On the migration of corporate governance practice: the case of institutions and CEO salary disclosure in corporate Africa
This study examines the differential impact of the quality and structure of institutional environment on proportions of boards comprised of social elites in business group constituents as opposed to unaffiliated firms. Using a unique sample of 173 private sector initial public offering (IPO) firms from 17 emerging African economies we find business group constituents are associated with higher proportions of social elites in board roles and levels of executive pay. This is inversely moderated by formal institutional quality and positively moderated by patriarchal informal institutions.

Abstract

This study examines the differential impact of the quality and structure of institutional environment on proportions of boards comprised of social elites in business group constituents as opposed to unaffiliated firms. Using a unique sample of 173 private sector initial public offering (IPO) firms from 17 emerging African economies we find business group constituents are associated with higher proportions of social elites in board roles and levels of executive pay. This is inversely moderated by formal institutional quality and positively moderated by patriarchal informal institutions.
