 【内容摘要】

We find that the level of IPO underpricing is lower in countries whose folklore narratives reflect higher societal aversion towards risk or lower tolerance towards antisocial behavior. IPO firms in countries characterized by lower level of risk taking and higher level of trust are more likely to employ high-quality underwriters and auditors and encourage venture capitalists’ involvement. Folklore narratives related to risk aversion (low tolerance toward antisocial behavior) exert a weaker influence on IPO underpricing among firms subject to lower information risk (lower principal-agent conflicts) and in countries with more transparent information environment (higher level of investor protection). Folklore variables are also related to better long-term IPO performance, higher IPO proceeds, disclosure about the firm, and subscription level, and lower IPO listing costs. Overall, our paper provides the first empirical evidence on the importance of narratives in folklore in explaining corporate outcomes.
