abstract

  • It is important to report financial information in a timely fashion. The longer a company waits to release its annual report and accompanying financial statements, the more stale the information is and the less useful it is. A number of studies have been done on various aspects of timeliness in financial reporting. Those studies are not summarized here but a listing is provided in the reference section for further research. © 2009 Springer US.
