Abstract of the paper

This study examines the association between information content earnings and culture values. The market reaction around earnings announcement are expected to vary according to the variation of home country culture value of cross-listed firms. This study finds some evidence to support that higher (lower) market reaction around the release of earning is related to Hofstede Culture Dimensions; and 2) Quantified Accounting Value of Gray (1988). This relationship exist based on the argument that firm’s manager efficient or opportunistic in financial reporting is influenced by culture value. These results also support the argument that culture value affect to the development of accounting system (Gray, 1988) and further affect to quality of financial reporting. Overall, the results suggest that the informal institutional factors of cultural differences of cross-listed firms are priced by the United States (U.S.) market.
