Executive Summary

If firm level corporate governance affects firm market value (the price of minority shares) or overall firm value, what are the channels through which it does so? Prior work in emerging markets provides evidence of an association between corporate governance and firm market value, more limited evidence of a causal relationship, but very little evidence on the channels through which governance may affect value, and whether the effect is only on share price, or on overall firm value. The authors first confirm the association between governance and value using panel data on Korean public companies over 1998-2004.
