Average Accounting & Governance Risk (AGR®), receiving an AGR score that places them in the 83rd percentile among the approximately 8,000 companies in North America rated by Audit Integrity, indicating higher accounting and governance risk than 17% of the other companies.
What does this mean>? I take it that it means HL has higher accounting risk greater than 17% of companies but it's in the top 83% of the ones rated? Poppycock! Who pays for AGR's scoring card anyway?
