Abstract: Corporate governance has been a subject of intensive research efforts by scholars but with a distinct and overwhelming focus on U.S. and European firms. Using agency theory as a theoretical basis, researchers have studied the implication of ownership structure and diversification strategy on a firma??s performance in developed economies. Such studies in emerging market economies are comparatively limited. I integrate existing research on ownership structure, diversification strategy and firm performance in a study that looks at these issues for firms listed on Chinaa??s Shanghai and Shenzhen stock markets. The setting of China provides good opportunities to test the robustness of previous findings in a unique and changing institutional setting. I explore these issues using traditional measures of ownership, diversification and performance along with Rumelta??s classification of diversification strategy.
