In July 2012, Shenzhen Stock Exchange (SZSE) mandated that all listed firms electronically publish a standard summary report for each private in-house meeting through its web portal. In this study we develop a model to analyse the relation between disclosure of in-house meeting and stock crash risk. Our model predicts a negative association between the number of in-house meeting and stock price crash risk. It also predicts that the textual characteristics of in-house meeting reports (readability and sentiment) would have a significant impact on crash risk. Using data collected from Chinese listed firms between 2012 and 2017, we find results consistent with the model’s predictions.
