What is the research programme about? This research programme improves our understanding of the implications of corporate disclosures. Corporations communicate a rich variety of information, through disclosures like annual reports, earnings forecasts, and press releases. The research programme is original in that it concentrates on how a corporation’s disclosures affect rival firms in the industry, specifically their investments (e.g., in R&D, capital expenditures).
What will the research programme achieve? Results from this research programme contribute to current research on corporate disclosures, which focusses on the implications of corporate disclosures for investors. In contrast, this research programme develops our understanding of how corporate disclosures affect rival firms and their investments.
