The Value Relevance of Fair Value Disclosures in Australian Firms in the Extractive Industries

Hassan, Mohamat Sabri bin, Percy, Majella, & Stewart, Jennifer D. (2006) The Value Relevance of Fair Value Disclosures in Australian Firms in the Extractive Industries. Asian Academy of Management Journal of Accounting and Finance, 2, pp. 21-41.


We investigate whether fair value information is value relevant within Australian firms in the extractive industries. From 2005, the Australian accounting standard on financial instruments, AASB 139 Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement, requires measurement of financial instruments based on fair values. This study provides evidence that net fair value information is value relevant. However, the significance of net fair value is limited to the recognised financial instruments and some settings. Further analysis provides evidence that the explanatory power of net fair value and the unrealised gain or loss beyond the book value and earnings valued at historical costs is very low.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
