here is the brief
For this assignment, you are asked to conduct an empirical analysis on the link between board structure & composition, and firm performance, using a sample of UK listed companies.
You are asked to work in teams of 4-5. Each team must select a sample of 30 UK listed companies from Morningstar Company Intelligence .For each of the companies, you are asked to collate data for the following variables and input these into SPSS:
1) Company size: Turnover, number of employees,
2) Company performance: ROCE, EPS, degree of internationalisation (% turnover derived from non-UK activities – from company facts report)
3) Board data: size of board, proportion of non-executive directors, CEO/chair duality, proportion of women directors, proportion of international directors
You are then asked to write report on the relationship between corporate governance characteristics and firm performance which should include:
a) An introduction to your report and your selected companies. and why u have selected the companies randomly. ( we have selected only from 3 industries)
b) A summary of descriptive statistics for key variables in your sample (min & max values, mean, standard deviation)
c) The results from statistical tests about the relationship between board variables and firm performance, controlling for firm size
d) A discussion of your results. Here, you should discuss which organisational theories best explain your empirical observations and what other explanations there may be for your results.
e) A concluding summary in which you put forward recommendations on corporate governance that can influence companies’ performance, including internationalisation.
I have done the data collection and analyzing. what I want is to read the results and like it with one of corporate governance theories.
