    Abstract

    Cette recherche détermine la mesure dans laquelle les dirigeants adoptent un comportement myopique d'investissement en R&D ; défini comme l'ajustement intentionnel des investissements de long terme dans l'objectif d'atteindre des résultats sur le court terme. Cette recherche s'interroge ensuite sur la propension qu'a eu la réduction de discrétion managériale en matière de comptabilisation des dépenses de R&D (lors de l'adoption des normes IFRS) sur la gestion réelle des résultats par l'investissement en R&D. Les résultats montrent que les dirigeants ajustent intentionnellement à la baisse leurs investissements en R&D pour atteindre le résultat bénéficiaire et dans une moindre mesure le résultat de l'année précédente. La réduction de l'investissement en R&D pour atteindre le résultat bénéficiaire est légèrement plus prononcée sous le référentiel IFRS.
