Abstract

This paper aims to identify the level of business model voluntary disclosure adopted by three manufacturing companies within Initial Public Offering (IPO) prospectus in order to investigate whether any differences in the level of disclosure may depend on differences among their business models (due, primarily, to the type of innovation used). A series of interviews conducted with the top management allowed to deeply understand the business model of each company. Furthermore, two different content analysis (qualitative and quali-quantitative) has been developed to point out the strategic themes contained in the IPO prospectus and their relevance. Focusing the analysis on business model concepts makes it possible to recognize a set of themes common to the companies and others that are exclusives to each company. The exclusives features have been used to determine the business model disclosure level adopted by each selected company in its IPO prospectus. Finally, the study shows how companies with a business model based on design-driven and technology-push innovation have a lower propensity to disclose their distinctive resources.
