The Long-run Performance of Chinese Private Firm IPOs

Jing Chi, Jing Liao, Lin Qian


This paper examines the three-year long run performance of Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) in the Chinese stock markets from 2002 to 2012. We find that private firm IPO long-term returns are significantly higher than those of non-private firms, measured by both cumulative abnormal returns (CARs) and buy-and-hold abnormal returns (BHARs). Furthermore, the long-term performance of IPOs in the Chinese stock markets seems to have a significant upward tendency after the Non-tradable share (NTS) reform launched in 2005. However, private firm IPO long-run outperformance has experienced a diminishing increase after the NTS reform. This result indicates that state-owned enterprises turn to be more market-oriented after the NTS reform.
