The long-term underperformance of IPOs is a global phenomenon. This paper investigates the long-run performance of 67 Chinese overseas listing in the U.S. stock exchange during the period of 1993-2008. Consistent with previous researches on the IPOs long-run performance, such as Ritter (1991), Levis (1993) and Khurshed et al. (1999), significant underperformance of Chinese overseas listing are found in a three-year holding period. The average three years buy-and-hold market-adjusted return is negative 28.12% for the 67 Chinese firms. Moreover, the study attempts to relate long-term underperformance to a full set of variables originated from different explanatory theories as well as unique characteristics of Chinese overseas listing. Based on cross-sectional and regression analysis, only the age and ownership structure of firms are proved to have statistical significance with Chinese overseas listing underperformance in the long-run. The findings indicate that international investors should invest the state-owned enterprises and pay more attention to the history of Chinese overseas listing.
