This paper investigates the mechanism that drives the price dynamics for privately-placed stocks with price inversion, their unlock-date price lower than the issuing price. Using a sample of Chinese companies that placed equity privately with lock-in periods ending between 2007 and 2015, we find that stocks with price inversion generate higher short-term returns after the lock-in period than other stocks, and the greater the degree of price inversion, the better the short-term returns post the lock-in period. This anomaly cannot be explained by the price reversal effect, investors’ under-reaction to the companies’ prospects, or the improved governance after private equity placements. Rather, it reflects the interests transferred by issuing firms to participating investors, given the unique regulations on private equity placements in China. Interests transfer is particularly pronounced if local investors are involved in a private placement. Additionally, the better the corporate governance, the lower the degree of interests transfer.
