An Empirical Analysis on the Influencing Factors of Choosing M&A Targets

On 15/09/2013, in Management, by rain

As an effective means of integration of resources, Merger and Acquisition (M&A) can help to realize Enterprise’s rapid development, playing an important role in the strategy of Enterprise development and industrial upgrade. The most important factor of M&A is to choose the right targets Enterprise, so it will play important theoretical significance and application value for exploring the factors that affect choosing M&A target enterprise.In recent years, China’s pharmaceutical industry has developed rapidly and become one of the fastest-growing sectors, with huge potential for development. However, China’s pharmaceutical enterprise has the small scale, large quantity, the low level of overall benefits, and weak R&D capability. To change this situation, it is practical to upgrade pharmaceutical industrial structure by M&As. Along with deepening of our stock market’s reform and fast development of capital market, especially since the dual-rights reform, a large number of M&As took place in China’s pharmaceutical enterprises. So it is necessary to conduct analysis and research on factors influencing M&A target choice in China’s pharmaceutical enterprises.On the base of analyzing the literatures about motivations and target at home and abroad, combined with the actual situation of the Chinese pharmaceutical industry, this paper used normative research and empirical research to expound factors influencing M&A target choice. The study employed a sample of target listed companies from pharmaceutical industry in which M&A occurred from2007to2011. and used means of difference analysis, factor analysis and Logistic regression. The conclusion provides a solid experimental support on the replacement of inefficient Management hypothesis, the enterprise scale hypothesis, the shares decentralization hypothesis, and provides no support on the financial leverage hypothesis, the enterprise value hypothesis, the intangible assets hypothesis, the growth capability-financial ability of expansion hypothesis. The Logistic regression model passes Hosmer-Lemeshow test. And its accuracy of prediction arrives at70.7%which meets the expected accuracy level on the whole. At last, combining the conclusion of the empirical research, this article puts forward some policy suggestion and corresponding strategy of pharmaceutical enterprises.

A Study on the Effects of Listed Corporate Governance to Audit Quality

On 15/09/2013, in Management, by rain

In twenty-first century, while the global economy developes rapidly, the phenomenons ofdistorting accounting information, being out of internal control,and suffering huge losses of nationaleconomy.emerge frequently. Many listed companies’ accounting information distorts and their auditquality is low.The Basic reason for that lies in governance structure of the listed company havingproblem. At the present stage of our country, the legal constraints and governance structure of listedcompany is not perfect. And the motives of false financial report is remain strong, the impact causedby issuing different Management mode of the audit has aroused great concern.Therefore, it is greatsignificance to research and reveal the problem which factors impact listed companies’ audit qualityfrom the perspective of empirical analysis, to mine the essential reason for Listed company’s auditquality being low, to impel the listed company on the development road of benign loop.This paper firstly defines the concept of corporate governance’s structure and audit quality. Onthis basis, choose ownership structure and board characteristics as listed corporate governancecharacteristics variables, and make controllable accrued profit absolute value,which sloved byJones model using accruals method, as the measure of audit quality standard. Selects data from thecompanies listed in A stock market in2009and2010, establishes a regression model, makesempirical research on the influence that the corporate governance structure effect on the auditquality. The results show that, the nature of equity and the audit quality is negatively related. So itis obvious to improve audit quality by reducing the ratio of state-owned shares in Chinese capitalmarket. Audit quality relates with the number of directors, the proportion of independent directors,syncreticing board chairman and general manager’s duty, but the correlation is not obvious. Therelationship between the three and audit quality also constrained by external factors.

The Performance Research on Mergers and Acquisitions of Listed Companies in China

