Summary/Abstract: Purpose – The answer to the question of whether there is a relationship between the institutional investors ownership stability and the level of both real and accrual-based earnings management in companies listed on Warsaw Stock Exchange. Design/methodology/approach – We use multiple regression analysis to identify the relations between institutional investors ownership stability and the level of both earnings management. We use the two-stage Heckman selection model to correct for any selection bias. Findings – We find a significant negative relation between institutional investors ownership stability and real earnings management but no relation between the former and accrual-based earnings management. Originality/value – Our paper adds to the literature on both earnings management and institutional investors as monitors. To our knowledge it is the first study of relations between institutional investors ownership stability and earnings management based on companies listed on WSE.
