Abstract

L'objectif de cet article est double. Il s'agit tout d'abord d'identifier les facteurs explicatifs qui poussent les entreprises à opter pour l'activation des dépenses de recherche & développement1 (R&D) et d'examiner ensuite la pertinence du signal émis par de telle décision comptable pour les investisseurs. Les résultats montrent que l'activation constitue un outil privilégié dont disposent les dirigeants d'entreprises non plus pour signaler aux investisseurs les perspectives futures de leurs programmes de R&D, mais pour répondre de façon opportuniste à des enjeux contractuels dans le but de minimiser les coûts politiques ou encore pour lisser les résultats comptables. De plus, ces mêmes résultats indiquent que les entreprises françaises dont l'intensité de R&D est élevée ont tendance à passer les dites dépenses en charges en préférant la stratégie de communication sur la R&D à l'activation.
