Abstract: This study focuses on the use of non-GAAP by French companies (CAC 40) and its impact on the stock market controlling for corporate governance. Our main results are as follows. First, we find a complementary effect between residual earnings and non- GAAP for market valuation. Second, in the presence of good governance, the impact of the publication of non-GAAP (number) on the valuation of residual results decreases. This could mean an abundance of non-GAAP reduces its relevance. Corporate governance would substitute to non-GAAP measures (number) for residual earnings valuation. Third governance itself has a positive impact on residual earnings valuation. However, unlike the number of non-GAAP published, the level of detail (number of pages) is not affected by corporate governance in residual earnings valuation. This could be explained by the fact that the AMF advocates for a reconciliation of non-GAAP and IFRS financial data. Fourth, our results suggest that after a certain threshold, non-GAAP (number or pages) create asymmetry in equity markets.
