講題: Does Equity Financing Really Underperform in the Long-run? Evidence from Private Placements and Public Offerings in Taiwan
Many believe that increased investment in capital expenditure is what causes the long-run underperformance of initial public offerings (IPOs) and seasoned equity offerings (SEOs). We argue that such underperformance is caused by the agency costs of managerial discretion on free cash flow, rather than capital expenditure per se. The results of the empirical examination of a sample of 418 private placements and 416 public offerings by firms on the Taiwan stock markets confirm our hypothesis. We show that placements characterized by increased capital expenditure are associated with better long-run performance, whereas public offerings have significantly negative abnormal returns.
