Title: An empirical analysis of the effect of financial distress on trade credit
Author: Preve, Lorenzo
Abstract: This paper studies the use of supplier's trade credit by firms in financial distress. Trade credit represents a large portion of firms’ short-term financing and plays an important role in financial distress. We find that firms in financial distress use a significantly larger amount of trade credit to substitute for alternative sources of financing. Firms that are smaller, with less market power, and with more unique products tend to use more trade credit financing when in distress. We also find that firms that significantly increase their trade payables when in financial distress, experience an additional drop of at least 11% in sales and profitability growth over the previously documented 21% average drop for financially troubled firms.
