Abstract

It is mandatory for companies listed on the Australian Stock Exchange whose reporting periods end on or after 30 June 1996 to disclose their main corporate governance practices in place during the reporting period: ASX Listing Rule 4.10.3. This study seeks to determine the extent to which Australian listed companies are disclosing their corporate governance practices by examining the annual reports of 268 listed companies.
