Call it good, bad or no news? The valuation effect of debt issues
Accounting and Finance, 2017, vol. 57, issue 4, 1203-1229
Studies investigating market reactions to changes in capital structure aim to find the impact of private information conveyed. However, these studies ignore that financial decisions are not made randomly but are conditional on managersâ€™ private information. Using a sample of U.S. leverageâ€ increasing public companies with public longâ€ term debt offerings, we find that debt offerings convey no new information to the markets after considering the conditionality of decisions. We also show that results can be biased if the deterministic role played by private information ex ante is omitted, which may explain the conflicting valuation evidence found in the literature.
