Abstract

ABSTRACT The main purpose of corporate governance is to minimize agency cost derived from the separation of property and control (Weber, 2006). Managerial property is one of governance mechanisms used for minimizing agency cost; however, it also creates incentives for a manager who opportunistically manipulates stock price (Stein, 1989). When a firm possess a good corporate governance, the potential of its managers in performing earnings management related to unexpected compensation can be controlled by governance. Therefore, this study research aimed to examine the truth that corporate governance affects relationship between executive wealth sensitivity and earnings management, in which corporate governance was used as a moderating variable. Population of the study were firms listed by the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX). Samples were obtained by a purposive sampling technique using a 2005-2007 list period according to the predetermined criteria. Samples to be collected were 51 firms. Data processing was performed by a pooling method and resulted in 153 observations. Finally, analysis instrument used for testing H1 and H2 hypotheses was a multiple regression analysis. Analysis resulted in acceptance of H1 since there was a significant and positive relationship between executive wealth sensitivity and earnings management. The result also showed no significant effect of corporate governance moderating variable on the relationship between executive wealth sensitivity and earnings management, leading to H2 rejection. Keywords: Executive wealth sensitivity, earnings management, and corporate governance.
