In particular, Table OA.I extends Table I, in the paper, by reporting a long list of recent working paper investigating the financial and economic consequences of data breaches. Table OA.II documents that 10K disclosures based measures of cyber-security risk predicts data preaches using non-linear model and no fixed effects. Table OA.III confirms that our R&D results are robust to dropping observations with missing R&D, as well as to the use of the Koh and Reeb (2015) to predict the value of missing R&D values.
