This paper explores the impact of international diversification on the decision to hold conference calls. In addition, we examine the mitigating roles of legal environment and agency problems in holding conference calls. Using a sample drawn from Taiwan, we find that greater corporate internationalization (INT) is associated with a higher likelihood of holding conference calls. We also find that firms are more likely to conduct conference calls when companies invest in a higher proportion of common law countries. We also find that the positive association between the likelihood of holding conference calls and corporate INT is less pronounced when the control divergence of controlling owners increases.
