We also compare patterns of late-year adjustment of quarterly earnings between ITC and non-ITC companies. ITC firms appear to have shorter financial closing times and seem to have a reduced probability to exhibit late-year earnings reversals.</p> Mingjun Zhou Miguel Aguirre-Urreta Copyright (c) 2019-12-01 2019-12-01 23 2 21 26 10.19030/rbis.v23i2.10337
