Recipients of these annual reports and accounts are expected to assess the overall performance of the organization as well as gaining an insight in the health of the business after closely studying the information items contained in the corporate report; for ensuring reasonable information disclosure, statuary provision are contained in schedule of Companies Act 1968, prescribing the minimum disclosure requirement which every limited liability companies must comply with. This is aimed at making more information available to users, to enable them make better investment decisions. However, what is the great concern is the failure of different steps aimed information disclosure. Therefore, in view of reaction on information disclosure shortcomings under the Companies Act of 1968, the companies and Allied matter Decree 1990, Section 334(2) enumerates various financial statement to publish by every company for all stakeholders, the extent to which stakeholders rely on them to make investment decisions and assess the company’s corporate performance.

However, in spite of compliance with this statutory requirements and provisions by companies, shareholders seem not to place much premiums on this provisions they tend to be mainly interested in the dividend declared, thereby loosing sight of other critical spheres, the earning capacity of the business in the same industry which will invariably spin management into better performance.
