Abstract

Purpose - This study seeks to explore developments in corporate creditworthiness before and after ownership events. Design/methodology/approach - The paper uses the Blockholders database of Dlugosz, Fahlenbrach, Gompers, and Metrick, and three credit quantities, and deploys a standard event study methodology to examine the relation to corporate creditworthiness. Findings - The paper discovers that ownership-construction is generally associated with prior- and post-improvement in creditworthiness, while a block-destruction is typically surrounded by deterioration in corporate creditworthiness. The paper also finds proper evidence for a relation between the construction or destruction of managerial block and future developments in corporate creditworthiness. The paper further realizes that outside shareholders exhibit higher impact than inside block-holders on later variations in credit risk. Research limitations/implications - The paper is unable to conduct further robustness checks with structural credit methodologies due to the reduced number of valid observations. Originality/value - Market participants can utilize the conclusions to better predict future trends in corporate creditworthiness.
