Does Corporate Governance Influence Acquiring Firm Performance? Evidence from IT and Ites Industry
Debi Prasad Satapathy and S R Mohapatra

The purpose of the study is to investigate the effect of corporate governance mechanism on acquiring firm performance of IT and ITES industries. The study has used a sample of 38 mergers in the IT sector of Indian firms during the period 2004-2014. The abnormal returns of the acquiring firm have been estimated by applying event study methodology and the impact of corporate governance mechanism is analyzed by using cross-sectional regression analysis. The result of the study shows that corporate governance variables, namely, board size, board independence, and CEO duality, do influence the acquiring firm performance. The present study shows that acquiring firm generates positive wealth effect to the shareholders in different window periods. The study also found that leverage of the firm is a significant control variable that influences the acquiring firm performance.

The Role of Corporate Governance in Determining IPO Survival
Garima Baluja

Corporate governance has long been recognized as one of the prominent factors that leads to the financial distress of a firm. Corporate governance simply refers to the way a corporate is governed, controlled and managed in an effective and transparent manner. Most of the studies have examined the association between corporate governance attributes with firm's performance as well as survival. However, it has been observed that if corporate governance attributes influence the performance as well as survival of the firm, this surely would have some link with the survival of Initial public offering (IPO) in the aftermarket. Considering this viewpoint, a few researchers have started exploring the linkage between corporate governance attributes and IPO survival across the world. The studies have taken several measures of corporate governance such as board size, board independence, ownership concentration and dual leadership structure, and found significant results for the same with IPO survival. However, there still persists a huge gap in this area as far as Indian IPO market is concerned. No study has explored the concept of IPO survival in the context of corporate governance in India. Hence, this paper attempts to reconnoiter the role of corporate governance in determining IPO survival and intensively reviews the existing literature on corporate governance and IPO survival.

The Impact of CG and CSR Index on Profitability
Neha Kumar and Parul Kumar

The shareholders cannot take every decision for the company so they appoint the board of directors as their representatives and auditors for their satisfaction that conduct of the company is fairly managed by the directors. Board of directors are responsible for all the activities conducted in the organization. The purpose of corporate governance is to facilitate the interest of stakeholders and ensure effective running of the organization without any hindrances. Also, the way a company carries its business activities impacts the society and the environment at large. Thus, Corporate Social Responsibility, in general, aims to think beyond the profitability of a company but to realize their duty and obligations for society. This paper attempts to study how the two concepts CSR & CG impact the firm's performance and then how the two impact each other.
