|Abstract:||To identify issuer motives, we study the determinants of announcement effects of convertible debt issues in the Canadian market. Classified into equity- and debt-like, wealth effects are significantly more negative for equity-like convertible bond issuers. Equity-like convertibles are significantly negatively affected by agency costs of equity. However, agency costs of debt have no significant effect on debt-like convertibles. Consistent with Stein (1992), this suggests convertibles in particular represent a substitute for equity. Moreover, convertible debt offers announced by income trusts experience significantly less negative wealth effects than offers by nontrusts - a finding explained by a more debt-like convertible design, very low agency costs of equity in case of income trusts, or both.|
