This article is concerned with the complicated interrelationships between corporate governance, the performance of IPO firms, and private equity financiers. It studies the effectiveness of firm-level signals that are connected to private equity ownership patterns and then compares the governance roles of two types of IPO private equity investors, namely the “informal” and “formal” private equity investors. This article also demonstrates how performance can vary depending on governance structures.
