The industrialized world has witnessed an enormous reduction in the last decade. However this reduction in leverage may not be reflected in the pace of how corporate fixed assets are being invested. This could be due to the continued slow recovery in the economy or the uncertain investment climate.
Companies often need to undergo restructuring in order to revitalize their business’s performance. This involves adjusting how they utilize their existing assets and operations, or altering the way they structure their operations to reduce debt, consolidate debt, or improve their overall business functions. It could also mean moving certain assets to other entities as part of an asset sale or transfer, a capital restructuring technique which can have a significant impact on the financial stability of a business.
This paper uses cross-country panel data from 33 advanced economies in order to study the effects of corporate restructuring on output gains and capital productivity. Employing an instrumental variable method, we find that systemic periods of debt reduction (framed as a capital investment and restructuring corporate restructuring dummy) cause a decline in total firm-level debt as well as a positive effect on output growth via investment and capital productivity. However, this effect is mitigated by the negative effects of restructuring on the labor market and financial markets.
