Impact of Audit Committee Characteristics on Profitability of Food and Beverages Firms in Nigeria



ABSTRACT

This study examines the effect of Audit committee characteristics on profitability of listed food and beverages firms in Nigeria. The study adopted an ex-post factor research design and used Audit committee financial expertise and audit committee meeting as independent variables to represent audit committee characteristic. It used return on assets, return on equity and earnings per share as the dependent variables to represent profitability. Data were collected from the annual financial statements of ten food and beverages industries listed on the Nigerian stock exchange (NSE) over a period of five years from 2012 to 2016. Multiple regression analysis was used to analyze the data. The results were that there is a negative and statistical significant relationship between audit committee meeting and return on assets (ROA) and return on equity (ROE), while audit committee financial expertise has a negative but no significant relationship with return on assets (ROA and return on equity (ROE). It also shows that audit committee financial expertise and meeting were positive but insignificant to earnings per share (EPS). It was recommended that, since  this research is limited to audit committee financial expertise and audit committee meeting of food and beverages firms listed on the Nigeria stock exchange, this may be resolved by choosing other proxies such as audit committee independence and audit committee size.
