Abstract on Corporate Governance and Firm Performance

This study investigates the relationship that exists between corporate governance and  firm performance  of some selected companies listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange. The intent of the study is to determine whether corporate governance mechanisms-  CEO duality, board size audit committee independence, and ownership concentration  have an impact on  firm  performance  surrogated by  return on assets (ROA); return on equity (ROE), profit margin (PM). It provides empirical evidence  for fifty two (52) non-financial firms in Nigeria for a  period of 2003 to  2008. The  Generalised Least Square (GLS) regression is employed to  examine  the relationship existing between the variables.  The results reveal  that  board size,  audit committee independence, ownership  concentration have  a  significant relationship  with return on equity and profit margin. It  is also observed that  CEO duality has no impact on  firm performance.  The 
advocacy is for  the  Securities and Exchange Commission to take into cognisance industry specific effects before formulating codes of  corporate governance  that determine the characteristic  of the audit committee or the board structure.  Proposition is also made for  the
Corporate Governance Committee  of  companies to  endeavour to do a regular appraisal of their corporate governance compliance status so as to understand its effect on performance.
Keywords: Corporate Governance, Firm performance, Agency Theory, Agency Costs
