Corporate Governance and Quality of Earnings
82,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Well-known corporate scandals (e.g. Enron, Parmalat, Anglo Irish Bank, etc.), have moved corporate governance issues back into the limelight. Properly structured corporate governance is essential to ensure an organization's integrity and attract external capital at a reasonable cost. This book examines the efficacy of a firm's corporate governance and board structure in curbing earnings management and whether the effect changes in different legal contexts. This is done using a matched-pairs sample of companies listed in one common law country, the UK, and one code law country, Italy. It is reported that the strong corporate governance and board structure significantly reduce earnings management. The effect is stronger in Italy where these mechanisms act as an effective substitute for a weaker legal protection. The analysis of individual corporate governance attributes shows that institutional investor ownership is the most important feature of UK governance in terms of reducing earnings management, while the avoidance of CEO duality prevails in Italy. These results suggest that corporate governance is more important where the law cannot ensure an adequate investor protection.

Organising the Firm
117,13 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The theoretical basis of commercial law, corporate governance law, and corporate law is still unsatisfactory. There essentially is no theory of commercial law, and existing theories of corporate governance and corporate law cannot explain the behaviour of firms or the contents of existing regulation. This book proposes a coordinated solution for all three areas. The starting point is that all three areas deal with the organisation of firms. Commercial law, corporate governance, and corporate law are therefore studied from the perspective of the firm rather than that of the judge or the investor. Changing the perspective makes it easier to formulate an "umbrella" theory of commercial law, and theories of corporate governance and corporate law as applications of the main theory. The book provides examples of how the proposed theories work by studying legal corporate governance tools and practices that increase the sustainability of the firm. Sustainability can be bolstered by making the governance model more self-enforcing and ensuring that it fosters innovation.
