For the above metioned meaning, there should be am overall INTRODUCTION 1. Relevance of the study assessment of the Vietnamese companies’ capital structure in order The issue of determination of optimal capital structure at a to understand the fundamental features of the firm’s financing certain point of time has been a challenge for any company. In fact, policy. The objective is not to see whether the firm’s existing capital hardly anyone can solve the optimal capital structure problem. structure is optimal or not, but to analyze the factors affecting the Companies often determine a certain level (or a range) of target Vietnamese companies’ capital structure, thereby helping the firm capital structure before making the capital structure decision. In making capital structure policy effectively in the coming time. In order to estimate this target capital structure, the financial managers spite of a number of studies on the firm’s financing policy should specify the determinants of firm’s capital structure, based on undertaken in developing countries such as China, India, Pakistan, that the company’s target capital structure for each particular period Thailand, the Central East European countries etc., few studies have is estimated. been carried out to investigate the factors affecting the firm’s capital During the last decades, there have been many studies on the structure in Vietnam. firm’s capital structure. Most of the studies use modern theory The topic “A study of the factors affecting the capital models to explain the capital structure choice and provide empirical structure of the companies listed on Vietnam stock market” was evidence on the explainability of the models in practice. The object chosen for this PhD thesis and is expected to fill the gaps in the of study is the listed companies in developed countries that have previous studies. much similarity in institutional condition, particularly the US, 2. Research objectives and questions Europe, Japan etc. Previous studies not only analyze the effect of 2.1. firm-specific factors, but also explore the impacts of the economic environment and industry factors on the firm’s capital structure.

These companies are at different asset size, operating in different businesses, and therefore are able to represent the whole companies 7 8 in the economy. The total research sample is 193 non-financial Data are collected through online survey questionare.

Choosing the estimated models: OLS, FEM and REM Firstly, compared to other companies around the world, The Breusch and Pagan Lagrangian multiplier (LM test) Vietnamese listed companies currently have high debt ratio; shows that the Pooled OLS model is unsuitable. The Hausman test Secondly,most of company’s borrowings are bank loans, which are indicates that, for all the regression models of the three dependent short-term and unstable, affecting the company’s long-term variables, the Fixed Effect Model (FEM) is more efficient than the investment plan. Thirdly,fundraising activities are basically irrational, not completely based on the company’s fund uses demand. The above mentioned drawbacks are caused by the following Random Effect Model (REM). 4.1.1.2. Tests for model specification Multicollinearity check reasons: First, our economy heavily relies on the banking system Results of this test show that VIF associated with all the which is estimated to account for 80% of total assets of the whole variables are less than 5. Therefore, there is little evidence of financial system, the remainder are shared by the securities market, multicollinearity between variables. insurance companies etc. Second, the bond market is still immature Serial correlation check and unattractive to the investors, therefore, doesn’t play the Using the Lagram- Multiplier test to check the serial significant role in medium and long-term fundraising for the the correlation for panel data, the results indicate the existence of serial listed companies through debt instrument issuance.

Third, individual investors are the major participant, whereas the area of business to decide whether they should maintain their risk attitude and how the risk aversion may affect the company’s institutional investors play a limited role on the securities market.

This difference might Due to the limitation of data collection, this thesis measures limit the explanatory power of capital structure theory in Vietnam. the company’s capital structure using accounting based value of the Tax shield and bankrupcy cost are not the determinants of the capital components rather than a market based value. Besides, there company’s capital structure. Factors relating to the asymmetric could be other factors that affect the capital structure of the information between the company and lenders (banks) have a great companies but are still not accounted for in the model. Therefore, a impact on the listed company’s capital structure policy. Whereas, the larger, comprehensive and detailed database is recommended to company’s agency cost of equity does not significantly affect its design new variables to reflect the effect of other qualitative factors capital structure. In addition, the capital structure is also affected by such as the corporate governance, the institutional and industy the company’s managerial factors. Although the analysis results are, influence. Also, other research methods could be applied that allow a to some extent, consistent with that in other countries, the more detailed evaluation about the capital choice decisions of the explainability of the corporate finance theories for the Vietnamese companies in Vietnam. listed companies is limited due to the subjective reasons from the company’s perspective and the objective reasons from the perspective of the nature of the economic structure in the transitional period and the status of development of Vietnam’s financial market. Based on results from the analysis, the thesis has found the solution to improve capital structure of the listed companies, and moreover, proposes recommendations to the government and regulatory authorities to create a favourable setting for the companies 23 24
