Abstract/Summary

The paper intends to study if there is a significant change in the financial performance of firms in the industrial sector after they release their initial public offering (IPO). A total of 20 firms were sampled that was within the timeframe of 2000-2013. The researchers tested the significance between the prior year and three years after with the use of the Wilcoxon signed rank test to obtain the median value per sub-sector (construction, infrastracture and allied services, electrical components and equipment, electricity, energy, power and water, and food, beverage and tobacco) as well as the industrial sector as a whole. With a 5% level of significance, the proponents arrived at an impressive result.
