Methods of pension accounting and effects on shareholders equity : A study of Nasdaq OMX Nordic Stockholm Large Cap companies (English)
Abstract [sv]

Problembakgrund och syfte: Uppsatsens syfte är att undersöka huruvida det finns samband mellan pensionsredovisningsmetoder och volatilitet i bolagens Eget kapital. Enligt pensionsredovisningsforskningen finns samband mellan pensionsredovisningsmetoder och volatilitet i total Eget kapital. Enligt Amir skapar redovisning av aktuariella vinster och förluster mot Eget kapital (totalresultatet) upphov till volatilitet i Eget kapital. Syftet med uppsatsen är att undersöka om forskningen som påvisar detta samband även stöds gällande Large Cap bolagen i Nasdaq OMX Nordic Stockholm. Stämmer det att bolag som redovisar pensioner mot Eget kapital (totalresultatet) påvisar större volatilitet i Eget kapital än bolag som använder andra pensionsredovisningsmetoder? Detta är den grundläggande problemställningen i uppsatsen.

Metod: För att svara på syftet använder vi oss av bolagens årsredovisningar där vi undersöker vilka pensionsredovisningsmetoder bolagen väljer och volatilitet i total Eget kapital mellan åren 2006-2011. Dessa värden sammanställs i Excel och testas i statistikprogrammet SPSS.

Resultat och Slutsatser: Hypotesprövningen visar att det inte föreligger samband mellan volatilitet i Eget kapital utifrån de olika pensionsredovisningsmetoderna. Vår slutsats är att bolag inom Nasdaq OMX Nordic Stockholm som redovisar aktuariella vinster och förluster i Eget kapital (totalresultat) inte visar större volatilitet i Eget kapital än bolag som använder andra pensionsredovisningsmetoder.

Abstract [en]

Purpose:  According to research done in pension accounting, there is a connection between pension accounting methods and volatility in shareholders equity. Amir claims that full recognition of actuarial gains and losses in the balance sheet creates volatility in shareholders equity. The aim of the paper is to examine whether this connection between pension accounting and volatility can be confirmed among companies in Nasdaq OMX Nordic, Stockholm.

 Method: The volatility in Shareholders Equity is examined by researching the annual reports of the companies. Throughout the study, the statistics program SPSS is used.

 Analysis: Companies that use full recognition of actuarial gains and losses in the balance sheet are compared to firms that use other pension accounting methods. The level of volatility in shareholders equity among firms that use full recognition of actuarial gains and losses are compared to firms that use other pension accounting methods. The aim is to examine whether companies that use full recognition of actuarial gains and losses show more volatility in share holders equity.

Conclusion: According to our study, there is no relationship between pension accounting methods and volatility in shareholders equity. Companies in Nasdaq OMX Nordic Stockholm that recognize actuarial gains and losses directly to the comprehensive income in shareholders equity and debts does not show more volatility in shareholders equity than firms that use other pension accounting methods.
