Debt Maturity, Ownership Concentration, and Firm Efficiency

Samuele Murtinu

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivistapeer review


I study the relationship between debt maturity and agency conflicts between controlling and minority shareholders in unlisted firms. Exploiting cross-province variance in the development of local credit markets, I find that the monitoring effect of short-term bank debt is more effective in firms with less concentrated ownership structures.
