Specific Research 【 display / non-display

  • Cash Holding of Private and Public Firms

    2021   Thanh Nguyen

     View Summary

    This research investigates the differences between public and private firms in Japan, with a focus on corporate cash holdings. Data of Japanese corporations from 2011 to 2019 shows that public firms hold more cash than private firms consistently, and the gap widens over time. The research results help to deepen the understanding of Japanese firms and hence act as meaningful references to investors, corporate executives, and policymakers adjusting cash holding policies, thus highlighting relevance to the Japanese economy.

  • Product Market Competition, Venture Capital Financing, and The Success of Entrepreneurial Firms

    2020   My Nguyen, Douglas Cumming

     View Summary

    We document a positive effect of product market competition (PMC) on venture capital staged financing. The effect is more pronounced when firms are younger, operate in high-tech industries, or receive investments from irreputable and inexperienced VCs. We then find a joint positive impact between PMC and VC staging on the short-term and the long-term success of entrepreneurial firms.
