We identify a novel way of evergreening loans where a low-quality bank lends to a related party of an insolvent borrower, and the loan recipient transfers the funds to the insolvent borrower using internal capital markets. Internal capital market transactions, incremental investments, interest rates charged, and loan delinquency rates collectively indicate evergreening. These loans are unlikely to represent arm's length transactions or rescue of troubled related firms by stronger firms to prevent
group-wide spillover effects. Indirect evergreening is less likely to be detected by regulatory audits. It has significant real consequences at the �firm and industry levels.
