Abstract

The recent wave of corporate fraud has raised substantial concerns about the
effectiveness of corporate governance in Malaysia. This study determines whether
fraud firms reduce their executives' remuneration to improve the firm's performance
and also to discipline the executive directors' behaviour so that they do not deviate
from the shareholders' wealth maximizing policy. The sample of this study consists
of 136 firms which comprise of 68 fraud firms that experienced fraud revelation over
the periods of2001 to 2006 and 68 non-fraud firms. The results from the independent
sample t-test analysis reveal that there is a significant difference in the median
executives' remuneration between fraud and non-fraud firms in the second year after
the fraud revelation. It is found that fraud firms reduced the executives' remuneration
by 6% while non-fraud firms still increased the executives' remuneration by 8.08%.
Further analysis shows in the fraud and lawsuit firms' turnover. we find that the new
appointed executive may be paid at a lower rate compared to the other executive
directors in non fraud and lawsuit firms.
