  • 本研究以2008-2012年臺灣上市(櫃)公司之資料構建公司治理模型,檢驗公司治理在公司經營績效與公司風險間所扮演的角色,同時分析影響公司經營績效和風險之公司治理關鍵因子。

    This study established a set of corporate governance assessment indices for ex-amining the potential intermediary role of corporate governance in the relationship between firm performance and risk, and identified the key corporate governance var-iables that could affect both firm performance and risk based on 2008-2012 Taiwan empirical evidences.
    The research results indicate that corporate governance has a suppressed mediat-ing effect on the relationship between firm performance and risk, both during and af-ter the financial crisis periods. Moreover, especially during a financial crisis period, corporate governance had a negative moderating effect on the relationship between firm performance and risk; therefore, it acted as a risk buffer to protect companies.
    The empirical results suggest that corporate governance has a positive correlation with firm performance, and opposite correlation with firm risk for listed companies in Taiwan. Among corporate governance factors, annual general meeting participation, chairperson and CEO split, BOD composition, director compensation and discipline, director education and participation, information transparency, and social responsibil-ity and communication vehicles have significantly positive influences on firm per-formance, while annual general meeting participation, controlling shareholder rights, chairperson and CEO split, BOD composition, director compensation and discipline, and information transparency have strong and negative relationships with the firm risk.
    This study provides statement to resolve the flaws of prior studies and existing corporate governance rating indices by developing a relatively comprehensive gov-ernance assessment system that incorporates shareholders’ rights, board of directors, information disclosure, and stakeholders’ rights dimensions. Moreover, this paper is to research the impact of corporate governance on both firm performance and firm risk.
    The results shed light on the effectiveness of different aspects of corporate gov-ernance in terms of firm performance and risk. The findings suggest that companies should take into account both value creation and the control of risk when reconsider-ing the operation of corporate governance, and should give particular attention to shareholder participation, chairperson and CEO split, BOD composition, director compensation and discipline, and information transparency.
