Seminar title
Capital Structures in Europe

We investigate capital structures and debt maturities of firms in Europe, a bank based financial system. We compare firms in EU-15 with firms in accession countries. In EU-15, there is a move towards equity financing. In accession countries, there is a move towards debt financing and debt maturities increase as they enter the EU. FDI is an important source of equity financing. Firms that fail to benefit from FDI fail to survive. High economic growth rates are financed by short-term debt, while FDI replaces long-term debt. This confirms the current plight of firms in Europe due to the credit crunch.
