Abstract The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 is controversial in the business world because of its costly and stringent provisions. U.S. firms of all sizes and various industries have difficulty complying with the law yet certain industries and small to mid-sized firms are hardest hit. This study hypothesizes that, due to the proportionately higher economic costs imposed, small to mid-sized firms as well as firms in the most vulnerable of industries are privatizing due to the costs of SOX and will continue to do so without reform of the act.
