    讲座摘要

    What’s in a Name? Eponymous Private Firms and Financial Reporting Quality

    We examine the association between eponymy (i.e., naming a firm after the founder’s name) andfinancial reporting quality (FRQ). Using a unique dataset of 2,271 Italian private firms, we document that eponymy is positively associated with total accrual quality, working capital accrual quality, revenue accrual quality, and a composite index of the three measures. This relation is stronger for eponymous firms that have rarer names, consistent with the argument that name rarity increases the signaling role and reputational cost of eponymy. Corroborating these findings, we also find that the eponymy-FRQ relation is stronger for firms that operate only locally, and weaker for firms that operate in manufacturing-oriented businesses. Finally, we find that eponymous firms are associated with lower cost of debt: both directly and indirectly through their higher financial reporting quality. Collectively these findings suggest that reputational concerns act as a disciplining mechanism for financial reporting quality.


    Are Outside Directors with SEC Investigation Experience Better Monitors?

    We examine whether outside directors (directors with experience of SEC investigation, or DEIs) monitor financial reporting quality more effectively than other outside directors after the firms they serve are investigated by the SEC for accounting frauds. Using SEC investigations at one firm as a quasi-exogenous shock to other (non-investigated) firms the same DEI concurrently or subsequently serves, we first document that DEIs have higher attendance rate at board meetings relative to other outside directors, consistent with DEIs exerting greater monitoring effort. More importantly, we find that firms with DEIs on board have significantly lower likelihood of misreporting financial statements than firms without DEIs, especially when the investigation experience of these DEIs is recent. Our study contributes to the literature by documenting the positive spillover effect of SEC investigations through director reputation and director learning.
