Market reaction to rights offering announcements in the Turkish stock market

Tepe, Mete
This study examines the market reaction to rights offering announcements in Turkey. Even though the topic is extensively studied in the finance literature, there is still research going on for emerging markets. The first part of this study measures market reaction to rights offering announcements for six different information arrival dates. The results are significantly negative except for the case of the announcement of the rights offering period. Additionally, the sample is divided into two sub-periods as before and after the 2001 crisis. The results show that there is a significant difference in market reaction and this difference is attributed to the change in economic policy after the 2001 crisis. The second part of the study examines the determinants of this market reaction and the findings suggest that bonus issues are positively related and there is also evidence that firms time their equity issues. The third part analyzes the long term performance of equity issuing firms in two subgroups as financial and non-financial firms. The results provide evidence of a negative performance and this finding is consistent with the results of previous studies.
