— This paper studied the correlation between earnings per share and stock price from 2005 to 2008 of AB-share listed companies in Shenzhen, and then examined value-relevance of accounting earnings before and after accounting standards change. The study found that before 2006, the value relevance of earnings prepared in accordance with China Accounting Standards lower than the value relevance of earnings prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standards. After the implementation of new accounting standards in 2007, the value-relevance of accounting earnings in Shenzhen A-share listed companies has increased, while the differences of value-relevant in AB shares decreased.
— Accounting standards change, value-relevance of accounting earnings, dual-list shares.
