The R2s in the regression of timeliness R2 over time are respectively 0.076 (0.441) for small companies and 0.003 (0.879) for large companies. Contrary to our expectations, the average of timeliness R2 for small firms (0.129) is higher than that for large firms (0.069), although the difference is not statistically significant (t ¼ 1.376, sig ¼ 0.202).
