Les performances opérationnelles à long terme des entreprises françaises émettrices d’actions
(VF)Cette étude se propose d’analyser les performances opérationnelles d’un échantillon de 108 augmentations de capital réalisées en France. Les résultats obtenus montrent que les performances opérationnelles connaissent une hausse avant l’émission d’actions suivie d’une baisse significative comme sur les marchés américain, anglais et japonais. L’analyse des déterminants de la performance à long terme des entreprises émettrices ne corrobore pas l’hypothèse des free cash flows. En revanche, la dégradation de la performance semble être expliquée par l’hypothèse du timing.(VA)We examine the long-run operating performance of 108 French companies issuing stock. Our results suggest that issuing firms experience substantial improvements in operating performance prior to the offering, while the tendency is reversed after the offering has taken place. This confirms the results obtained in US, UK and Japanese studies. We find no relation between the pre-issue level of free cash flow and the subsequent decline in profitability. Hence, the results from the French SEO market offer evidence consistent with the ‘window of opportunity’ hypothesis for explaining the downward drift following a seasoned offering.
