Distraction by institutional shareholders leads to a higher cost of debt financing. Whether shareholder inattention matters from a bondholder perspective is the subject of this week’s Goodman School of Business Luncheon Speaker Series.
On Friday, April 9, Omrane Guedhami will present co-authored research that looks deeper into this issue during his talk, Institutional Shareholder Distraction, Agency Conflicts and the Cost of Debt.
Guedhami is a Professor of International Finance at the University of South Carolina’s Moore School of Business, where he looks at corporate governance, privatization, national culture and corporate social responsibility. His current research examines the factors of post-privatization performance changes and the impacts.
The Goodman Luncheon Speaker Series provides an informal opportunity to listen and discuss recent advances in research, teaching and practices with business colleagues virtually.
The webinar will run from 12:30 to 2 p.m. on Microsoft Teams and is open for anyone to attend. RSVP to receive a link to the session by emailing Jasmine Stasiuk Riddell at email@example.com
