论文摘要:Focusing on the IPO market, we examine the influence of corporate hedging on firm value. Consistent with the argument that corporate hedging reduces information asymmetry, we find that hedging IPO firms are associated with lower price revisions and underwriting fees. More importantly, corporate hedging reduces IPO underpricing, especially for informationally opaque firms. This provides strong evidence that hedging increases firm value during the issuing process. We also show that corporate hedging lowers aftermarket idiosyncratic volatility, enhances aftermarket liquidity, and improves long-term performance of IPO firms. We use both an instrumental variable approach and a regulation change on derivatives supply to address the endogeneity concerns.
