Corporate Restructuring in Vietnam: An Analysis of Asset Restructuring

SU DINH THANH, DOAN VU NGUYEN, BUI THANH TRUNG

Tóm tắt


Corporate restructuring is likely to be approached from various aspects. In this paper and in the context of Vietnam, it is inspected via asset restructuring. Using both financial and non-financial indicators of 226 listed firms on Hochiminh Stock Exchange (HOSE) and Hanoi Stock Exchange (HNX) over the 2007–2014 period, this paper investigates: (i) the determinants of corporate restructuring in Vietnam; and (ii) the effects of corporate restructuring on corporate performance. Empirical findings show that: (i) the fact that an enterprise conducts its restructuring plans primarily depends on its performance, and ownership concentration has a negative impact on the process of restructuring; (ii) a board with the presence of outside directors has positive and statistically significant effects on the performance of the firm, and foreign holdings lead to subsequent performance improvement.http://jabes.ueh.edu.vn/Home/SearchArticle?article_Id=01c3bd08-9271-4e5d-a863-79ccad970076
