Article wins award for accounting research


Panos N. Patatoukas, associate professor at Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley, received the 2017 Notable Contributions to Accounting Literature Award, an AICPA-sponsored award presented at the American Accounting Association Annual Meeting.

The award, which also includes $2,500, recognizes work that has withstood a screening process based on criteria such as originality, breadth of potential interest, soundness of methodology, and potential impact on accounting education.

Patatoukas's winning article, "Customer-Base Concentration: Implications for Firm Performance and Capital Markets," appeared in The Accounting Review in 2012 and investigates whether customer-base concentration affects supplier firm fundamentals and stock market valuation. His research concentrates on interdisciplinary capital markets, with a focus on bridging the gap between academics and accounting practitioners.
