Abstract

(VF)Cet article montre que la banque chef de file structure le syndicat et le prêt de manière à limiter les incidences négatives des problèmes informationnels pour les banques, permettant aux firmes les plus opaques de ne pas subir un spread trop élevé. Nous estimons les déterminants du spread des prêts syndiqués sur le marché français, de 2004 à 2006. Nous vérifions que les asymétries d’information déterminent la structure du syndicat et les caractéristiques du prêt, alors que le spread est surtout influencé par le risque de défaut de l’emprunteur, par la structure du syndicat et par les caractéristiques du prêt.(VA)This article shows that, in a loan syndicate, the leading bank determines the syndicate’s structure and the contract design to protect participant banks from the risks of asymmetric information. Consequently, firms are not charged a higher spread for lack of transparency. We provide empirical evidence on spreads of syndicated loans in the French market, from 2004 to 2006. Syndicate structure and loan characteristics are shown to depend on the presence of asymmetric information, whereas the spread is essentially explained by default risk, syndicate structure and loan characteristics.
