Abstract

This paper is the first study on the effects of pay-performance sensitivity (PPS) on the performance of initial public offerings (IPOs) in the presence of social ties and family ties of the top managers with board members. We find that both social ties and family ties increase PPS. In turn, PPS improves IPO performance. More importantly, greater PPS increases the positive effect of social ties on IPO performance whereas it reduces the negative effect of family ties.

Keywords: initial public offerings (IPOs), family ties, social ties, pay-performance sensitivity, homophily.

JEL Classification: G32, G34.
