多元化公司整体上市和分拆上市的理论与实践在国际市场已经较为成熟,而对于中国A股来说,分拆上市一直受制于政策;2019年以来,随着科创板的开启及A股将迎来的改革,多元化公司分拆上市也将迎来重要机遇。 多年来,学术界对于多元化公司在资本市场方面的研究主要聚焦于估值比较、相关影响因素以及整体上市和者分拆上市的法律、财务、风险等方面。而本文在已有理论基础上,从股权集中度、新兴行业、跨市场上市(A+H)三个方面研究中国多元化公司的整体或者分拆上市的行为选择,研究发现:大股东持股比例更高的公司更倾向于整体上市,新兴行业或者创新性的子公司更可能被分拆上市,跨多个股票市场上市的公司更倾向分拆上市子公司,这与委托代理理论和信息不对称理论的预测一致。 为了让研究更加全面并具实用性,本文加入了对中国平安集团和温氏集团的案例分析,还针对中介投行和研究人员的特定人群进行分析式调研,结果均较好支持了研究结论,使得本文的研究兼具理论创新和实际指导价值。 关键词: 中国多元化公司,整体上市,分拆上市,股权集中度,新兴行业,跨市场上市 Dissertation/Thesis

我国上市公司股东采取股权质押贷款方式融资非常普遍,股权质押贷款总余额已经高达5.70万亿元,这些贷款背后隐藏着巨大的风险。上市公司大股东采用股权质押贷款的动机可能是对未来乐观行业预期的资金需求,或者是由于股权转让的限制而采取的变相套现转移风险。后者的动机里本身就包含着上市公司大股东对自身股价已经估值过高的判断。本文通过分析上市公司股权质押贷款风险 (即,上市公司当年股价估值程度与上市公司下一年股价崩盘风险之间的关系)会因为股权质押动机的不同而存在差异。只有在套现动机下,当年股价估值程度才会导致下一年显著的股价崩盘风险,而在融资动机下当年股价估值程度与下一年股价崩盘风险之间的关系则呈现负相关。鉴于目前大多数上市公司并不会披露大股东质押所得资金的具体去向,本文通过融资约束程度这个维度对上市公司大股东股权质押的动机进行识别。当上市公司所受融资约束较低时,当年股价高估程度程度越大,下一年股价崩盘风险越大(正相关),上市公司进行股权质押的动机更倾向于高位套现。在融资约束程度高的情况下,上市公司股权质押更倾向于融资,当年股价估值程度越大,下一年上市公司股价崩盘风险越小(负相关)。 在大股东控制权高的情况下,对于所受融资约束程度低的上市公司,独立董事不论是比例高或者低,独立董事制度对大股东的股票质押的行为 (套现动机)无影响。 对于所受融资约束程度高的上市公司,独立董事在占比高时,对通过股票质押来融资的行为有强化作用,可以表现出其治理影响力,在独董占比低的情况下则无法产生作用。 Dissertation/Thesis

