performance when ownership changes. * In India, it is confirmed by several authors that concentrated and complex ownership structure is found which creates problem of heterogeneity and opacity. * India has agency type 2 problems; few studies are available addressing type 2 problem and variables to measure this. * Opacity and complexity creates Information asymmetry and tunneling......

Analysts' Selective Coverage and Subsequent Performance of Newly Public Firms

...Analysts' Selective Coverage and Subsequent Performance of Newly Public Firms ABSTRACT This study examines the ability of analysts to forecast future firm performance, based on the selective coverage of newly public firms. We hypothesize that the decision to provide coverage contains information about an analyst’s underlying expectation of a firm’s future prospects. We extract this expectation by obtaining residual analyst coverage from a model of initial analyst following. We document that in the three subsequent years, IPOs with high residual coverage have significantly better returns and operating performance than those with low residual coverage. This evidence indicates analysts have superior predictive abilities and selectively provide coverage for firms about which their true expectations are favorable. ∗ Das and Guo are at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and Zhang is at the University of Hong Kong.

Performance Issues

... HR Performance Issues and Motivation Vada Taborn BUS610: Organizational Behavior Instructor: Martin McDermott Date: December 22, 2014 HR Performance Issues and Motivation It is common for motivation to be used in the workplace in order for goals to be reached by employees. In the workplace, it is absolutely necessary that both management and employees are able to concentrate on their work. There are many things that can motivate someone into acting or behaving a certain way. A person’s productivity can be determined by the motivation that they receive not only from their work environment but also from outside influences. Money is not the only influence that can motivate an employee. Sometimes showing an employee how much their hard work is appreciated can motivate them into working harder. There are many motivational problems that can make it very difficult for goals to be reached. Motivational problems may come from the workplace, while others occur outside the workplace, but all of them can influence a worker’s performance. A person’s personal life can be the most common motivation problem. It is necessary to separate personal life and work but it is sometimes difficult to do and family affairs may affect performance at the workplace. There is always a need to be able to totally focus on work in order for organizational goals to be reached. The issues that a person has in their person life can be motivation problems that make it hard for goals to be attained. Some of......

Uk Operating Performance

...UK operating performance We achieved strong sales growth in the year with stores open more than one year increasing their sales by 8.9%. Of this, 4.8% was due to an increase in the volume of products sold and 4.1% was due to inflation. The trend in existing stores sales growth is shown in Chart 1. On this measure, we continue to outperform the industry average. Sales from new stores continue to be encouraging, with all formats - superstores, compact, Metro and Express - trading in line with our expectations. New stores (after allowing for closures) contributed 10.9% to our overall sales growth. For the year ahead, we expect a further useful contribution despite a smaller opening programme weighted towards the year end. Our total UK sales increase was 19.8%.This contributed to the estimated rise in our market share from 12.0% to 13.6% (see Chart 2). The market continues to be highly competitive. Our ongoing commitment to offer customers excellent value for money has meant we have reduced selling prices on many products.Through managing improvements in our sales mix, better buying and more efficient sourcing we have been able to limit the impact of reduced prices on gross margins which fell by only 0.2%. We have continued our drive to improve the productivity of all areas. This has helped us to finance the significant improvements we have made to checkout service and more labour intensive departments such as pharmacies. As a result, UK wages as a percentage of sales reduced by...

Business Article on Firm Diversity and Performance

...Organizational Theories and Behaviors Summary of the article « Examining the link between diversity and firm performance: The effects of Diversity reputation and leader racial diversity», Cornell University ------------------------------------------------- The 21st century is typified by more women and employees with diverse ethnic backgrounds, alternative lifestyles, and intergenerational differences than in the past. Moreover, many leaders have realized that the extent to which these demographic workforce changes are effectively and efficiently managed will impact organizational functioning and competitiveness. If some studies have been made on the effects of cultural diversity in management and strategic choices on firm performance, research is now needed to understand the effects of diversity reputation on firm performance and how leader racial diversity is related to organizational financial performance. Conceptual Background and hypotheses Diversity reputation and firm performance The corporate reputation is defined as stakeholder’s perceptions about an organization’s ability to create value, the quality of a firm’s products and services, long-term investment value, and the ability to attract and retain talent. Related to diversity reputation, stakeholders may use media rankings as an overall evaluation of whether a firm is a diversity leader. As it has been shown that stock price valuations evaluated according to a “best company” announcement, the study ...

However, with certain logical and systematic steps, this can be simpler task for even the novice of users. Since there are many different problems that can occur with an OS, there is not one type of step that can be done, but often with a simple process of elimination, the problem can be solved. With newer users and tech, a though process is often needed, yet with a more knowledgeable technician, they have the benefit of experience. More often than not, maintenance can be the cause of such problems, which is why an emphasis on preventive maintenance is advised. Preventative maintenance is paramount in PC functionality, yet it the most overlooks aspect of PC care. When conducting maintenance of a PC, one can help save costly fixes in the future, as well as safeguarding your information saved on your PC.

A very big thank you, Sir. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank my family for their love and concern all these years. Thank you Dad, Mum and Brother. Without their support, I would not have come so far. Thank you! Voon Peijun 2009 Page i ABSTRACT The study explores the role of issue managers in the initial public offering (IPO) process. Empirical research shows that IPOs are associated with two significant market anomalies: short-run underpricing puzzle and long-run underperformance phenomenon. This paper examines the reputational influence of issue managers on the two anomalies. Employing the newly developed ‘twelve-month rolling’ reputation ranking approach, our study is the first to furnish a comprehensive ranking of all the issue managers with a substantial presence in Singapore. Based on a sample of 384 IPOs listed on the Singapore Exchange between January 1, 1997 and August 22, 2008, we find evidence of prevalent short-run underpricing......