On 13/09/2013, in Management, by rain

Through the means of M&A, firms expanded their operations, concentrated capital, optimized the allocation of resources, and achieved the goal of external growth. Merger and Acquisition (M&A) is an important method to enlarge and improve themselves for companies. In order to compete with other countries, especially developed countries, China must have its domestic companies enlarged and strengthened, so it is urgent for China to form competitive large multinational corporations through drawing on the Western countries’experience and using the tactics of M&A. Currently,the researches on M&A are fruitful in China, but compared with developed countries’,we find there are still many problems to be solved not only in practice but also in theory. Therefore, obviously, the research into M&A is very important and pressing.Currently, a large number of M&A activities emerging at home and abroad rapidly expand the scale of the enterprises beyond all doubt. But whether it is true to increase revenue for the shareholders, to create benefits for companies, to bring values for the society? In the past30years, the mature markets of western carry out a large number of academic research on the effects of M&A. But in general there is a big uncertainty about the value effect of acquisitions. At present China is still in transition economy period, the development of M&A market is particularly important. Therefor it is required to strengthen the research on M&A activity. One of the key on study is whether the M&A creates value.The research on M&A performance is always a hot spot in M&A theory, but still now, Researchers have not reach a consensus in M&A performance. Because of our particular Economic and Social environmen, the cause of M&A is complicated,so M&A performance is not an incontestable conclusion.It’s evident for us that examining and analyzing the M&A performance of listed companies in China is necessary.On the basis of summarizing empirical studies about domestic and international mergers and acquisitions, this paper sorts out109events and109sample companies on Shanghai and Shenzhen M&A events in2008.Using Principal component analysis, samples of listed companies before and after mergers and acquisitions on a total of four years (2007-2010) were carried out the financial index analysis and the empirical testing, then obtained the composite score for each sample every year. Through comparison of the composite scores, I draw the following conclusions:the average of synthetical scores in the merger year2008have significantly increased comparing to the pre-merger year2007; One year after the merger in2009,the scores have significantly increased comparing to the merger year2008; the second year after merger in2010, the average synthetical scores decreased,but still significantly higher than pre-merger year and merger year. Indicating that the sample companies to improve business performance through mergers and acquisitions, gaining synergies may be a short-term effect, and did not allow the full advantages of M&A reflected, the phenomenon of purpose for financial statements is obvious. Overall to some extent M&A can improve companies profitability and asset Management capabilities.Through the study of M&A, phenomenons like delayed reaction and overreaction reflect China’s securities market is not mature, the market speculativeness is strong, low maturity of the characteristics of emerging markets. Based on the results of this empirical study and the view of many scholars, combined with the development of the Western stock market history and development of China’s securities market, this paper views that the current improving the performance of listed companies M&A in China can be considered in two ways:one proceeds from the market rules establishment, improvement and supervision; the other hand proceeds from the concept transformation and improving the quality of the government, listed companies, investors, market intermediaries, the media and other market participants. Specifically put forward four targeted proposals:First, improving the legal system, regulate M&A behavior; Second, optimize the design of mergers and acquisitions; Third, do all we can to develop M&A intermediaries; Fourth,strengthen the M&A integration; Fifth, give full play to the supervisory role of the media to reduce the degree of information asymmetry; Sixth, standardize the government action in mergers and acquisitions.

On 13/09/2013, in Management, by rain

Supply chain Management has played an important role in the fierce market competition today, and supply chain performance is a reflection of total operation capacity. Every Enterprise comes to pay attention to improving supply chain performance from all aspects, and in this way enhances its competitiveness.Existing studies focus more on theoretical research of supply chain performance and establishment of evaluation index system, but less on influencing factors and their inner influencing mechanism. This paper considers major factors that supporting supply chain operation from the point of material flow, information flow and commercial flow and ignores the uncontrollable ones, taking environments factors as examples. Based on the characters of supply chain, this paper introduces the concept “logistics integration capability” and explores the relationships among and involving information sharing, cooperation. This paper aims to solve the problems including:(1) What are the main influencing factors for supply chain performance and what is the macroscopic system?(2) How is the influencing path diagram from factors to supply chain performance and among the factors like?(3) What kind of role does the logistics integration capability play in the influencing factors? Does it affected by other control variables?According to the Basic paradigm of empirical research, using the method of SEM (structural equation modeling), this paper clarified the relationships among cooperation relationships, information sharing, logistics integration capability and supply chain performance based on data collection and data analysis for manufacturing enterprises of China. The results shows that supply chain cooperation and information sharing both have a positive effect on supply chain logistics integration and have an indirect effect on supply chain total performance through the function of logistics integration; supply chain information sharing presents a positive effect on the performance of a single node Enterprise; Enterprise size plays regulating function on the relationship between logistics integration and supply chain performance.This paper confirms the testing results once again by corresponding case analysis, and also gives some Management advices.
