Corporate Governance Implications of Foreign Stock Exchange Listing (or Cross-listing) for China’s Corporations

MA, SHUANG (2013) Corporate Governance Implications of Foreign Stock Exchange Listing (or Cross-listing) for China’s Corporations. Doctoral thesis, Durham University.

PDF - Accepted Version


The first company from the People’s Republic of China listed outside Mainland China was an H-share enterprise listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange on July 15, 1993. In the twenty years since then, the rapid development of the Mainland’s economy has created a climate in which China’s companies can internationalise, and some of China’s heavyweight State-owned Enterprises (SOEs) even tried to accelerate their overseas investment by means of transnational acquisitions and mergers. This thesis undertakes a detailed theoretical and empirical study exploring the corporate governance practices of Chinese companies that have listed on foreign stock exchanges; of particular interest has been the influence that foreign listing has exerted on the corporate governance practices of these Chinese companies. Several experts and scholars have provided valuable criticisms and remarks as part of the fieldwork for this thesis. A number of major propositions concerning the corporate governance of overseas listed Chinese companies are discussed and fieldwork data has been collected to test these propositions.
