Abstract:

We find that the anti-corruption investigations in China lead to increases in debt issuances for privately- owned, non-SOE peer firms. Our findings suggest that the industry-specific competition effect dominates the contagion effect for non-SOE peers. In contrast, SOE peers experience reductions in debt issuances following anti-corruption investigations. This credit reallocation is associated with higher investment efficiency, suggesting that non-SOE rivals with high productivity benefit from SOE rivals’ potential loss of political connection. This credit shift towards non-SOE firms is more pronounced in short-term debt and bank loans, indicating a supply-side explanation that we corroborate using an exogenous shock in the banking sector.
