This study aims to analyze the effect of loan information (ie, number of lenders, loan amount, and loan maturity) and borrower characteristics (ie, public, firm size, leverage, and profitability), as well as control variables such as country and year on syndicated loan, spread in public companies and private companies in Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam during the 2008–2018 period by calculating the All In Spread Drawn (AISD) of the syndicated loans over LIBOR. This study applied a quantitative approach through the ordinary least squares method on a sample of 389 observations. A total of 118 observations came from public companies, and 271 observations came from private companies. This study shows that syndicated loans given to private companies are more expensive than public companies. However, this can be minimized by increasing the loan exposure for private firms through a larger number of lenders. It can also be seen that public companies with larger assets, higher returns on equity, and borrowing with shorter terms will be subject to lower interest rates. The spreads for syndicated loans are the most expensive in Indonesia, followed by Vietnam and Thailand.
