ERICA Working Group
ERICA WG has published its document: "European non-financial listed groups: analysis of 2013 data" together with its annex "European non-financial listed groups: analysis of 2013 data - Annexes"
The study presents some highlights of European non financial listed groups, on profitability, financial structure and impact of fair value accounting on the consolidated accounts of the European groups included in ERICA database. ERICA (European Records of IFRS Consolidated Accounts), is a database, for internal use within the members of ECCBSO, composed of two datasets of around 1,000 European non-financial groups, fully representative of the stock markets of the countries participating in the project (Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Germany, Greece, Portugal and Spain). The data are obtained from publicly available financial statements, having been treated manually, by CBSO statistics and accounting specialists, to be fitted on a standard European format (ERICA format); this manual treatment means, in some cases, the interpretation of the original data, a constraint that readers of this document should bear in mind.