本文是针对A股上市公司的社会价值所进行的模型开发与量化评估研究。 公司的社会价值,在本文中界定为公司所实现的经济、社会和环境等方面的综合贡献。随着全球和中国越来越重视可持续发展,公司的社会价值也越来越引起资本市场投资者的关注。 研究以具有原创性的“上市公司社会价值评估模型”为工具,以沪深300成分股为对象,以上市公司的经济、社会和环境的综合贡献为内容,筛选出社会价值量化得分居前99位的公司,形成义利99榜单和指数。 基于该模型和义利99榜单,博时基金已经发布了“博时中证可持续发展100指数”ETF产品(515090),标志着“义利99”从一项研究变成了可交易的基金产品。 “上市公司社会价值评估模型” ,将公司的社会价值分为三个方面,即目标、方式和效益。 “目标” (AIM)是建设更高质量、更有效率、更加公平和更可持续的美好未来,这是公司社会价值的驱动力; “方式” (APPROACH)是指创新的生产技术、运营模式和管理机制,这是公司社会价值的创新力; “效益” (ACTION)是指公司的经济、社会和环境的贡献,这是公司社会价值的转化力。该模型也称 “社会价值三A三力三合一模型” ,简称3A模型。 通过义利99指数和博时中证可持续发展100指数长达五年以上的回测分析发现,这些公司有相对更好、更平稳的市场表现,这两个指数存在Fama-French因子不能解释的超额收益率,即具有显著的正α。回归分析还显示,义利两个属性的因子都能贡献超额收益,但股票月收益率与利的指标成显著正向线性相关,与义的指标成正向线性相关但关系较弱。 “义利99” 是将上市公司对经济、社会和环境的贡献纳入模型进行量化评估的探索,有利于资本市场更好地关注上市公司的社会价值,并促进上市公司将社会价值纳入长期战略安排。 随着更多上市公司更好地承担起信息披露的责任,“义利99”未来将不会局限于沪深300,会有更广泛的应用。中国上市公司终将成为推动世界可持续发展的新动力。 Dissertation/Thesis

Two-sided online platforms are typically plagued by hidden information (adverse selection) and hidden actions (moral hazard), limiting market efficiency. Under the context of the increasingly popular online labor contracting platforms, this dissertation investigates whether and how IT-enabled monitoring systems can mitigate moral hazard and reshape the labor demand and supply by providing detailed information about workers’ effort. In the first chapter, I propose and demonstrate that monitoring records can substitute for reputation signals such that they attract more qualified inexperienced workers to enter the marketplace. Specifically, only the effort-related reputation information is substituted by monitoring but the capability-related reputation information. …

本文采用2010年1月1日至2017年12月31日在香港主板IPO上市的共574家公司作为研究样本,系统采集包括与发行人、承销商、投资人、发行热度、市场每日交易数据等相关的数据近100项,对超额配售选择权在香港IPO中的实际效用进行实证研究,研究发现:1)超额配售选择的确可以起到提高发行价格,降低IPO抑价率的作用,但是同时也是破发的主要原因。2)由超额配售选择权赋予承销商稳价行为中,市场买入量越大,最大回撤越大,市场下跌风险越大同时超额配售选择权还导致了最大回撤日的推后,增大了稳价结束后的市场风险,而这很有可能是由于承销商追求更高利益造成的。3)没有证据显示,超额配售选择权会降低承销商的佣金比例,但是,超额配售选择权却为承销商带来非常高的额外收益,而这个收益与市场下跌幅度和承销商从市场购买股份的比例直接相关。 其中,本文首次对最大回撤率、最大回撤日与承销商市场买入量之间的关系进行实证研究,揭示了承销商市场买入量与承销商收益正相关,与最大回撤率负相关,与最大回撤日正相关的关系,可能是增加市场下跌风险的因素。这与现有理论中及监管机构的预期中,“超额配售选择权具有向上稳定价格的作用”是有一定偏差的。 根据研究结果,本文首先建议发行人要客观对待超额配售选择权提升发行价格的作用,以免引起破发。其次建议市场投资人要客观认识超额配售选择权的作用,不要由于超额配售选择权的存在给与发行过高的认同价格。再次建议发行人要能够认识到超额配售选择权是承销商零成本获得的一个有固定收益保障的看空期权,是承销商在承销IPO时的收益之一,而股价下跌幅度与承销商的收益正相关。因此要对承销商的稳价行为进行一定管控,同时可以因为超额配售选择权的存在而要求更低的承销佣金比例。最后建议承销商要维护市场公平,爱护自己的声誉,尽可能避免因超额配售选择权的使用对市场造成不应有的干扰。 Dissertation/Thesis

