Differential reporting and the effect on loan evaluations : an experimental study
Kent, Pamela & Munro, Lois A. (1999) Differential reporting and the effect on loan evaluations : an experimental study. Accounting Forum, 23(4), pp. 359-377.
This study utilises a mexed design laboratory experiment to test the impact of differential reporting on one group of external financial report users-lenders. The results indicate that the judgments of bank loan officers' assessment of the ability of a borrower to repay, are not significantly affected by differential reporting (in this case, presentation on non-GAAP financial reports compared to GAAP financial reports). However, bankers request additional information from borrowers when non-GAAP financial reports are presented.
