In today's developed corporations, because of multiplicity of owners, direct monitoring of managers' performance is impossible, but this group only realizes the released benefits. Therefore, it is reasonable that they use governance mechanisms, for monitoring and optimal controlling behavior of hired managers. One means in reaching this purpose is rewarding managers based on their performance and motivating them, in accordance with the firm's purposes, in the manner discussed in the agency theory.
The main purpose of this paper is to examine the agency theory implications to isolate market determinants of board of director's bonuses, on the basis of data collected from Tehran's Securities Exchange (TSE) market for 1378 to 1382. For this purpose, by utilizing a regression model, board of director's bonus for selected corporation, were related to some accounting and market-based performance measures as well as some fixed variables (with respect to performance) such as the firm's size and the ownership concentration.
The results at the level of all corporations suggest that there is a significant relationship between Return on Assets (ROA) ratio and its changes, firm's size, ownership centralization, financial risk and board of directors' bonus. At the industry level, both the firm's size and ROA ratio were used more than the other selected variables. By substituting "changes in bonus" for the bonus itself, the explanatory power of the model used, was weakened. In this stage, the only variable that is significantly related to changes in bonuses is the ROA ratio.
