    Do insiders’ shares pledges affect the cost of issuing new bonds?

    Evidence from an emerging market

    Abstract: We study the impact of a firm’s insider shares pledge on the yield spread of a bond issued by his firm in China. We hypothesize that when an insider pledges his shares, the operation risk of the firm increases due to a contingent change of ownership and control. Accordingly, bond investors expect a high bond yield issued by a firm with shares pledged by an insider. Consistent with our hypothesis, our findings indicate that the shares pledge increases its firm’s bond yield spread, suggesting that bond investors are able to recognize the contingent operation risk associated with the pledge. The findings are robust to a battery of robustness checks. Our additional analyses show that when a firm is in a high marketization region, it is prone to crash risk, and has a high risk of losing managerial talents, the impact of the insiders’ shares pledge on the yield spread is more pronounced. Our results show that insiders’ shares pledge destroys firm value by raising the yield of bonds issued by the insiders’ firms. In addition to firm and issue characteristics, the bond yield depends on insiders’ personal activities, such as their shares pledging. The Chinese corporate bond market becomes more mature as bond investors, on average, are able to recognize the contingent operation risk associated with shares pledge.
