1. Kurinyepa, Evans. The Impact of Wide Social Media Dissemination of Disclosures on Information Asymmetry: A New Zealand Context .

Degree: AUT University

The type and number of social media platforms a company uses in their corporate disclosures has received little examination in the disclosure literature. The disclosure literature has noted the differences between social media platforms (Müller, Schneiders, & Schäfer, 2016; Soo Jung & Hadley, 2014). There however has been few studies on the impact this difference has on the information environment of companies. Further, there has been little effort to understand how the number of social media platforms used impacts on the information environment of companies. Based on a sample of 92 social media users and 58 non-users of social media listed on the NZSX and using the Investor Recognition Hypothesis, this study examines the effects of social media dissemination within the New Zealand context. Previous research in other countries has established that social media dissemination reduces information asymmetry, as it widely spreads the news (Blankespoor, Miller, & White, 2014b; Prokofieva, 2015b). The results confirm these findings, even when the public announcements are available on the NZX Material Announcements Platform (MAP). Comparing the main social media platforms used in New Zealand (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube), the findings show that LinkedIn was the only one negatively associated with information asymmetry. The study also concludes that as New Zealand companies continue to adopt and expand social media use, having more than one social media platform does not significantly affect information asymmetry.

2. Velayutham, Ajantha. The Value of Human Capital: Is Academic Performance Reflected in Academic Salaries .

Degree: AUT University

The subject of human capital is of growing importance in accounting and business research in the 21st century. This paper empirically investigates whether an individual’s knowledge, skills and capabilities (human capital) are reflected in their compensation and is focussed on academics in the Province of Ontario, Canada. The study contributes to existing literature through the lens of individual level human capital and compensation. The regression analysis performed indicates a positive association between academic human capital and academic salaries. However, the current study measures human capital solely from a research perspective, as opposed to also considering academics teaching outputs. Advisors/Committee Members: Rahman, Asheq (advisor).

3. Khattak, Mohay ud din Khan. Ownership Structures and Stock Price Synchronicity in Brazil and Russia .

Degree: AUT University

This thesis investigates how various aspects of ultimate ownership affect the information environment, as measured by stock price synchronicity, of publicly traded companies in Brazil and Russia. Considering the fundamentally distinct ultimate ownership and institutional environments of the two emerging capital markets, hypotheses are developed and tested to link the association of ultimate ownership and firms’ information environments in two essays, one relating to Brazil and the other to Russia. Essay One (Chapter 3), following the introductory and conceptual framework chapters, focuses on the separate effects of the ultimate owners’ ownership concentration, control-ownership divergence, and participation in shareholder agreements, as well as the combined effect of firms’ listing quality and ownership concentration on the corporate information environment in Brazil. Using a sample of 121 companies listed on the Brazilian stock exchange in 2014, the essay notes that synchronicity is a concave function of the cash-flow rights of the ultimate owner with its inflection (maximum) point at about 50% cash-flow rights. This supports the argument that low levels of ownership concentration (<50%) attract entrenchment behaviour, leading controlling shareholders to withhold firm-specific information from the market, while higher levels of ownership concentration (> 50%) align the interests of the ultimate owners with the non-controlling shareholders, which dilutes the ultimate owners’ incentive to adopt poor disclosure and reporting practices. Additionally, the essay confirms the notion that controlling owners’ incentives to entrench are even stronger when they have both below-majority ownership stakes and a separation between ownership and control rights: “extreme managerial entrenchment” results in “extreme information asymmetry” between controlling and minority investors. Another important finding – the more (less) pronounced concave relation between ownership concentration and synchronicity for the firms listed on lower-quality listing segments (higher-quality listing segments) of the exchange – highlights the information role of institutional-level investor protection arrangements in addition to firm-level investor protection mechanisms (i.e., ownership) in Brazil. More precisely, a less (more) pronounced increasing relationship between cash-flow rights and synchronicity in the higher segments of the exchange is attributed to the dampening (exacerbation) of the entrenchment activities of the controlling owner due to high-quality investor protection provisions embedded in the listing rules. Finally, the essay finds that shareholder agreements (SAs) signed between a controlling shareholder and several non-controlling shareholders have favourable impacts on firms’ disclosure and information dissemination practices (lower synchronicity) relative to the shareholder agreements signed among several non-controlling shareholders. Essay two (Chapter 4) explores how controlling shareholders affect the information content of… Advisors/Committee Members: Rahman, Asheq (advisor), Habib, Ahsan (advisor).
