Corporate Governance Scorecard – Versatile Tool for Companies, Investors, and Regulators. Experiences from Southeast Europe and East Asia

by The Global Corporate Governance Forum, March, 2011.

Companies with strong governance practices achieve higher market valuations. However, once good practices have been adopted, how can a board know whether its company remains on track? Where its strengths are? Its weaknesses? Are other companies doing better or worse? For many companies (as well as investors and regulators), scorecards are proving to be invaluable in providing a yardstick for measuring the level of fulfillment in implementing and monitoring corporate governance. This publication focuses on the lessons learned in developing and using scorecards effectively.

    “Companies with strong governance practices achieve higher market valuations”…well I am a strong supporter of improved governance but even I have to concede that the evidence for this opening statement is not strong. That is partly because of the difficulty of ascertaining which aspects of good governance matter and which don’t. It is partly because balance is an issue: a business run by a megalomaniac may achieve excellent results and investors may be prepared to overlook some poor governance. Again, it depends what elements of governance are poor. So, a poison pill defence is likely to depress shareholder value but paying the CEO outrageous amounts may not if the company performance is sufficiently strong.
