We examine the association between corporate governance and return volatility at life-cycle stages of mining cash-box firms. We are motivated to examine the information environment of mining firms, in particular cash-box explorers that are searching for a resource, as these firms’ information environment is often characterised by high information asymmetry. The information asymmetry might be mitigated through changes in corporate governance that accompanies a firm life-cycle milestone. Mining firms typically move through distinct life-cycle milestones, starting with the cash-box stage, and are often much weaker in the corporate governance mechanisms during the early explorer phase compared to other industries. In order to attract investment in the firm, the corporate governance mechanisms may be adapted to signal quality of the firm and in turn reduce information asymmetries. We examine resources firms in the period 2003 to 2013 for the association between changes in corporate governance mechanisms with return volatility
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
