When investors can talk to firms, is it a meaningful conversation? Evidence from investor postings on interactive platforms

Understanding information dissemination and acquisition in capital markets has been a primary objective in accounting and finance research for decades. Given that obtaining publicly available information in capital markets is not an effortless exercise, a body of studies examine how market participants collect information through various channels. The internet is now the most important platform for market participants to collect information. However, information from the internet may be uninformative or even misleading because the internet…

Do women mind the non-GAAP? Board gender diversity and non-GAAP disclosure quality

Managers often supplement their GAAP financial reporting with additional voluntary disclosures to provide investors with more tailored and sometimes nuanced insights into their firm’s performance. These disclosures of alternative earnings figures are commonly known as ‘non-GAAP’ earnings. Given that the quality of these disclosures varies, we ask what company governance characteristic(s) might guide an investor whether to trust non-GAAP earnings or not? We focus on board gender diversity. We draw insights from prior research to…

How Do Non-Performing Loans Evolve along the Economic Cycle? The Role of Macroeconomic Conditions and Legal Efficiency

  In many countries, the recent crises like the COVID-19 pandemic or the war in the Ukraine also led to an increase in the level of insolvency risk. In such a situation, regulators and policymakers are most concerned about the build-up of non-performing loans (NPLs) and the resilience of bank balance sheets – many historical examples show that excessive levels of NPLs can seriously endanger financial stability (e.g., in Japan, Italy, Mexico, or Asia).

Auditors’ Incentives and Audit Quality: Non-audit Services versus Contingent Audit Fees

This blog has been written by Lucas Mahieux about his recently accepted paper “Auditors’ Incentives and Audit Quality: Non-audit Services versus Contingent Audit Fees”.   What are the incentive effects of the provision of non-audit services (NAS) on auditors?

Assembling Homo Qualitus: Accounting for Quality in the UK National Health Service

Healthcare quality and managerial accounting are typically understood to be separate and competing tasks, logics, and/or areas of expertise.

We show further how this blending of accounting and quality challenges traditional distinctions of healthcare workers in terms of professional jurisdiction, task and office. By outlining the…

Do accounting firms make promises to potential clients that are inconsistent with public interest concerns about audit firm independence?

EAR paper blog / abstract   Do accounting firms make promises to potential clients that are inconsistent with public interest concerns about audit firm independence? Do audit firms “sell” audits to clients primarily based on public interest concerns (e.g., independence), or, on promises to serve the clients’ business need promises?

The past two decades have witnessed an important rise in cash holdings by multinational corporations (MNC), with a significant proportion of such cash held by foreign subsidiaries and deemed to be in excess of what is needed by the firms to pursue their operations.
