No 727:
The internationalization of financial statements presentation : an empirical study of french groups

Huang DING, Herve STOLOWY and Michel TENENHAUS

Abstract: In a context of development of international capital markets, it seems to be interesting to question the adaptation of French groups to Anglo-American practices. The objective of the present paper is to illustrate the evolution towards the Anglo-American standards through the study of one aspect of the accounting methods: the financial statements presentation. Based on a sample of large industrial groups over a ten-year period, our survey confirms the trend.
