Abstract: This study aims to explore the mediating effect of R&D intensity (RDI) on the relationships between chief executive officer (CEO) duality, shareholding and firm performance. One hundred twenty-seven companies in the semiconductor industry are included in this study. Statistical approaches on three years of data (2006–2008) are used to examine the theoretical model. It is found that CEO duality and shareholding have positive and significant effects on RDI. On the contrary, CEO duality and shareholding have significant and yet negative effects on firm performance. In addition, RDI mediates the relationships between CEO duality, shareholding and firm performance. It is argued that the effect of RDI on firm performance is not easily predicted in areas of overspill or time lag, due to market competitiveness or time constraint. Suggestions and recommendations for future research are discussed.
