Corporate restructuring : does damage to institutional trust affect employee engagement?

Marais, Amelia 15 July 2012 (has links)
As a result of global competitiveness and a continuously changing business environment, organisations are constantly seeking for ways and means to enhance their profitability. The current organisational trend for businesses to gain competitive advantage is to restructure them to leaner and more flexible organisations. Businesses are striving to increase shareholder value by increasing performance through corporate restructuring to obtain an increase in efficiency and production. Unfortunately restructuring affects employees and could result in uncertainty with potential side effects in the work environment that could influence the employees‘ trust within the organisation. Damage to institutional trust, or trustworthiness as perceived by employees, could affect how employees engage within the organisation and impact on the profitability of such an organisation. A quantitative research study was conducted to determine if corporate restructuring affects institutional trust. It also investigated the relationship between institutional trust and employee engagement to determine if corporate restructuring affects employee engagement. The main findings of the research are that corporate restructuring has a profound impact on institutional trust and that damage to institutional trust affects how employees engage within the organisation. / Dissertation (MBA)--University of Pretoria, 2012. / Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) / unrestricted

Capital Structure in Corporate Carve-outs

Tompkins, Lindsay 01 January 2006 (has links)
A central question in corporate finance has been about the optimal balance between both debt and equity financing when trying to determine the optimal capital structure of a new or existing firm. In this thesis, I investigate how the capital structure of the parent and carve-out company evolve following the carve-out itself. This investigation is a direct extension of Dittmar's (2004) work and contributes to the literature on the choice of a carve-out or spin-off. This leverage choice may be influenced by the parent corporation's need for cash, either to finance growth opportunities, to distribute cash to shareholders, or to repay debt (Michaely & Shaw, 1995). Using a sample of 102 subsidiaries that have completed a carve-out between the years of 1985 and 2001 , I find that carve-outs do not have higher debt levels than spinoffs as reported in Dittmar's (2004) study. I also find that the parent firms ' leverage does not decrease as predicted. Leverage actually increases during the three years following the carve-out. I have also found that cash constraints, collateral value, and the parent firms ' pre-debt level are positively related to leverage choice while the parent firms' precarve- out cash constraint is negatively correlated. However, there is no significance between leverage and firm size, growth opportunities, or profitability.

As relações de trabalho na era globalizada: o desafio da ampliação da tutela aos trabalhadores.

Pessoa, Anna Stephanie de Brito Veiga 22 March 2013 (has links)
Made available in DSpace on 2015-05-07T14:27:12Z (GMT). No. of bitstreams: 1 ArquivoTotalAnna.pdf: 924596 bytes, checksum: c67e939ccad95dd2d696af42ba5a8afa (MD5) Previous issue date: 2013-03-22 / Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior / The paper focuses on the changes in the labor market towards the corporate restructuring, highlighting the emergence of a collective of workers, called parasubordinate workers or economically dependent self-employed. Therefore, a legal theoretic instrumental survey was undertaken, of qualitative nature, using dialectic and analytical methods to approach the subject. As procedure methods; historical, comparative and interpretation systems were applied, and finally indirect documentation was used as a research technique. The State restricted intervention in the economy facing the neoliberal policies enabled that companies promoted a productive restructuring, to mold to the context of international economies, dismantling the labor market structures. Precarious work was intensified in the 1990s, since it was up to the workers the choice between unemployment and working in precarious conditions, through atypical contracts. Subcontracting and outsourcing gained prominence in business decentralization, allowing companies to focus their attention only in activities related to the valorization of brands and their products, transferring to others the execution of the production process. The use of self-employed manpower without a stable relation took over society. The self-employed, with high or low qualifications are regimented to develop activities directly related to the business dynamics, consuming much of their workday, being unable, for them, to provide services to other companies. The Law, then, according to the parasubordination theory - the labor insertion tool used in Italy, and improved in Spain, through the Statute for Autonomous Work - aims to protect these workers who are legally independents but economically dependents, guaranteeing minimum rights to those who work either on their own, whether on behalf of others, giving an identity to the working class to mobilize and act searching for the achievement of its development. / Esta dissertação focaliza as mudanças ocorridas no mercado de trabalho diante da reestruturação empresarial, evidenciando o surgimento de um coletivo de trabalhadores, denominados de parassubordinados ou autônomos economicamente dependentes. Para tanto, foi empreendida uma pesquisa jurídica teórico-instrumental, de natureza qualitativa, utilizando os métodos dialético e analítico para a abordagem do tema. Como procedimento foram empregados os métodos histórico, comparativo e de interpretação e, por fim, utilizou-se como técnica de pesquisa, a documentação indireta. A restrita intervenção do Estado na economia em virtude das políticas neoliberais possibilitou que as empresas promovessem uma reestruturação produtiva para se moldarem ao contexto de economias internacionais, desmantelando as estruturas do mercado de trabalho. O trabalho precário intensificou-se na década de 1990, uma vez que aos trabalhadores cabia a escolha entre o desemprego e o trabalho em condições precárias, por meio de contratos atípicos. As subcontratações e terceirizações ganharam destaque na descentralização empresarial, permitindo que as empresas concentrem em si apenas atividades ligadas à valorização das marcas e dos seus produtos, transferindo para terceiros a execução do processo produtivo. A utilização de mão de obra autônoma sem um vínculo estável tomou conta da sociedade. Os trabalhadores autônomos, com alta ou baixa qualificação, são arregimentados para desenvolverem atividades diretamente ligadas à dinâmica empresarial, consumindo grande parte da sua jornada de trabalho, impossibilitando, assim, a prestação de serviços para outras empresas. O Direito, então, a partir da teoria da parassubordinação, instrumento de inserção laboral utilizado na Itália e aprimorado na Espanha, por meio do Estatuto do Trabalho Autônomo, visa proteger esses trabalhadores que são juridicamente autônomos, mas economicamente dependentes, garantindo direitos mínimos a todos aqueles que trabalham, seja por conta própria, seja por conta alheia, conferindo uma identidade à classe trabalhadora para se mobilizar e atuar em busca da concretização do seu desenvolvimento.

