The CORPFIN laboratory studies a variety of topics related to corporate finance. Corporate activities can be broadly divided into investment, financing, and profit distribution. Companies invest in tangible and intangible assets for production. Financing can include issuing bonds, reinvesting with retained profits, and further selling shares to shareholders. In other words, investment decisions are about the execution of funds, and capital raising decisions are about the company's capital structure. It is also very important to increase the value of the company through expansion so that it can use the fair distribution of profits (dividends) to shareholders so that they can trust and invest in the capital market again.
A good corporate governance system is closely linked to the corporate value. Under a good corporate governance system, managers and employees are well-incentivized and compensated to enhance firm value, and ultimately realize the value of corporate social responsibility that returns benefits to all stakeholders around the firm. In this laboratory, we investigate the various issues around modern corporation including the capital structure, corporate financial disclosure, M&A (merger and acquisition), market efficiency, ESG (Environment, Social, and Governance), Initial Public Offerings, and the valuation of assets or investments.
