Abstract

(VF)Dans le présent article nous analysons la performance opérationnelle à long terme des émetteurs d’obligations convertibles (OC) en France. Nos résultats mettent en évidence une sous-performance opérationnelle significative à long terme après l’émission et ce, indépendamment des étalons, indicateurs de mesure de per-formance ou modèles que nous avons utilisés. Cette conclusion, concordante avec les résultats obtenus sur le marché américain, est une des explications potentielles de la sous-performance boursière récemment mise en relief chez les émetteurs d’OC français. Par ailleurs, l’analyse en coupe transversale de nos résultats montre que cette sous-performance doit être relativisée par certaines caractéristiques propres à l’émetteur et à l’émission.(VA)The purpose of this paper is to analyze the long-run operating performance of French convertible bond (CB) issuers. Our results reveal that firms issuing convertible bonds underperform substantially non-issuing firms after the issue. Our findings are robust with respect to the various benchmarks and operating performance measures used. This post-offering downturn in earnings confirms findings of previous studies undertaken in the US market and is consistent with the poor long-term post-issue stock price performance recently reported on the French CB market. However, a cross sectional analysis of our results suggests that this underperformance is tempered by specific issuer and issue features.
