We also propose a financial structure approach in applying the discretionary accruals models; and document that the financial structure approach achieves far superior estimation performance than industry approach in terms of coefficient stability and robustness of discretionary accruals. We contribute to the literature because we propose new models which are theoretically sounder than the modified Jones model and document that the new models perform much more strongly than the modified Jones model empirically. 讲座人简介: Soon Suk Yoon, Ph.D., is Samil (Price Waterhouse Coopers) Distinguished Professor of Accounting at Chonnam National University (Korea).
