Chow What are a firms incentives to hire external auditing? To help control the conflict of interest among a firms managers, shareholders and bondholders.

Fama and Jensen Managerial shareholding can be used as a control mechanism to align interests of managers and shareholders. Jensen and Meckling Due to separation of ownership of a firm and control over the firm, agency costs arise.
Managers with more shares, and thus greater control, have more power and opportunity to act opportunistically An entrenchment effect is expected to dominate when there is intermediate managerial shareholding. There are two agency problems between managers and outside shareholders.
Agency problems are mitigated through contracting, but contracts are often based on accounting numbers prepared by management. Because accounting numbers must be reliable for contracts to be enforced, agency theory predicts a demand for higher-quality auditors when agency problems are more severe.
However, extant studies find no significant or robust relation between management ownership and audit firm size. In contrast to extant research, this study samples unlisted companies rather than listed companies for two reasons.
Consistent with a divergence-of-interests effect, the association between management ownership and audit firm size is found to be significantly negative within low and high regions of management ownership. The association is flatter and slightly positive within intermediate regions of management ownership, suggesting the existence of an opposite entrenchment effect.
The negative association and the nonlinearity is consistent with the finance literature and with the predictions of agency theory. What are agency costs? Efficiency losses that arise when managers do not bear the full consequences of their decisions.
