Financial Markets and Financial Institutions
The study looks at short-term and long-term performance of the Russian and Chinese companies after divestiture. The final sample includes 244 deals completed between 01/01/2005 and 31/12/2016 on the Russian and Chinese markets. The results of event study show that average CAR is positive during all the chosen event windows. The results of regression analysis demonstrate significance of such variables as company value, deal value, intra-industry divestiture and previous experience in asset sales. The analysis of companys' long-term performance after divestiture shows that operating performance improves for Chinese companies, but not for Russian firms.
