Published PapersTantri, Prasanna. (Forthcoming) "Creditor Rights and Strategic Default: Evidence from India", Journal of Law and Economics Centre for Analytical FinanceRead Abstract >Close >We examine whether higher creditor rights prevent strategic default. Borrowers who cross either of two thresholds are exempt from a creditor rights law in India. Using a loan day-level dataset, we find that loan performance is better when the law applies and that outperformance increases after a further rise in creditor rights. To discern the strategic motive, we use an unprecedented invalidation of the Indian currency whereby holders of high-value currency were forced to declare their cash holdings to banks. Defaulters exempt from the law showed a greater tendency to repay their loans during the ban period.

(Forthcoming) "Government Employment Guarantee, Labor Supply, and Firms' Reaction: Evidence from the Largest Public Workfare Program in the World", Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis Centre for Analytical FinanceRead Abstract >Close >Using establishment-level employment and operating data, we examine the impact of the Indian government's employment guarantee program on labor and firm behavior. We exploit the staggered implementation of the program for identification and find that the program led to a 10% reduction in permanent workforce in firms. Firms responded to the adverse labor supply shock by resorting to increased mechanization. This significantly increased the firms' cost of production, thereby leading to a decline in net profits and productivity. These effects manifested primarily in firms paying low wages, having low labor productivity and greater output volatility, and firms located in states with pro-employer labor regulations.

(2019) "Spirituality and Corporate Philanthropy in Indian Family Firms: An Exploratory Study.", Journal of Business EthicsThomas Schmidheiny Centre for Family EnterpriseRead Abstract >Close >Family firm philanthropy (FFP) is the donation of resources to support societal betterment in ways meaningful for the controlling family. Family business literature suggests that socioemotional goals of achieving family prominence, harmony and continuity drive FFP. However, these drivers fail to explain spiritually motivated philanthropic behaviors like anonymous giving by some Hindu business families. Based on case studies and interviews with family members in 14 Hindu families in India with a combined giving exceeding 2 billion INR in 2016-17, this study suggests spirituality or the moral dimension as an additional important driver of corporate behaviors like FFP. Two fundamental spiritual beliefs of dharma (duty towards society) and karma (right to action) instill a culture of duty-bound giving in Hindus. However, the strength of each belief in controlling families varies. Juxtaposing these beliefs leads us to four types of family firm philanthropist labeled in this paper as Devout, Committed, Devoid, and Coerced. Devouts, the biggest givers, are spiritually motivated, controlled by at least 3rd generation family members with executive power and professional support. Societal development, rather than spirituality is the key motivator for committed philanthropists. While devoids strongly hold spiritual beliefs, they fail to devote adequate resources or develop professional structures to support FFP. Coerced, the smallest givers, focus on business growth, lack family champions or supporting professional structures, and face turbulent family or business domains.

(2019) "Benefits of IT-enabled Flexibilities for Foreign versus Local Firms in Emerging Economies", Journal of Management Information Systems, 36 (3), 855-892Read Abstract >Close >Emerging economies present attractive opportunities to foreign firms. However, internationalization risk faced by foreign firms can have significant implications for their performance relative to local firms. Information Technology (IT) and IT-enabled capabilities help firms overcome internationalization risk and compete globally. Marketing Capability and Relational Capability also mitigate this risk through access to information related to markets and the business environment. We examine how foreign firms and local firms compare in leveraging synergies between such IT and firm capabilities. We focus on two kinds of IT-enabled capabilities: IT-enabled Flexibility in Customer Services, and IT-enabled Flexibility in Partner Services, and develop hypotheses for their complementary effects with Marketing Capability and Relational Capability respectively, to positively influence firm performance. We then draw on the firm-specific advantages framework to argue that foreign firms face a comparative disadvantage relative to local firms in leveraging the synergy between IT-enabled Flexibility in Customer Services and Marketing Capability. In contrast, foreign firms enjoy a comparative advantage relative to local firms in leveraging the synergy between IT-enabled Flexibility in Partner Services and Relational Capability. Empirical analysis using matched-pair survey and secondary data of 182 foreign and local firms in India supports our hypotheses. Our findings highlight important differences in how foreign and local firms benefit from IT, thus contributing towards a better understanding of how context and contingencies influence IT implications in emerging economies.

(2019) "Demand Curves For Stocks Do Not Slope Downwards: Evidence Using an Exogenous Supply Shock", Journal of Banking and Finance, 104, 19-30Centre for Analytical FinanceRead Abstract >Close >We analyze the price impact of an exogenous share sale by inside blockholders, who were forced to sell a part of their shareholdings due to a regulatory change in India. The affected firms experience a negative excess return of 4.5% during the issue week. Crucially, the price impact reverses in about 55 to 75 days after the event. Our results are consistent with the view that the long term demand curves for stocks are
at: a view echoed by classical finance theories. The short term price reaction to a sale is likely to be a result of temporary price pressure.
