Skill Mismatching: Evidence from the Amendment on Regulation S-K in 2009

Project Details


We study whether U.S. firms with a lower skill mismatching on the board committees after the amendment on regulation S-K in 2009 generate higher firm value and better operating performance. We expect that the firms with a lower skill mismatching after the amendment on regulation S-K in 2009 have higher board meeting attendance, experience better announcement returns of M&As, enjoy lower cost of debt, conduct more value-enhancing research activities, and design an efficient compensation package.
