    University essay from Umeå universitet/Arkitekthögskolan vid Umeå universitet

    Author : Mohammed Selander; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Throughout the report, I argue for the virtues of allowing the contentious fictional narratives of poetry, theatre and myth to take place in the public's consciousness. In an attempt to deal with the spread of misinformation, societies have tended to favor censorship, which only deals with a symptom at the cost of the public's critical thinking. READ MORE

  3. 3. Banking Relationships and first-day IPO Performance - Evidence from ex-ante pricing of Swedish firms

    University essay from Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för finansiell ekonomi

    Author : Marcus Undén; Christoffer Begander; [2019]
    Keywords : Initial Public Offering; Underpricing; Information Asymmetries; Banking Relationships;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to investigate how pre-Initial Public Offering (IPO) banking relationships affect the level of underpricing for Swedish firms. By studying a sample of 273 IPOs between 2014 and 2018, no support for a signaling effect that reduces information uncertainty for investors can be concluded since firms with a pre-IPO lending relationship do not experience a lower level of underpricing.

The question is approached by estimating the elasticity of demand for CO2 emissions, with respect to the total energy price and, separately, for the carbon tax. READ MORE
