Corporate finance is one of the most noteworthy topics in the financial sphere, being profoundly embedded in our everyday lives. Corporations require corporate finance to function and, more precisely, to create value. It is widely recognized that shareholder wealth maximization is the supreme objective of a company, and shareholders are the residual claimants. Nevertheless, when the suppliers of finance are different from those who control and exploit their assets, the need for corporate governance is crucial. Additionally, corporate social responsibility supports sustainable development by ensuring economic, social, and environmental benefits for all stakeholders. Further, going public leads to the creation of supplementary financing sources, greater visibility, and trustworthiness for the company, but with these opportunities come several downsides, such as openness to government and public scrutiny, strict disclosure requirements, or markets pressures. Therewith, mergers and acquisitions reveal a quick method for companies to advance the scale of their processes, widen their product portfolio, and pass in to novel markets. General topics of interest comprise but are not limited to:
- Investigating the specific determinants of capital structure;
- Analyzing the drivers of firm performance;
- Assessing bankruptcy risk;
- Inspecting the association between working capital and company performance;
- Exploring the relationship between corporate governance and firm value;
- Examining the causality between corporate social responsibility and dividend policy;
- Estimating the impact of mergers and acquisitions on stock prices.
