Abstract/Summary

Corporate governance plays a major role in the sustainability of a company. This research work looks at the relationship of different corporate governance factors such as ownership concentration, board size, board gender diversity, and CEO duality, to the financial performance of the publicly listed firms in the Philippines from years 2011- 2015. The aforementioned corporate governance factors are said to control agency costs, which affects company's profitability or non profitability. However, in this study, the researchers look at financial performance in three dimensions profitability, efficiency, and liquidity. The shared leadership theory is also adopted, a particularly novel approach that goes beyond traditional board leadership research which delved solely on structure. This theory puts a spotlight on the human side of corporate Governance by examining the leadership processes and behaviors inside the boardroom. The researchers found a positive relationship between board size and a firms profitability. Moreover, a positive relationship between ownership concentration is found to a firms liquidity. It is noted that the company's leverage, as measured by the debt ratio, is seen to have a negative influence on a firms liquidity. Lastly, CEO duality is determined to have a positive relationship when it comes to a firms efficiency.
