The Impact of Capital Structure on the Financial Performance of the Jordanian Industrial Companies Listed on the Amman Stock Exchange for the Period 2012-2015
The purpose of this study was to identify the effect of the capital structure as a percentage of total liabilities to total assets on the financial performance of the Jordanian industrial companies listed on the Amman Stock Exchange for the period 2012-2015.
The study population included all the Jordanian general industrial companies listed on the Amman Stock Exchange. The sample of the study included 10 industrial companies listed on the Amman Stock Exchange. The linear regression analysis was used to test the relationship between variables using the ordinary least squares method (OLS).
The results showed that there is a positive significant impact on the capital structure of the industrial shareholding companies listed in the Amman Stock Exchange as measured by the ratio of equity to total assets, return on equity and return on assets and net earnings per share as an indicator of financial performance.
The results also showed a negative significant impact on the capital structure of industrial shareholding companies listed on the Amman Stock Exchange as measured by total liabilities to total assets, return on equity and return on assets as an indicator of financial performance, and net earnings per share as an indicator of the financial performance indicators.
