2007 (English)In: 4th International Conference on Applied Financial Economics: Samos, Greece, 12-14 July, 2007Conference paper (Other academic)
One hundred and thirty (130) Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) occurring on the Stockholm Stock Exchange (SSE) between 1996 and 2006 were examined to test hypotheses based upon DiMaggio and Powell’s institutional isomorphisms. Union representation lent credence to the hypothesis about coercive isomorphism. Industry groupings supported the concept of mimetic isomorphism while normative isomorphism was tenuously supported.
