报告摘要:

We investigate whether board characteristics, and audit committee formation and characteristics are associated with firm performance. Since agency theory suggests that well-governed firms perform ralatively better than pooly-governed firms, we propose that firms having large-sized, independent boards and audit committees would perform better than firms without these characteristics. Using Greek publicly traded firms as sample and a two least-squares regression, we find that those with large-sized boards performed better, but those with independent boards performed poorly. We also find that firms with small-sized and independent boards tend to form audit committees, but we find no association between audit committee and performance. Our findings have policy implications.
