We identify a novel way of evergreening loans where a low-quality bank lends to a related party of a borrower in trouble and facilitates the movement of funds to the intended beneficiary. An analysis of transactions between troubled firms and their related parties, incremental investments, and loan performance indicates that at least a part of the transactions we study indeed represent evergreening. Interestingly, unlike other known forms of evergreening, neither a comprehensive audit by the regulator nor financial markets are able to unearth the above indirect evergreening. It has significant real consequences at the firm and industry levels.
