In this study we investigate empirically the extent of the financial disclosure presented in the notes of IAS 34-compliant interim financial reports. Particularly, we observe, first, if there is an increase of the detail level of interim disclosure despite the compliance with the minimal requirements of the international standard. Second, we examine if the different degree of interim disclosure depends on some specific characteristics of firms such as company size, profitability, leverage, business and market risk. The sample used for the empirical analysis includes the half-yearly reports of 64 Italian listed companies for the period 2005-2009. The main results show that it is not found an increase of interim disclosure detail degree and that the large company size and a higher profitability play, at interim, a major role in the disclosure policy of firms.
Keywords: Interim disclosure, IAS 34, interim financial reporting, half-yearly reports.
