Equity Financing and the Pecking Order Hypothesis in the Emerging Market: Evidence from Taiwan's Relocated Firms in China (TRFC)


  • Chen-Jui Huang


This article examines two datasets of Taiwan's relocated firms in China (TRFC) and discusses the pros and cons of equity financing alternatives as well as cross-sectional heterogeneity and inter-temporal dynamics in the pecking order of capital structure. On-site listing, regardless of the board chosen, appears a sustainable approach for TRFC to expand in the emerging market of the Mainland. The pecking order hypothesis is mostly supported by evidence from moderately leveraged TRFC as variables are kept unscaled by net book assets, and the role of asymmetric information is confirmed from findings using sub-samples specified by firm size.
