Abstract:

This research paper investigated the relationship between corporate governance and shareholders' wealth maximization among quoted manufacturing companies in Nigeria. In order to achieve the purpose of the study, three hypotheses were proposed and data collected from the annual reports and accounts of a sample of twenty manufacturing companies for a period of seven years spanning 2011 to 2017. While corporate governance was measured using audit committee size, board size and board composition, shareholders' wealth maximization was measured using market value. The data collected for the study were analyzed using multiple regression analyses. The research findings showed that an independent audit committee has a positive but statistically insignificant effect on shareholders wealth. The findings also showed that there is a positive and statistically significant relationship between the numerical size of the board of directors and shareholders' wealth maximization. Also, board composition had a positive relationship with shareholders' wealth maximization. From the findings, it was concluded that audit committee independence is not an important determinant of shareholders' wealth maximization. On the other hand, board size plays an important role in shareholders' wealth maximization. Similarly, the board of directors dominated by independent members also plays an important role in shareholders wealth maximization. It is recommended among other things that shareholders push for the increase of independent members in the board of directors.


Abstract:

In this study the restoration proposal has been given the Dede Sultan Turkish bath found in the province of Kastamonu, Turkey. At the same time while the bathing culture of Kastamonu and the province Kastamonu itself was mentioned, it also has given general information on the architecture of a Turkish bath. In the study of historical structures of Turkish baths, a problem we face is what might be considered as restoration decisions, were only given in consideration only to the Dede Sultan Turkish bath. The building is already being used as a Turkish bath, and it will be brought to its original state and will continue to be used as it is. At the end of the study when a restoration project is drawn, it aims to show research on what kind of decisions can be given for structures such as these. At the same time it also aims to bring light on how the Dede Sultan Turkish bath can be properly and accurately be repaired.
