Abstract: Regional financial performance could influence the attitude of shareholders and of the investors. It is important as it provides information about the entities that act in the area and about the factors, qualitative: like auditor type or quantitative such as individual financial elements that have an impact upon financial performance. Using different approaches for financial measures, a panel research was conducted upon the entities listed on Bucharest Stock of Exchange that have to apply as compulsory the International Financial Reporting Standards accounting regime. The results provide mix evidence: in some geographical regions (North East and South West) there is indeed a higher financial performance upon return on assets and upon cash flow indicator (North East variable), while in other regions (Central region and Bucharest Ilfov region) a lower financial performance is obtained (for cash flow indicator and return on assets).
