  • Corporate governance and postcolonialism: the experience of Sri Lanka
    • Authors: Athula Manawaduge, Anura De Zoysa, Kathy Rudkin
      Pages: 127 - 148
      Abstract: This paper explores the perceived adequacy of Anglo-American corporate governance reforms in an emerging market. Using a perception survey of Sri Lanka's corporate governance stakeholders, 277 questionnaire survey responses from five stakeholder groups in Sri Lanka are used in factor and regression analyses. This empirical study finds that adoption of best practice Anglo-American policies and regulations do not result in the perception of good corporate governance by stakeholders. The application of postcolonial theory offers an insight into this discrepancy. Current technical modes of investigation only replicate the modernity narrative. Policy setters and regulators should consider corporate governance as a cultural practice as well as a technical practice, to better serve stakeholder perceptions. This study introduces postcolonial theory as a means of cultural evaluation of corporate governance practices.
      Keywords: stakeholder; postcolonial; emerging markets; Sri Lanka; factor analysis; quality of corporate governance

  • Audit committee characteristics, board ethnic diversity and earnings
           management: evidence from Kenya and Tanzania
    • Authors: Athula Manawaduge, Anura De Zoysa, Kathy Rudkin
      Pages: 149 - 174
      Abstract: This paper investigates the relationship between audit committee characteristics, board ethnic diversity and earnings management in Eastern Africa. We attempt to determine whether compliance with audit committee guidelines has constrained earnings management in companies operating in an environment where control of corruption is considered weak. We include firm performance to the modified Jones model to measure discretionary accruals. The data are collected from annual reports over the period 2005-2014 resulting to a total of 480 firm-year observations. Panel data models are employed in the analyses. The results show that absolute discretionary accruals average about 11.5%, while the independence of the audit committee, the presence of a financial expert on the audit committee and board ethnic diversity were negatively and significantly related to earnings management. We also find that audit committee structures are not country specific.

  • Agency costs in US banks - have the factors changed post crisis?
    • Authors: Mahendra Raj, Rajesh Kumar, Sujit Sukumaran
      Pages: 175 - 200
      Abstract: This study analyses the effectiveness of the series of post-2008 regulatory reforms in the banking industry. The paper aims to identify and classify new measures of agency costs. The results suggest that agency costs have increased in the post economic recession period. Agency costs have increased for all banks irrespective of sizes. A new theoretical framework on behavioural lines is proposed for the manifestation of agency costs. The study suggests that four types of behavioural factors result in agency costs - self-enrichment, complacency, cover-up and risk affinity. Agency costs originate due to the self-enrichment behavioural nature of managers. The study provides insights to the fact that management behaviour may adapt to both the external and internal environment to facilitate agency costs. The study suggests that the new regulatory measures may not have worked well on expected lines or may have provided adverse incentives which would have increased agency costs.
      Keywords: agency costs; self-enrichment; complacency; cover-up; risk affinity

  • Transparency and microfinance institutions' risk in Sub-Saharan
           Africa
    • Authors: Haileslasie Tadele, Helen Roberts, Rosalind H. Whiting
      Pages: 201 - 226
      Abstract: Using a sample of 151 MFIs from 21 countries over the 2005-2014 period, we examine the impact of transparency on MFIs' risk in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). We use a three-stage least squares method to address the issue of reverse causality between transparency and risk. Our results indicate that SSA MFIs have low levels of failure risk and operate in a moderate business disclosure environment. We find that higher MFI transparency reduces Not-for-profit MFIs (NFP MFIs') financial and insolvency risk. However, greater transparency is associated with higher credit risk for both for-profit (FP) and NFP MFIs and increases FP MFIs' failure risk. Country-level business disclosure does not influence MFI risk. Overall, our results provide new empirical evidence identifying the difference between for-profit and not-for-profit MFIs' risk behaviour and highlight the impact of transparency on MFI risk.
      Keywords: microfinance institution; MFI; risk; Sub-Saharan Africa; SSA; transparency
