  • Abstract: Corporate governance mechanisms have emerged to tackle agency problems and ensure that shareholders' funds are not expropriated or wasted on unprofitable activities. This paper aims to examine the effects of governance mechanisms of dividend, types of ownership structure and board governance on firm value and types of ownership structure and board governance on dividend. The paper utilises panel data analysis of firms listed on the Bursa Malaysia from 2002 to 2005. The results provides additional insight into effects of the governance reforms undertaken in Malaysia, which aim to tighten requirements for board independence, smaller board size and non-duality role.
