Corporate Board Meetings and Company Performance: Empirical Evidence from Nigerian Quoted Companies

Edem Okon Akpan

Most literatures on corporate governance concentrated much on board composition or size as a measure of involvement in monitoring management, while another dimension of board oversight such as board meetings is ignored. This study examined the relationship between frequency of board meetings and company performance using a sample from 79 companies listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange from 2010 to 2012. The result shows that the board meetings, directors` equity and board size are negatively significant. Audit committee meetings are positively significant while gender diversity and board age are not significant measured with ROE.