中医药是中华文明的瑰宝,中药材是中医药文化和产业的核心。随着近年来国家相关政策出台,中药材产业的发展备受瞩目。由于中药材产业链条长,层级多,各层级间信息不对称,因而中药材市场普遍具有“假”、“乱”、“杂”的问题。 A公司的中药材全产业链服务商模式,通过对上游各主要专营商的整合,形成一定的平台综合集采能力,并开始得到下游医药厂家、药店认可,在市场逐步形成品牌号召力。本文实证研究A公司商业模式的转型对中药材市场价格的影响,进而分析中药材全产业链服务商模式在中药材行业健康发展中所发挥的积极作用。研究结果表明,上下游产销结合的中药材全产业链服务商模式,只有在形成一定收购规模,对市场价格产生一定影响的时候,才能充分释放药材质量的信号,润滑药材交易市场,提高收购价格,增加市场波动率,发挥价格发现作用。由于中药材市场的信息不对称程度较高,如果产销结合模式仍处于初级开创阶段,产销结合模式释放的药材质量信号则不足以全面改善信息不对称的状况。 Dissertation/Thesis

中国商品期货市场经历30年发展,已初备协调资源分配、对冲经营风险的功能。但受产业自身和期货市场发展的制约,各期货品种市场有效性参差不齐。随着我国经济从增量阶段过渡到存量阶段,期货作为企业的价格管理和风险控制工具的重要性日益凸显,因此研究我国商品期货市场有效性具有非常好的现实意义。 本文开创性的从期货的基本功能——资源配置的角度出发,提出有效市场是指其期货价格能够对本行业社会资源起到合理的调配作用的市场。在内容安排上,本文首先总结了现有国际成熟期货品种的特点并找出能够反映期货对资源配置能力的四个指标假说,分别为期现回归性、利润波动性、库存波动性以及现金流变化,然后通过数学模型证明指标数据和品种成熟度的关联,最后应用该套指标对我国商品市场有效性进行检验。数学方法上,本文先采用Bai-Perron内生多重结构突变模型对时间序列进行突变点检验,然后对断点时间序列分别进行多元回归,并在剔除季节性和周期性后,通过平稳性检验、ARCH效应检验结果来确定相应的Garch模型,并用Garch模型来描述时间序列的波动性。 通过数学验证,我们认为期现回归性、利润波动性、库存波动性以及现金流变化这四个指标可以作为反映期货成熟度的检验指标,用该套方法对国内部分活跃品种检验后发现大连豆粕期货已经具备成熟品种的特征,本文认为豆粕期货市场是有效的;PTA、玉米淀粉期货的四个检验指标在近年来表现出时间序列优化的特点,但因时间较短尚不稳定,可以认为是接近成熟的品种;而螺纹钢和铝期货在多数指标上表现不佳,表明他们对社会资源配置能力较差,因此本文认为螺纹钢和铝期货市场是活跃但非有效的。通过进一步分析,本文认为品种的期现回归性差是制约其资源配置能力发挥的关键因素,而交易标的不明确、 仓单制作难度大、产业参与度低以及期货设计中的其他限制因素又是导致期现回归性差的重要原因。 Dissertation/Thesis

