Abstract

This paper examines the timeliness of financial reporting in the Russian energy sector and compares the days delay in reporting by Russian energy companies to days delay by non-Russian companies in the petroleum refining industry. The study found that Russian companies' delay in reporting financial information is significantly longer than that for non-Russian companies.
