The Expiration of IPO-Lockup Periods (eBook, PDF)
14,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Seminar paper from the year 2020 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 1.3, University of Mannheim, language: English, abstract: This paper analyses the expiration of IPO-lockup periods and its affects on stock returns using event study methodology. The study focuses on 5,171 IPOs with lockup agreements in the U.S. market between 1988 and 2018. Significant differences in cumulative abnormal returns due to various firm characteristics are explored. This thesis is largely based on the paper of Field and Hanka (2001) and assesses whether the expiration of lockup periods results in abnormal returns and daily trading volume. For this purpose, an event study for 3,306 lockup agreements of IPOs over a 31-year period from 1988 until 2018 is performed. The sample is limited to the United States as the newly listed firms' domicile nation. The changes in daily trading volume around the expiration date of the lockup are also analysed. Moreover, the paper examines the length of the agreed lockup periods and whether tech firms react differently to the expiration from firms in other industries.

Feel overwhelmed by your thoughts? Struggling with anxiety about your daily tasks? Or do you want to stop worrying about life? Anxiety is a normal part of life. In fact, it is more abnormal for someone to say they have never experienced a moment of anxiety than it is for someone to say that they have had instances in their life where they were anxious. However, anxiety can also come in different shades and levels of severity. The most typical occurrences of anxiety are before a big event happens in a person’s life, like a wedding or a job interview. It is when a person’s anxiety becomes debilitating to the point where they avoid doing things because of their anxiety, it is at this point then you need to closely examine how these thoughts are negatively impacting your lifestyle.The solution is to practice specific mindfulness techniques that create more "space" in your mind to enjoy inner peace and happiness. With these habits, you'll have the clarity to prioritize what's most important in your life, what no longer serves your goals, and how you want to live on a daily basis. And that's what you'll learn in The Anxiety Workbook. This book covers a range of topics on anxiety, including:Understanding the main causes of anxiety such as family history or environmental factors Determining what type of anxiety disorder a person may have based on the symptoms they are exhibiting What are some of the key ways a person can change their mindset in order to regain a sense of control over their life An in-depth look into why sleep is so important as well as how to improve a person’s sleep Some of the best behavioral changes a person can make that will help them to work through their anxiety How to overcome a person’s fears so that they can build their confidence and lessen their anxiety over the things in life that scare them A look into some of the less conventional 1.

Stock Market Driven Acquisitions
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The M&amp,A (Mergers and Acquisitions) deal is an important corporate decision nowadays, both the number of global M&amp,A deals and the total transaction value have dramatically increased.This work uses a sample of UK mergers and acquisition from 1985-2004 (inclusive), and shows that relative valuation between acquirers and targets appears to play an important role in explaining companies' acquisition behaviour. This work also uses various methodologies and consistently finds significant negative post-event long-term abnormal returns for acquiring firms and it provides additional empirical evidence regarding pre-bid abnormal returns for both acquiring firms and targets. The analysis should help shed some light on corporate M&amp,A behaviour and its relation with capital market for both academic researchers and corporate financial managers.

Exclusivity and Drug R&D in the US
59,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Revision with unchanged content. This book explores the effect of marginal changes in the exclusivity environment, on research efforts of firms involved in drug R&D and production in the US. Exclusivity here refers to the IP environment and marketing regulations of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), both of which determine the exclusive marketing period and appropriation allowed for drug research. In the US, drugs have to go through a long approval process with the FDA before marketing. Several legal decisions were instrumental in recognizing weak links in this process over 1984 to 2003 when key statutory amendments were passed. This book starts by providing some background on the IP and drug regulation in the US. Next, using the event study method, the reaction of firms categorized into three groups- Pharmaceuticals, Biotechs and Generics are analyzed as a consequence of some precedent-setting patent and regulatory cases. Cases returning significant abnormal returns are then considered in further analyzing the research behavior of pharmaceutical and biotech firms. This book is addressed to anyone interested in the drug research appropriation debates in the US including patent law and public policy experts.

Effects of Adrenal Steroids on Mood and Memory
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Abnormal patterns of cortisol secretion and neuropsychological impairment have been shown in depression and these have been hypothesised to be linked. The functional cortisol antagonist, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) enhances memory in rodents and has been reported to improve mood in depressed patients. This book describes some of the author s work investigating the neural circuitry of episodic memory in depressed patients and healthy controls as well as following cortisol and DHEA administration, using an event-related potential (ERP) technique. Findings from these studies are unique, being the first to reveal specific effects of DHEA and cortisol on the neural correlates of episodic memory. DHEA improves episodic retrieval possibly via neuronal recruitment of the anterior cingulate cortex. DHEA also improves mood and decreases trough cortisol levels suggesting a possible role of this neurosteroid in the management of depression. The laterality of the neural correlates of episodic retrieval appears to be sensitive to exogenous as well as endogenous cortisol and may, at least in part, explain the alteration in cortical laterality seen in depression.

Agency Costs in Small Firm Acquisitions
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This event study examines small Russell 2000 firms acquired during the two years ending June 30, 2001. This study tests whether bidders highly value sales or assets (the agency hypothesis) or profits/cash flows (the alternative hypothesis). This study finds that independent director majorities or the presence of academic directors on acquirer boards of directors are associated with lower target-firm announcement-period abnormal returns. Acquirer boards with both an independent director majority and at least one director from academia are associated with the lowest target-firm announcement-period abnormal returns of any of the groups examined. Consistent with prior research, diversifying acquisitions are associated with higher target-firm and lower acquirer announcement-period abnormal returns than focusing acquisitions. However, a closer look at diversifying acquisitions suggests that acquirers more highly value smaller, more profitable target firms for use in entering unfamiliar industries. Therefore, a dip your toe into a different pond theory might be more appropriate for these types of diversifying acquisitions than either the agency or hubris theories.

The Pathophysiology of Sickle Cell Disease
68,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Sickle cell disease is best known as an inherited hemolytic disorder of defective hemoglobin that distorts red blood cell morphology, function and lifespan. It is less well known as a disease that targets the microvasculature, characterized by increased expression of cell adhesion molecules, enhanced production of reactive oxygen species, abnormal blood cell-endothelial cell interactions in postcapillary venules and altered vasomotor responses in arterioles. These microvascular responses are crucial to the initiation and progression of vasoocclusive crises, the disease s critical pathophysiological event that leads to pain crises, organ injury and early mortality. This work considers sickle cell disease vascular pathology in terms of the cellular, molecular and biochemical players that participate in the evolution,progression and resolution of vasoocclusive crises. The work provides a comprehensive overview of the complex pathophysiology of sickle cell disease and is an ideal reference source for professionals in the medical and scientific community.
