Abstract

In tandem with the importance of chairperson statements as a quick non-technical reference for investment decision making among investors, this study examines the move structuring and each move’s metadiscourse strategies used in Malaysian chairperson statements within the context of value-investing. Drawing on 53 chairperson statements of eleven Malaysian public listed companies shortlisted from 805 companies, this study identifies and describes the genre’s move structuring and interpersonal metadiscourse strategies from textual perspective. It was found that the chairperson statements’ schematic structuring is different from the previous structuring models with four new moves. Marked differences were found in the distribution of interactive and interactional markers across the moves. The findings have thereotical significance.
