China's city commercial banks were reorganized by the urban credit cooperatives in the same city in the 1990s. Although they are allowed to open branches outside the registered city, the location and the number of their branches have been strictly restricted. It is fatal to them to increase the competitiveness of their branches. Based on the diversity theory and its mechanism, in this study I examined the impact of source diversity of the senior management in the branches of the city commercial bank on the branches’ productivity and their asset yield. Invoking the resource-based theory and the social capital framework, …

本文选取当前在学界和业界关注度较高的“新三板”企业作为研究对象,从融资效率和融资偏好角度实证了新三板企业当前的运行状况,补充了资本结构和融资效率的研究文献。利用二元选择回归以及分位数回归方法,探究了内部融资、债务融资以及权益融资偏好的影响因素。本文发现:1)对于内部融资,企业资产负债率越低、经营能力越强、盈利能力越好、抵押品越少以及公司成长性高的企业更倾向于使用内部融资,资产负债率对内部融资的负面影响边际增大;2)对于债务融资,资产负债率越低、盈利能力越好、经营能力越强、抵押品越多、公司成长性高的企业更倾向于使用债务融资;3)对于权益融资,盈利能力较差、经营能力较弱的企业更倾向于使用权益融资,而资本结构以及公司成长性对权益融资没有影响。分位数回归也发现,盈利能力、现金状况、总资产周转率、资产流动性、非债务税盾、民营企业以及公司成长性等变量对权益融资的影响较为稳定,提示公司的特征变量对权益融资并没有明显的主导作用。在融资效率上,本文也发现:1)于2012年挂牌新三板的企业整体融资效率不高,DEA融资效率为有效的企业占比仅为10%左右;但融资效率在逐年持续改善,表现出一个较好的发展势头。并且,对于做市转让的企业来说,2014年由协议转让改为做市转让以后,融资相对有效的企业数量增长明显快于协议转让企业,表明采用做市转让的企业融资效率优于采用协议转让的企业。2)市场整体融资规模并未达到挂牌企业的需求,导致一半以上企业尚未达到最优的生产经营状态,仍需要资金来增加生产资料的投入,以扩大生产规模获取规模收益。对于做市转让的企业来说,在2014年由协议转让改为做市转让以后,规模报酬递增的企业数量占比下降更快,表明做市转让制度要比协议转让制度从融资效率角度更能满足新三板企业的融资需求。 Dissertation/Thesis
