Abstract: Several studies have explored the nonlinear relationship between insider ownership and post-IPO firm performance, whereas the inter-relationship among pre-IPO cash contribution, insider ownership and firm performance has not been investigated. Our study attempts to do so for an emerging economy, India using panel data of 199 IPO firms for the sample period of 2007 to 2018. Results indicate that there is a nonlinear relationship between insider ownership and post-IPO firm performance with lower ownership levels indicating positive impact and higher ownership levels indicating negative impact. Further, the study finds that pre-IPO cash contribution of owners has a long-term increasing negative impact, though these results significantly differ across varying levels of insider ownership. The study controls for endogeneity in the variables.
