Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this study, we examine whether the adoption of convergent-IFRS in China reduces IPO underpricing, which is of interest to investors and regulators. Using panel data from 2,666 non-financial IPOs of A-shares listed on the Shanghai and Shenzhen Stock Exchanges between 1996 and 2019, the study shows that the adoption of convergent-IFRS mitigates the phenomenon of IPO underpricing in China and this transition benefit is not moderated by the proportion of SOEs. We fill the gap in the literature with a contribution to global evidence on the adoption of IFRS standards.
