Three categorized researches have been conducted during the research period ; (i)empirical researches on strategic information disclosures, (ii)analyses of the relationships between management and shareholders/debt holders, and (iii)empirical studies on the pricing at the capital market. Several research results acquired listed below.
(1)Reviewing the past 25 years empirical accounting studies, the trends and characteristics of Japanese empirical researches were explicated.
(2)In the multi-period principal-agent model, (pure) residual income could only be objective-consistent to motivate the manager to take first-best investment decision and first-best effort level on ordinary work when expense-revenue matching accounting is required.
(3)By clarifying that the implementation of new standard for current price evaluation of securities brought both benefits and costs to the listed companies, the possibility of failure of the accounting standards system were pointed out.
(4)Analyzing usefulness of accounting earnings and cash flow information of both ordinary and financially stressed companies, it was confirmed that operating cash flow information retained more explanatory power for stock prices than current earnings information.
(5)As a result of the analysis of timing of annual earnings announcements in parent and listed subsidiary companies, there were stock prices reactions of subsidiary/parent company at the earnings announcements of the consolidated/subsidiary company. It became clear that timing of annual earnings announcement had affected the information contents.
(6)The precision of earnings forecast had been significantly improved in the companies with normalization of a stockholders general meeting and the improvement of the precision of earnings forecast was not derived from the earnings management behavior.
