It has also been argued in this study that accounting conservatism may affect the cost of debt for non-profit firms.
Furthermore, the results of statistical tests show that there is a direct and significant relation between the cost of debt and unconditional conservatism.
Therefore, higher unconditional conservatism can be attributed to some of the in-house events in the company that lead to a reduced profit which in turn results in negative response of capital financers and increased cost of debt for the companies with high unconditional conservatism.
The results of the present study generally indicate that accounting conservatism may not be useful for reducing the cost of debt for companies.
Hypothesis 4: Firms with higher growth options are more likely to have a greater relative reduction in the cost of debt after the passage of SOX than firms with lower growth options.
The correlation between SPREAD and SOX indicates that the cost of debt for debt contract has increased during the post-SOX period.
2002), I find evidence that debt covenants and the cost of debt have a negative relationship.
Consistent with Panel B of Table 2 and Table 3, the univariate analysis between SPREAD and SOX indicates that the cost of debt has increased during the post-SOX period.
Consistent with my second hypothesis, shareholders appear to be substituting a reduced cost of debt for increased monitoring in the post-SOX period.
If the increased post-SOX monitoring influenced the cost of debt, this regression should show what kind of firms are more (or less) affected by increased monitoring.
