|Abstract:||We analyze the effect of daily stock and bond abnormal returns around spin-off announcements. Over a three-day event window, we find statistically significant abnormal returns of 3.07% for stocks and 0.11% for straight bonds. Both stock and bond abnormal returns are higher for firms with lower interest and dividend payouts. Stock abnormal returns are also higher for firms with higher pre-spin-off leverage. Overall, we find that the firm value increase compensates for the wealth transfer effect and that bondholders’ wealth is not reduced as a result of spin-off.|
