We examine the relation between a broad set of corporate governance indicators and various measures of managerial decision making and organizational performance. Using a sample of 2,106 firms, we distill 39 structural measures of corporate governance (e.g., board characteristics, stock ownership, institutional ownership, activist stock ownership, existence of debt-holders, mix of executive compensation, and anti-takeover variables into 14 governance constructs using principal components analysis. We find that these 14 constructs are related to future operating performance, have a somewhat mixed association with abnormal accruals, Tobin’s Q, and future excess stock returns, and little relation to class action lawsuit and accounting restatements.
