Quotation in corporate boards : Is there an effect on companies' profitability? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet är att undersöka om tvingande kvotering kommer att ha en effekt på ROA och tillväxt för svenska bolag noterade på Large Cap.

Metod: Studiens metod är kvantitativ och har en deduktiv ansats. Författarna har gjort multipla regressionsanalyser i statistikprogrammet Stata.

Teoretisk utgångspunkt: Public Interest Theory, Capture Theory, Tvingande Isomorfism, Legitimitetsteorin och Humankapitalteorin.

Resultat och slutsats: Studien finner inte att andelen kvinnor i bolagsstyrelser har någon påverkan på bolagens finansiella prestationer i svenska bolag som är noterade på Large Cap, Nasdaq Stockholm. Studien finner att nyval i styrelsen har en negativ påverkan på bolagens finansiella prestationer.
