A survey of the perceived usefulness of financial information disclosed on the internet to shareholders in Malaysia
AbstractFinancial information dissemination is the need of the hour in the globalised scenario for meeting the needs of shareholders. This research seeks to identify the perceived usefulness of statutory, voluntary information and audit assurance (AA) disseminated on the internet to the shareholders. This study is empirical in nature. A questionnaire was developed and the responses were collected from the shareholders in Malaysia. Perceived usefulness for shareholders (PSH) is the dependent variable and four independent variables were financial statement (FS), corporate governance (CG), corporate information (CI), and AA. Structural equation modelling was used to confirm the results obtained. The findings of the study are consistent with existing studies done in other countries.
