Abstract

This research seeks to discover if there is any relationship between the delay in the publication of the annual financial statements of companies, and their level of corporate governance, assuming that the delay on its liberation would indicate a smaller transparency of the company. For that, proxy variables for corporate governance were defined, as well as for other dimensions of the company that can, potentially, explain that discrepancy. Ordinary Least Square and Tobit models were used. The results indicate, among other things, that the excess of control by controller shareholders tends to cause a larger delay in the liberation of the statements, but the presence of the company in BOVESPA's differentiated corporate governance levels, as well as the Index for Corporate Governance Quality do not have relationship with the delay.
