ABSTRACT

Role of corporate governance indicators in IPO (Initial Public Offering) pricing is moderately researched area, however, a majority of these researches are found to be in context of other than Asian economies. Particularly, in context of Indian IPO market, only a few studies have been conducted in the past. Hence, the present study aspires to bridge this gap by examining the statistical significance of board-related corporate governance mechanisms in predicting the likelihood of IPO underpricing. This study is unique as it incorporates a new dimension of “board leadership” and examines the impact of having an independent director as the chairman of the board on IPO underpricing. Binary Logistic Regression Model is used to establish the relationship between IPO Listing gain/loss and board-related corporate governance mechanisms viz. participation of women directors on board, nature of board leadership and board independence.
