First, China's listed companies equity financing preference Negative Effect of
After more than ten years of development and growth, China's securities market has become an important place for Chinese enterprises to raise funds. Year 2007 a total of more than 190 listed companies refinancing, which additional financing 302.591 billion yuan, the placement financing 23.254 billion yuan, hit a record high in Shanghai and Shenzhen stock market. Equity financing to some extent alleviate the problem of the lack of funds, reduce the company's asset-liability ratio, method of operation for the enterprise. However, many listed companies in the asset-liability ratio is quite low, still do not give up equity financing opportunities and even actively seek to enable the financing of listed companies in China order practice deviates from the traditional finance theory, the negative effect of equity financing preference increasingly apparent.
Financing structure change and sustainable profitability growth imbalance
Sustainable growth in corporate earnings is the basic guarantee for the implementation of equity financing. In the case of poor inside and outside the enterprise environment, excessive equity financing will inevitably lead to the decline in capital efficiency, impact on the profitability of the business, does not meet the requirements of the listed companies to maximize shareholder value. According to the market value of the listed companies Management Research Center statistics, 93 listed companies from 2000 allotment of view, the weighted return on net assets in the Fund was 15.31% in the year, fell to 9.42% in 2006. This shows that listed companies through a rights issue capital investment projects and not bring the expected high rate of return, but reduces the overall yield level of its assets, then an adverse impact on its sustained profitability.
Blind equity financing increases the tendency of blind investment and funding strand breaks possibility
Listed companies operating decision maker in the financing decisions with little regard to agency costs, resulting in a strong preference for equity financing. This preference manifests itself not only in the operators in the financing first choose equity financing, is also reflected in even in the absence of financing needs, but in line with the equity financing conditions, most choose equity financing. Many listed companies do not carefully study the feasibility of the project, just to "misappropriating" patchwork projects, resulting in a tendency to blind investment, accelerate the possibility of funding strand breaks.

Second, equity financing preference of listed companies in China Cause Analysis
Our special financing environment lead to equity financing preference
From the macro environment analysis, on the one hand the high growth of investment is the main driving force for promoting China's economic growth, which many listed companies have a thirst of funds; On the other hand, the development of China's capital market imperfections make bond financing channels narrow and difficult to finance. From the micro-environment, the pursuit of profit maximization, in order to reduce the payment of the direct costs of financing, resulting in some listed companies is the wrong emphasis on equity financing.
(2) the low cost of equity financing
The cost of outside equity financing of dividends and transaction costs. The dividend policy of listed companies in China, the reality is that a considerable number of the company for many years do not pay dividends or symbolic dividends, stock dividends low dividend payout, the dividend payout does not constitute much of a cost. The corporate bonds or bank borrowings, the lowest unit costs are greater than the cost of equity financing. The relatively low cost of equity financing is an important motivation for equity financing preference.
Equity financing "soft constraints" on the strong side
In the case of our existing capital markets, China's relevant departments defects and unreasonable for the dividend policies and regulations, with respect to debt financing, equity financing constraint is a soft constraint, the cost of equity financing is a soft costs. The different constraints intensity form different preferences, preferences for equity financing is driven by the low cost of financing equity alternative claims.

(2) the development of corporate bonds circulation market, and promote the optimization of the debt structure
The bond market in China compared with Western countries weak, mainly in contempt of the issuance of corporate bonds, corporate bond issuance constraints more, the current single species of corporate bonds. Departments should standardize the bond issue related systems, should increase the variety of bonds, and should gradually push forward the development of varieties of bond derivatives market to adapt to the needs of different enterprises of different financing options.
Establish a correct concept of financing, improve the structure of corporate finance
The company's management to establish a correct and reasonable financing concept to construct a reasonable financing structure, according to the needs of enterprise development, and strengthen internal financing in order to reduce the risk of financing to enhance the business autonomy. Should regulate the system of allocation of profits and retained profits of listed companies, listed companies to actively carry out the expansion of internal capital, and enhance their own strength.
4. Strengthen and improve the internal governance mechanisms
