The findings of the study were that:

2.The annual reports do not reflect inflationary effects in the country today.
3.The financial reports were prepared adapting a general purpose nature with the assumption that different user as of the report have different information needs.
The following conclusions were made:
Although investors and performance evaluation analyst relied on financial statement in their decisions and appraisal, the reliability of financial report especially during inflation cannot be assured owing to the historical cost convention used as a basis for asset valuation by banks.

Therefore, managerial decision of banks based entirely on financial reports will lend to poor and inadequate decisions.