Cross-border Mergers and Acquisitions: The Case of Merger Control v. Merger Deregulation

Bedier, Mohammad El-Saied 29 April 2015 (has links)
During the last century, not only the legal literature but also the literature in many fields along with government efforts on all levels, were all mainly devoted to the debate of trade liberalization in general, and specifically to the case of the expected gains from using international agreements as a tool to remove the trade barriers. Meanwhile, all the parties have paid little attention to profound questions about identifying the impediments that they are facing and the other possible options that might maximize the general welfare, which are the cross-border merger and acquisition transactions. This dissertation will address that under-researched question, and it will try to identify some of those impediments that are facing the cross-border merger and acquisition transactions. The dissertation will mainly focus on the different premerger control laws that are adopted around the globe, as an impediment that faces the cross-border mergers and acquisitions, and it will try to identify the drawbacks of those laws and most importantly develop and examine reforming proposals. The underlying result of this dissertation will reveal that the multijurisdictional premerger control laws across the globe have numerous drawbacks that are actual impediments that face mergers and acquisitions in general, and especially the cross-border transactions. In addition to that, the best reformative option is the abolishing of the premerger control laws, or in other words the deregulation of the cross-border merger and acquisition transactions. The conclusion of this dissertation is that using the law as a useful tool should be reinvented on two dimensions, at one end of the spectrum the law should enable the state possibilities that are required to give a hand and facilitate the entry to markets, by abolishing the premerger control laws i.e. deregulating mergers and acquisitions, and at the other end of the spectrum the law should grant the state the power to monitor and challenge those practices that might cause harm to employees or consumers, before the courts, along with the primary power to challenge anticompetitive behaviors.

企業重整 / Corporate Restructuring

龔宗惠, Kung, Tsung-Hui Handon Unknown Date (has links)
企業重整乃是在企業經營循環中, 不論是自發或是被迫都必然要經歷的過程. 這個過程可以幫助公司成長成巨型的國際企業, 協助公司增加或轉換不同的商品或服務, 或是從危機中存活下來. 在今日的企管領域中, 有許多的工具可以協助企業能得到較好的重整結果. 當企業重整是因為財務危機而啟動時, 如何與債權人重新架構債務結構成為最重要且急需處理的事務. 在此之後, 一個依績效設計的獎勵制度會決定這個遭遇麻煩的公司, 會如何以及何時爬出財務困難的泥淖. 在本研究中會用一個臺灣上市公司宏達科技股份有限公司(股票代碼:3004), 來闡述重新架構債務結構, 和依績效設計的獎勵制度對公司重整的影響. / Corporate restructuring is a process that every enterprise will have to voluntarily or involuntarily go through in its life cycle in order to grow to a bigger company, to increase or change to different products or services, or to survive from a crisis. In today’s business world, there are many tools that can help the company to get a better result out of the restructuring process. When the corporate restructuring is initiated due to a financial distress, how to restructure the debt with creditors is the first and most important issue to be resolved. After that, a pay-for-performance system will decide the scale and the speed that a company can get out of the troubles. A Taiwan company, National Aerospace Fasteners Corporation (NAFCO) is used to better understand the impact of debt handling and pay-for-performance system.
