Keywords:cash holdings, lending money, loans, non-financial companies, cash flow
AbstractThis paper aims to identify factors influencing Polish non-financial corporate lending to other entities starting from the recognition motives and sources of cash holdings. The research analyzed panel data of 754 non-financial companies listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange with use of tobit panel and generalized least squares method. Cash holding is motivated by a transaction motive, a protection against risk by the use of derivatives, investment opportunities and lending money. Non-financial companies try to step into the shoes of financial institutions by lending using money gained from their cash flow, especially when they have long-term investments.
