Abstract:

This study aims to examine the influence of capital structure towards firm value. The sample of this research consists of 101 manufacture companies listed in the Indonesian Stock Exchange during the period 2012 - 2015. The results of this study indicate that the higher the capital stucture with Debt to Equity Ratio (DER) and Long term Debt to Asset Ratio (LDAR) are indicators of a higher firm value, while lower Long term Debt to Equity Ratio is an indicator of a lower firm value. The study has found a positive correlation between Debt to Equity Ratio (DER) and Long term Debt to Asset Ratio (LDAR) to firm value, and a negative correlation of Long term Debt to Equity Ratio (LDER) to firm value. However, the capital structure with Debt to Asset Ratio (DAR) did not seem to have an influence on the firm value.
