Monthly poll results: Should listed companies be required to report four times a year?
Companies in Europe now have more flexibility regarding the size and frequency of their financial reports, after the European Union scrapped the requirement for quarterly reporting at the end of last year. By contrast, quarterly updates remain a staple part of the US reporting landscape.
In our monthly online poll, we asked users of IRmagazine.com whether companies should be required to report four times a year – and more than three in five say yes. While the results are based on just 66 responses, they suggest many in the corporate community remain supportive of quarterly reporting obligations.
