Using event study method, this paper investigates how stock market reacts to the announcement of voluntary adoption of IFRS and whether there exists cross-sectional heterogeneity in the market’s reaction in Japanese firms. First, I find that on average the reaction of the stock market to the announcement of voluntary adoption of IFRS is statistically insignificant for the Japanese firms. Second, I find heterogeneous stock market reaction according to firm characteristics. Specifically, the stock market reacts negatively for the firms that convert from US GAAP to IFRS, negatively when firms have large goodwill, and positively when firm size is large.
