9780444508980: Handbook of Corporate Finance, Volume 1: Empirical Corporate Finance (Handbooks in Finance)

Judging by the sheer number of papers reviewed in this Handbook, the empirical analysis of firms’ financing and investment decisions―empirical corporate finance―has become a dominant field in financial economics. The growing interest in everything “corporate is fueled by a healthy combination of fundamental theoretical developments and recent widespread access to large transactional data bases. A less scientific―but nevertheless important―source of inspiration is a growing awareness of the important social implications of corporate behavior and governance. This Handbook takes stock of the main empirical findings to date across an unprecedented spectrum of corporate finance issues, ranging from econometric methodology, to raising capital and capital structure choice, and to managerial incentives and corporate investment behavior. The surveys are written by leading empirical researchers that remain active in their respective areas of interest. With few exceptions, the writing style makes the chapters accessible to industry practitioners. For doctoral students and seasoned academics, the surveys offer dense roadmaps into the empirical research landscape and provide suggestions for future work.

*The Handbooks in Finance series offers a broad group of outstanding volumes in various areas of finance
*Each individual volume in the series should present an accurate self-contained survey of a sub-field of finance
*The series is international in scope with contributions from field leaders the world over

From the Back Cover:

The financing and investment decisions made by firms―empirical corporate finance―are receiving unprecedented coverage by researchers. Armed with large transactional databases and new theories, scholars are revealing the ways that these decisions reverberate, affecting such disparate areas as capital structure and managerial incentives. This volume―the first of two―focuses on econometric issues and methodological trends as well as banking, public offerings, and private sources of capital. Featuring contributions by leading international researchers, this survey of empirical corporate finance will serve as the new benchmark for research by graduate students through professionals.

About the Author:

Professor Eckbo, who received a PhD in financial economics from the University of Rochester in 1981, has published extensively in the top finance journals in the areas of corporate finance, investment banking, and the market for corporate control.
