Abstract

What is the effect of funding costs on the conditional probability of issuing a corporate bond? We study this question in a novel dataset covering 5610 issuances by US firms over the period from 1990 to 2014. Identifi cation of this effect is complicated because of unobserved, common shocks such as the global fi nancial crisis. To account for these shocks, we extend the common correlated effects estimator to settings where outcomes are discrete. Both the asymptotic properties and the small sample behavior of this estimator are documented. We fi nd that for non- financial fi rms, yields are negatively related to bond issuance but that e ffect is larger in the pre-crisis period.
