Abstract

disclosure for listed companies in Malaysia. The study attempts to address two research issues: (1) level of corporate governance disclosure by listed companies in Malaysia; and (2) to what extent corporate governance mechanisms affect company disclosure. Regression analysis is conducted to determine the association between corporate governance mechanisms and the extent of disclosure level in Malaysian corporate sector practices. The evidence supports the conjecture that companies with higher percentage of family members sit on the board are significantly have lower level of disclosure in their annual reports.
