The Sequencing of stock market liberalization events and corporate financing decisions.
Department of Economics Finance & Accounting.
We examine if the sequence of stock market liberalization events matters for corporate financing choices. We contrast firms who attain ‘investable’ status through domestic reforms with those who do so by issuing American Depository Receipt programs. We find that the first liberalization event prompts similar corporate responses regardless of the path followed. However, we find differential effects between firms who issue ADRs after realizing financial liberalization and those who use ADR initiations to achieve this status. Here, the sequence matters and the capital structure choices of the two groups are very different.
