ARIE RAHAYU HARIANI
In this study we investigate the value relevance of financial information in Indonesia and its association to advertising and promotion expenditures. We use 1993-2003 period as samples for the declining question and 2002-2003 period as samples for the advertising and promotion expenditure question and we use R2 of price level regression that is derived from Ohlson model (1995) as the value relevance measure.
Results did not show a decline in financial report value relevance—in contrary, it showed an increase—even after we excluded (i) new firms and (ii) firms that have negative earnings. Analyses on structural break showed that the increase happened in 1999-2003 period. The unconformance to hypotheses also found when we examine the association of financial information value relevance and the advertising and promotion expenditure.
