    1. Back to school for corporate governance

      Summer session is beginning at colleges and universities, and management experts say one of the offerings should be Corporate Governance 101. First in line to sign up, they say, should be Facebook Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. In the matter of Facebook, one of the more significant recent developments involves the Nasdaq Stock Market, which stated June 6 that it would offer $40 million in cash and rebates to clients who may have suffered financially in the company’s initial public offering.

      'Social loafers' impede board reform, ex-chairman says

      The Sarbanes-Oxley governance reforms did little to prevent failures of major U.S. financial institutions because they didn’t scale down oversized boards stuffed with “social loafers,” former U.S. mutual fund executive Robert Pozen says. Mr. Pozen told a Toronto audience Tuesday that the sweeping changes legislated in 2002 were inadequate to prevent scandals or failures at companies such as Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch, Lehman Brothers, Wachovia, . The changes required independent directors on bo

      Sebi calls for giving more power to independent directors
      MUMBAI: Stressing the need to strengthen the powers of independent directors, Sebi whole-time member Rajeev Kumar Agarwal today said good corporate governance is the surest way to protect the interest of shareholders.

    6. The art of chairing a board

      A former prime minister, not Canadian and whose name I’ll withhold, whispered into my ear before the board meeting of a bank: “Watch the way I chair this meeting, Richard.” Seeing a meeting chaired almost perfectly is a rarity, so I paid attention—and was not disappointed. Contrast this to another bank board meeting, where the CEO pounded the table, berating a mostly silent chair in front of directors. Both chairs are non-executive, supposedly independent, and yet these meetings played out very

    7. NACD study shows many corporate boards fail to reflect diversity

      According to the Boston Herald, “the National Association of Corporate Directors’ latest Public Company Governance Survey found that just 47.6 percent of nearly 1,300 stock-traded corporations polled had even one minority member on their boards last year.” That is an improvement over the 43.7 percent who reported minority board members in 2010. However, George Greenidge of the Boston-based National Black College Alliance believes corporations can and should do more. He remarks, “If these firms a

    8. Panel clears audit firms of Olympus scandal blame

      The scandal, one of corporate Japan's worst, had raised questions over the role of the two audit firms, which signed off on the accounts of the maker of medical equipment and cameras before the 13-year fraud finally surfaced in October. But the panel of lawyers set up by Olympus to look at the role of auditors said in a report on Tuesday that five individual auditors were responsible for 8.4 billion yen ($109 million) in damages. Olympus said later it was suing the five former and current indivi