近年来,金融领域各行业采用和移动互联网技术相结合的方式,发展异常迅猛。金融科技率先催生了近4万家P2P网络借贷平台,这些平台在利用移动金融技术与主流传统银行竞争的过程中,占据了大量技术和市场优势。结合我国农村商业银行发展现状,如果农商行能够有效利用移动金融技术优势,则其运营成本或会降低,获客效率、服务多样性等或将得以有效提升,从而使其竞争力得以提高, 更好地服务农民、农村和农业经济。本文旨在系统地探究以手机银行APP为代表的移动金融科技对农商行行间竞争力影响。 本文搜集了全国84家农商行APP数据,定量地从业务覆盖范围、增值服务全面性、易用性、安全性、系统稳定性等五个维度对APP给出综合质量评分,并采用层次分析法给出各农商行竞争力排名。在系统地分析银行竞争力与其APP质量、发布时间、更新次数等相关关系后,总体发现APP质量对银行竞争力至关重要。具体地,排名下降的农商行的年均更新次数与排名变化正相关,也即年均更新次数越多的银行,排名上升越多;而对排名上升的农商行,年均更新次数与排名变化则呈现负相关。竞争力排名上升的农商行,其APP平均发布时间与排名变化呈正相关,而竞争力排名下降的农商行的平均发布时间与排名变化则呈负相关。 进一步地,基于《中国商业银行竞争力报告》中对农商行的排名,本文进一步分析了移动金融科技对不同规模的农商行竞争力排名影响。研究发现:对于资产规模较大(>1000亿元)的农商行,APP年平均更新次数较多的银行,往往竞争力排名有所提高。而对于中等及小资产规模的农商行而言,APP年平均更新次数较多的银行,往往竞争力排名有所下降。对于较大和较小规模的农商行,APP平均发布时间长反而会降低银行竞争力,而对于中等规模的农商行,较长的平均发布时间下,其竞争力会有所提高。 最后,针对本文定量的研究模型和实证数据,本文给出了具体研究结论及展望,并就如何提高农村商业银行竞争力,给出了建议方法以及相关政策性建议。 Dissertation/Thesis 农商银行App使用情况调查结果表 农商银行App财务、持续竞争力数据调查结果表

摘要 当前中国农村集体经济呈现出后劲不足、区域失衡等问题。在此背景下,如何破解集体经济发展困境、实现其从梯度到均衡的演进成为学术领域关注的热点。本文梳理总结了国内外集体经济的相关研究成果,阐述了主要涉及的基础概念、理论和方法模型;以2008~2015年无锡市滨湖区92个村为研究样本,分析了该区域集体经济的发展现状和演变进程;构建面板回归模型,探索了该区域集体经济发展的驱动因素与分布不平衡性;并从空间关联视角切入,探索了驱动因素的溢出效应;最后基于研究结果提出对策建议。主要结论如下: (1)2008~2015年,92个村的村级集体经济发展整体呈现上升趋势,但地区间的贫富差距明显;2008年、2011年和2015年92个村按村级集体经济总收入可划分为高、中、低3类,并且在不同时段,各等级间的村级集体单位会相互迁移;集体经济收入呈现明显的右偏分布,尖峰厚尾的特征显著。随着时间的推移,集体经济发展出现了“双峰趋同”的现象。 (2)普通面板回归显示,物质资本、经济工作能力、科技进步对于村级集体经济发展有正向的依次减弱的影响,人口数量的影响为负;面板分位数回归显示,随着分位数水平的提高,物质资本系数先上升、后下降再上升;经济工作能力系数逐渐减小;人口规模系数先下降后上升;科技进步系数波动上升。 (3)空间计量结果显示,各变量对于村级集体经济发展具有一定的溢出效应,其中,物质资本的溢出效应为正(不显著),经济工作能力的溢出效应为正(显著),人口因素的溢出效应为负(不显著),科技进步的溢出效应为正(显著)。 本文的创新之处在于使用较难获取的2008-2015年92个村面板数据进行回归,相比于截面数据,更准确地测度了各要素对集体经济的真实影响;将空间关联因素纳入研究视域,探究了村级集体经济驱动因素的空间溢出效应。 Dissertation/Thesis

The first two chapters investigate how consumers choose to share their experiences of different attributes, how their preferences are reflected in numerical ratings and textual reviews, whether and how multi-dimensional rating systems affect consumer satisfaction through product ratings, and whether and how multi-dimensional rating systems affect the interplay between numerical ratings and textual reviews. The identification strategy of the observational study hinges on a natural experiment on …

As an alternative to the traditional public transportation system, (urban) rail transit has many advantages such as large capacity, fast speed, tight schedule, safety and comfort, and punctuality, , and has gradually become a top choice of many cities in countering environmental pollution and optimizing traffic quality. At the same time, we must also see that huge amounts of capital are required for the construction of rail transit. The traditional reliance on government investment clearly has its own limitations. The investment not only has a long cost-recovery cycle and a low rate of return, but also hardly attracts investments from …
