|Title:||Ownership Structure and Corporate Performance: Evidence from Bangladesh||Contributor(s):||Farooque, Omar (author) ; van Zijl, Tony (author); Dunstan, Keitha (author); Waresul Karim, AKM (author)||Publication Date:||2007||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/3027||Abstract:||This paper models the corporate ownership and performance relationship in Bangladesh listed firms using a simultaneous equations approach. Consistent with contemporary literature a 'reverse-way' causality relationship between the two is documented. Using an unbalanced pooled sample of 660 firm-years, our results suggest that ownership does not have a significant impact on performance (Tobin's Q or ROA). However, performance does appear to have a significant negative impact on ownership. With few exceptions, other governance and control variables appear to have significant effects on both performance and ownership. These results imply that despite significant governance differences between Bangladesh and developed market economies there are strong similarities in 'internal governance mechanisms' and the implications of agency theory.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Asia-Pacific Journal of Accounting & Economics, 14(2), p. 127-149||Publisher:||Blackwell Publishing||Place of Publication:||New York, United States of America||ISSN:||1608-1625||Field of Research (FOR):||150103 Financial Accounting||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.roae.org/document/14-2/127-150%20Ownership%20Structure%20andCorporate%20Performance%20%20Evidence%20from%20Bangladesh.pdf||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 124
