Corporate Finance 1: Private Equity and Entrepreneurial Finance explores the growing interest in everything "corporate" that is fueled by a healthy combination of fundamental theoretical developments and recent widespread access to large transactional databases. This handbook takes stock of the main empirical findings across a spectrum of corporate finance issues, ranging from econometric methodology to raising capital and capital structure choice. Through three volumes in this series, users will examine corporate investment behavior and explore governance topics using large-sample data descriptions, informal hypothesis testing, and structural tests of theory.With researchers employing a wide spectrum of econometric techniques, institutional settings, and market structures in order to distill the central message in the data, these volumes represent an enormous effort in systematizing and analyzing the most important subjects in corporate finance.
