Research on rights offerings continues in other jurisdictions where rights offerings continue to be prevalent. For example, Armitage (2002) and Slovin, Sushka, and Lai (2000) study the UK; Lukose and Rao (2003), India; Wu and Wang (2002), Hong Kong; Bigelli (1998), Italy; Brrhren, Eckbo, and Michalsen (1997), Norway; Tsangarakis (1996), Greece, and Kang and Stulz (1996), Japan. However, institutional differences in these other jurisdictions mean that the results may not be applicable to the US. Burch, Christie, and Nanda (2004) examine rights usage in the US in the 1930s and 1940s.
