The impact of related party transactions on firm value: evidence from a developing country

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to address the impact of the related party transactions (RPTs) on firm value. The authors bring evidence from a usually ignored empirical setting: an African emerging market.

Design/methodology/approach: In particular, the authors focus on companies listed on the Egyptian stock market using a sample of EGX 30 from 2012 to 2017.

Findings: Unlike the literature, the authors find no significant relationship between RPTs and market value.

Practical implications: This research provides insights for policymakers and other interested parties concerning the perception of RPTs in Egypt.

Originality/value: The reported different findings of this study assure the intermediary role of the context and the local culture in the relationship between RPTs and firm value, in contrast to the negative view that is mostly reported in the literature.
