Capstaff, J. and Fletcher, Jonathan (2011) Long term performance and choice of SEO method by UK firms. Journal of Business Finance and Accounting, 38 (9-10). pp. 1262-1289. ISSN 0306-686XFull text not available in this repository. (Request a copy from the Strathclyde author)
The long term performance of firms making seasoned equity offerings (SEOs) in the UK, in an era of discretion over the choice of issue method, is shown to differ according to the chosen method across a number of different models of expected returns. The combination of prior and post-SEO performance suggests that rights offering firms are less likely to time offers to exploit overvaluation than firms using placings. When judged on a long term basis rights offering firms are not of lesser quality than firms that choose other offering methods.
