  • Sukuk restructuring primarily aims at offering a debtor more latitude, in form and time, to settle his obligations. To meet Shari'ah requirements of transferring assets to Sukuk holders in asset-based Sukuk, the originator usually transfers the beneficial ownership to the issuer special purpose vehicles (SPV). However, in asset-backed Sukuk, the originator sells the underlying asset to an SPV and Sukuk holders do not have recourse to the originator in the event of defaults. Among some key unresolved Shari'ah issues in this regard is whether a change of contract necessitates entering a new contract. Other related issues that conflict with the tenets of Shari'ah are: (1) Sukuk structuri...

  • Islamic finance has gained momentum in the world today. Irrespective of faith conviction, it has been accepted as a mode of financing in the world. The development of Islamic finance was gradual in the past. At the initial stage of its development, Islamic finance was concerned more with Shariah compliance of transactions and contracts used in it. Subsequently, focus was realigned on Shariah harmonisation with respect to juristic views and Shariah governance. Islamic finance encompasses some fundamental religious prohibitions and the promotion of certain virtues enshrined in Islam, to be observed in all ramifications of business dealings, including services provision. Therefore, Islam...

  • Poverty alleviation is at the top of the Millennium Development Goals' (MDGs) list of eight goals. In the year 2000, nearly all heads of states and governments met and reaffirmed their faith in the United Nations (UN) as necessary foundations of a more peaceful, prosperous and just world. At this meeting, the MDGs were adopted which the first goal is eradicate extreme poverty and hunger. The question of how to finance poverty reduction measures has been a major concern for policy makers and international organizations for many years. Although it is useful to focus on the quantity and quality of foreign aid and development assistance of donor communities, it is not the solution. In the...

  • In the literature of corporate finance, there exists alongside others, an age long inquiry into the behaviour and determinants of corporate capital structure. The study into capital structure behaviour was pioneered by Modigliani and Miller (1958, 1963) and which is still widely research today. Despite years of research, much are still unknown to us, which determinants are reliable explanator of capital structure variations across firms and time. In 1984, Stewart C.

The capital structure puzzle at its heart asks the question of how do firms decide and manage their capita...

  • Capital structure serves as an important device for mitigation of agency conflicts and, although firms combine debt and cash dividends to address the agency conflicts, debt is preferred as a bonding device by many managers due to its lower cost as compared to equity (John, Knyazeva & Knyazeva, 2015). However, shariah-compliant firms (SCF) cannot use this device due to prohibition of interest-bearing loans in Islam. In this scenario, the dividend payout policy becomes a highly important tool of corporate governance for shariah-compliant investors. Moreover, the managers of these firms cannot maintain stable dividends by issuing bonds and, therefore, the dividend policy of such firms wo...

  • This chapter examines the economic impact of the migrants' return to Kerala, India during the Gulf oil crisis 2014-2016. Many migrants returned to their homeland during the crisis because they could not find work in the Middle East. The Kerala economy confronted this as one of the biggest threats which directly affected the economy. Almost USD 900 million had been brought to the homeland as remittance from Non-Residential Keralites (NRKs) working in Gulf countries. But the return of a large number of NRKs decreased the remittances to 10-15%. This chapter proposes Social Impact Sukuk to support the migrants who are back to their homelands from GCC countries. Data and information are co...

  • Investment is an activity that involves the commitment of resources for a certain holding period in anticipation of creating more resource (wealth). This chapter focuses on the risk-adjusted performance of two-specific classes of assets, namely, the socially responsible investment (SRI) class and the shariah-compliant classes of assets. The aim is to ascertain whether investors have to bear an extra cost for choosing these classes of assets in their portfolio. In managing the Islamic finance space, religiosity and/or ethical practices prompt investors to discard so-called 'sin-stocks' and limit their investment horizons to permissible faith-based investment alternatives ...

  • The capital structure choices of a firm not only determine the current value of the firm, but also largely determine its long-term survival. Modigliani and Miller's seminal 1958 paper explicates conventional firms' capital structure choices. However, we are yet to develop a solid theoretical framework about the financing decisions of Islamic firms. This is a review chapter on current developments in the field of Islamic capital structure. The chapter starts with a short discussion about the various sources of capital and their advantages and disadvantages, followed by a detailed description of traditional capital structure theories and their real-world empirical evidence. Finally, it ...

  • Malaysia experienced rapid economic growth at an average annual Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth of 8.5% during the 1990s due to its financial liberalization policy. This rapid growth came to a halt after the impact of the Asian financial crisis occurred on 1997-1998 causing the economy into recession. This prompted the Malaysian government to urgently develop a sophisticated capital market backed by an efficient regulatory framework to instil investors' confidence in order to attract capital inflow from the local and foreign investors to restart the economy.

  • Accounting for revenue recognition has been a subject of interest for regulators and other market participants. The interest stems from the fact that revenue forms the greatest single item in the financial statements (FASB, 2002 , p. 1). Indeed, aggressive revenue recognition has always been associated with corporate financial scandals like Enron, Worldcom and Parmalat. It has been used to mask firms' real performance with the aim of preventing shareholders and stakeholders from scrutinizing their financial performance and other wrongdoings. The Securities and Exchange Commission in the US documented that mistake in revenue recognition as the lead issue in "financial reporting errors"...
