   MSC THESIS TOPIC:

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE AND FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE OF COMPANIES IN NIGERIA

 

Abstract

This research was aimed at looking at Corporate Governance, and financial performance of Companies in Lagos in Nigeria, Western Nigeria. Some of these Companies have come under spotlight for cases of mismanagement and a number of them have closed. The research set out to: establish the level of compliance with corporate governance guidelines, determine the relationship between corporate governance and risks, examine the relationship between risks and financial performance, as well as examine the relationship between corporate governance and financial performance of Companies in the Nigeria

 

To undertake this study, a sample of 63 was drawn from a population of 75 Companies in Lagos and a questionnaire distributed to each of the Companies, collected and analyzed. Findings revealed majority of the Companies had operated for a period up to four years only and none of them operated in more than 5 branches. A significant number of Companies were found to comply less with corporate governance guidelines, risk was found to be weakly and negatively correlated with corporate governance and financial performance where as corporate governance and financial performance were found to be strongly positively correlated.

 

The study concluded that less compliance with corporate governance as well as high risk levels may explain the relatively poor financial performance of these Companies. Companies were therefore advised to create awareness amongst the members regarding their rights as well as encourage Companies to implement and adhere to corporate governance principles, process and procedures among others. Further research should be done in corporate governance guideline implementation and Lending models among Companies.
