Abstract

Reduziert eine IFRS-Umstellung die Informationsdefizite der Fremdkapitalgeber und somit auch die Risikoprämie von Unternehmensanleihen? Entgegen bisherigen empirischen Untersuchungen betrachten wir den Zusammenhang zwischen Offenlegung und Kapitalkosten für Fremdfinanzierung. Folglich analysieren wir den Einfluss einer IFRS-Umstellung auf die Risikoprämie von Anleihen deutscher, österreichischer und schweizer Unternehmen im Zeitraum von 1997 bis 2005. Unsere Ergebnisse zeigen, dass sich die Veränderung der Risikoprämie nach einer Umstellung auf IFRS um ca. 39% verringert. Allerdings tritt dieser Effekt mit einer zeitlichen Verzögerung auf, da die Verringerung im zweiten Jahr nach der Umstellung stärker ist als im ersten Jahr.
