  • Over the last few decades, a sizeable number of studies have examined the relationship between audit pricing model and corporate governance characteristics in developed economies (O'Sullivan and Diacon, 1994; Short et al., 1999; Peel & Clatworthy, 2001; Clatworthy & Peel, 2006; Yatim et al., 2006).

  • Authors: Muhammad Sori, Zulkarnain; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad (2009)

  • The efforts towards better corporate governance practices of firms in the Malaysian capital market were started by the Securities Commission (SC) as early as 1996 in three-phased shift disclosure-based regulations (DBR). During Phase 1 (1996-1999: Flexible/Hybrid Merit Based Regime), the emphasis was to regulate on disclosure, due diligence and corporate governance. Phase 2 (January 2000: Partial DBR) still focused on corporate disclosure, due diligence and corporate governance, but included focus on promotion of accountability and self-regulation. In Phase 3 (2001 onwards: Full DBR) the SC enforced high standards of disclosure, due diligence and corporate governance as well as exerci...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Albdwy, Feras Fathi; Mohd Rasid, Mohamed Eskandar Shah; Syed Salman (2014)

  • This paper examines the impact of working capital management on the firm's profitability using retun on equity as its core determinant. Using a sampe of ninety listed Malaysian Shariah-compliant and non-Shariah firms react differently to similar firm specific variables. By employing static panel data estimation technique, we document that although the Shariah-compliant firms are subject to certain restrictions, they still efficiently compete with their conventional counterparts in terms of profitability by sustaining a higher return on equity. This might be attributed to better management of their receivables as well as a higher and better inventory turnover as per our empirical resul...

  • Authors: Nahar, Hairul Suhaimi; Muhammad Sori, Zulkarnain; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad; Hassan, Taufiq (2012)

  • Prior research examining corporate governance issues across jurisdictional boundaries and market specificity (emerging and otherwise) have commonly adopted the functionalist approach of exploring governance implications towards specific economic phenomena covering among others, firm's performance and its reporting behaviour. These studies have utilized common research methods (often archival modeling) and theories (economic and management based) subscribing to the positivist paradigm in understanding specific research phenomena.
