Trade-Off Theory or Pecking Order Theory with a State Ownership Structure: The Vietnam Case

The process firms use to choose their capital structures is explained by different corporate finance theories in which trade-off and pecking order are the two most popular hypotheses. Testing these two models will help to determine whether a target debt ratio exists, and if so, how rapidly firms adjust their current leverage levels to match this target level. The findings in this paper determined that the pecking order theory might not be applied in Vietnam when internal funds and new equity issuance...

The Impact of Foreign Bank Presence on Domestic Vietnamese Banks

This paper analyses the impact of foreign bank presence on domestic bank accounting performance taking into account the role of bank ownership. The data covers the period from 1992 to 2012; this period reflects almost all significant restructuring programs and achievements. The results indicate that the entry of foreign banks has generated strong competitive pressure, such that domestic banks have to forego their excess profits, and instead, share the non-interest-bearing income with foreign banks....

Measuring Interdependence and Contagion: A Copula Approach

Determining financial crises is a hard procedure to do. Financial crises are still exanimate an essential phenomenon known for its international influence and scope and its propagation indistinctively across developed and developing countries. There is no apparent consensus among researchers as to the adequate approach to adopt in order to test out contagion. In this paper, we develop a contagion-assessment model. We analyse the extreme dependence structure, stemming from the characteristics of the...

Do Entrenched Managers Prefer Bond?

Prior research has documented both positive (John and Litov, 2009) and negative (Berger, Ofek, and Yermack, 1997) relationships between managerial entrenchment and the use of debt. This paper further investigates the impact of corporate governance on firm’s leverage by taking into account the substitution effect of different governance mechanisms. Consistent with John and Litov (2009), we find that antitakeover provisions have a positive effect on firm’s leverage. However, this effect disappears...

Efficiency and Productivity Analysis of Microfinance Institutions in Cambodia: A DEA Approach

This paper employs the non-parametric Data Envelopment Approach (DEA) and Dynamic Malmquist Productivity Index (MPI) to examine the efficiency and productivity of Cambodian microfinance institutions during the period 2008-2011. We found that the microfinance institutions in Cambodia have exhibited an overall efficiency of 92% during 2008-2011 suggesting an input waste of 8%. The overall efficiency has improved slightly from 91% in 2008 to 92% in 2009 and remained stable in 2010 and 2011. In addition,...

European Corporate Credit Returns: A Risk Return Analysis

Integration of European Capital markets has coincided with the development and exponential growth of credit derivative markets. As credit derivatives have matured as an asset class, we can regard them as return generating assets and not simply as risk transfer vehicles. The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) suggests that the return of holding such assets should be commensurate with their risk. This paper examines the risk-return characteristics of European Credit Default Swaps (CDSs). We empirically...

Business Valuation for a Company Purchase: Application of Valuation Formulas

To help him determine what maximum price he may afford to pay without the transaction proving disadvantageous, we implement an investment theory-based method. The purpose of our paper is to show how formulas derived from the state marginal...

Anomalous Market Reaction to Right Share Offers in Bangladesh

We have examined the right offers made between January 2010 to October 2012 by companies listed on the Dhaka Stock Exchange and tested the speed of adjustment of market price of the issuers to the right issues. The analysis leads to the conclusion that the adjustment is not immediate, the market price is about 10-11 percent higher than the right adjusted price on the average and the difference is statistically significant. It takes about 15 days for the market price to reach a stage where the difference...
