Private companies are increasingly seeking investment capital from banks and institutions, and when they do so, are finding the spotlight focusing on their governance and internal workings.

Practical Corporate Governance: For Private and Smaller Companies is a guide for private companies seeking external capital or at a transitional phase, and smaller listed companies. It demonstrates how improvements in governance make it easier to raise capital through illustrative case studies and examples of best practice. It includes check lists and sample materials such as board minutes, providing readers with everything they need to implement the principles discussed.

This is an invaluable book for all directors and their professional advisors interested in developing their companies, increasing profitability and success.
