Research in progress

Title:Forgiveness or Betrayal? An Investigation Into Investorsí Reactions of CSR Firms Following an Announcement of an Accounting Misstatement

Description:We investigate investor reactions to misstatements for firms that voluntarily provide corporate social responsibility reports (CSR). We rely upon Stereotype Content Theory and Betrayal Aversion Theory to predict that investor reactions to misstatements will differ based on the level of CSR performance (Average, High) and misstatement type (Unintentional, Intentional). We expect that high CSR firms are more likely to be forgiven for unintentional misstatements but are more likely to generate feelings of betrayal in investors for intentional misstatements. These feelings of betrayal are expected to decrease the likelihood of forgiveness for intentional misstatements. We conduct an experiment with non-professional investors recruited through Amazon's Mturk to test our hypotheses. Participants are asked to evaluate their desired investment relationship with a CSR reporting firm (either average or high) that reports a misstatement (either intentional or unintentional).
