    摘 要】We return to the long-standing question of “Who owns the assets in a defined benefit pension plan?” Unlike earlier studies, we condition the market’s assessment of implicit property rights on the financial health of the sponsoring firm. Valuations of firms that have become financially stronger are more responsive to funding status of its pension plans. For these firms, an extra dollar of plan assets, projected benefit obligations, accumulated benefit obligations, funding status, and off-balance sheet pension items are valued at between $0.50 and $1.00. In contrast, for firms that have become financially weaker, the corresponding valuation effects are statistically indistinguishable from zero. This result is consistent with the greater vulnerability of these firms to future financial distress and the higher likelihood that they will renege on their pension obligations.
