5 Page 5 of 6 PAPER ABSTRACTS Dissertation Strategic Information Disclosure When There Is Fundamental Disagreement: an Empirical Investigation Essay 1 Job Market Paper Information Asymmetry, Investor-Management Disagreement, Firm Value, and the Strategic Information Disclosure The current study sets out to empirically investigate the managements decision to voluntarily disclose strategic information. Particularly, I empirically test the recent propositions of (Thakor, 2014), which relate the firm s propensity to disclose strategic information to the level of investor-management disagreement and the intrinsic value of the firm. I use a unique hand-collected data set to conduct the study. Furthermore, the crosssectional relation between the magnitude of investors response to the strategic information announcements and the degree of investor-management disagreement, firm-, industry-, and macro-level characteristics is examined. Essay 2 Corporate Governance, Strategic Information Disclosure, and the Disclosure Bonus The study sets out to empirically investigate the managements decision to voluntarily disclose strategic information. I propose to empirically test the recent propositions of (Thakor, 2014), which relate the firm s propensity to disclose strategic information to the quality of corporate governance. The association between corporate governance and strategic disclosure is investigated using several proxies for bonding and monitoring mechanisms of corporate governance. Furthermore, I investigate presence of a disclosure bonus, which is paid to managers as compensation for voluntary disclosure of strategic information. The cross-sectional variation of the amount of strategic information disclosure and its effect on executive compensation and its structure is also examined. Corporate Diversification and Firm Value during Economic Downturns This paper examines the effect of corporate diversification on firm value during periods of economic downturns. Analysis of diversified firms valuation during recessionary periods reveals a significant increase in relative value of diversified firms. The observed improvement in the relative valuation is only a temporary phenomenon, which disappears in the four quarters following the trough of the recession. We do not find support to the hypothesis that the improvement in relative valuation of diversified firms during economic downturns is attributed to the ability of diversified firms to utilize broader external capital markets. We demonstrate that the improvement in relative valuation is largely driven by diversified firms that are financially constrained, and, therefore, attribute the observed improvement to more efficient internal capital allocation during recessions.

6 Page 6 of 6 Tax-Induced Trading: the Effect of Capital Gain Tax Changes Prospect theory suggests that people perceive economic losses and gains differently. We apply the theory to examine the effect of confirmed and tentative changes in capital gain taxes on tax-induced trading. Investors adjust their trading in response to tax changes: They reduce trading of winners more than increase trading of losers in the event of a tax decrease (and vice versa in the event of a tax increase) and treat tentative tax increase similar to a confirmed one. These findings have important policy implications: Uncertainty about impending tax rate changes alters investors trading behavior and may affect government tax collections. Choose Wisely: Auction or Negotiation? This study examines the impact of the method used to sell a firm, auction or negotiation, across different stages of the acquisition process. We find that negotiations are associated with higher first bids and lower leakage than auctions. By relaxing a key assumption of auction theory, namely, the multiple bidder assumption, this study illustrates a special case in which the acquirer benefits from a failed auction (i.e., attempted auction that secures only one bidder). Controlling for firm specific and transaction specific characteristics, we show that failed auctions are associated with the lowest final premiums and highest acquirer returns, compared with both successful auctions and pure negotiations. We attribute these findings to the shift of bargaining power from the target to the acquirer. Additionally, we identify firm and transaction attributes that characterize failed auctions. Oil Price Shocks and Conditional Exchange Rate Volatility This study investigates the effects of energy price shocks on exchange rate volatility in five major energy-producing countries (Russia, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, and Norway). There are noticeable differences in the behavior of the exchange rate between emerging markets and advanced economies. Russia and Brazil exhibit different patterns from those of Canada and Norway in the direction and magnitude of conditional exchange rate volatility. Our VAR analysis indicates that a one-standard-deviation increase in oil prices causes all currencies to appreciate after the shock, but the post-shock adjustment process is relatively short in Norway and Canada and longer in Russia, Brazil, and Mexico. Our empirical analysis reveals that there is evidence of positive overshooting in Russia and Brazil, and negative overshooting in Canada and Mexico.
