HOW DOES REPORTING FREQUENCY INFLUENCES THE PERFORMANCE OF A FIRM? A THEORETICAL REVIEW AND EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE.

DINIS SANTOS

Abstract:

The aim of the present report is to review the available literature on how does the mandatory reporting frequency affects the binomial relationship between the performance and the short-term concerns of the firms as well as to show empirical evidence on the same subject. For this, we used a sample of 2722 firms from a heterogeneous international environment. After running the analysis, we find he a higher reporting frequency negatively impacts the results of firms. There seems to be a short-termism concern leading to a performance decrease. Also, there are few approaches to try to deal with this issue within the literature.
