Corporate governance can increase the performance of the companies. The companies that have good performance tend to maintain the existing of board of directors. This paper is aimed to assess the influence of companies performance and governance to a normal or abnormal replacement of board of directors (turnover) at state own companies in Indonesia.

This paper would investigate at the internal corporate governance mechanism which represented by the independentboard of directors and external corporate governance would be represented by a political interest and leverage. The paper confirm two issues. First, that a company’s performance influence the consideration in determining the board replacement. Second, there has been no proof that management entrenchment at state own companies influence the board replacement. The research shows the  shareholders use return on asset/sales as a performance measurement considered prior the replacement of board member. The higher return on sales, the greater possibility the board replacement would be done on a normal turnover.
