Abstract
By analysing China's venture capital-backed listed companies between 2002 and 2013, this paper investigated the impact of the reputation of financial intermediaries such as lead underwriters and audit institutions on the role of venture capital firms in the earnings management during the four IPO stages. The empirical result shows that venture capital has significant grandstanding incentive. The reputation of audit institutions can significantly restrict the impact of venture capital on earnings management only in the lock-up period, unlock and presale period of stock. The reputation of lead underwriting does not restrain the opportunistic behaviour of venture capital firms, and even enhances the impact of venture capital firms on the real earnings management in the year of IPO.
