We advance a theory asserting that CSR performance may exacerbate, not necessarily moderate, a company’s negative stock-price response to negative events. In testing this theory, we hypothesize and find that CSR performance alleviates (magnifies) the immediate negative market response to inadvertent (fraudulent) restatement announcements, and that these findings are robust to specifications that consider alternative CSR measures and a multitude of control variables shown by prior research to hav...

We provide the first partner tenure and mandatory rotation analysis for a large cross-section of U.S. publicly listed firms over an extended period. We analyze the effects on audit quality as well as on audit pricing and production. On average, we find no evidence for audit quality declines over the tenure cycle and, consistent with this result, little support for fresh-look benefits after five-year mandatory rotations. Nevertheless, partner rotations have significant economic consequences. Audi...

This study forwards a linguistic-based measure of the important but difficult-to-operationalize trait of CEO integrity. We contend low-integrity CEOs lack credibility when communicating, which creates a demand for explanations beyond that created by existing firm-specific or other CEO characteristics. We derive and validate a dictionary to capture explanations, and apply the dictionary to a sample of over 30,000 annual CEO shareholder letters. We then benchmark the supply of explanations in shar...
