The Effect of Firm Specific Factors on Lessor Financial Performance in Egypt (panel analysis)
This study attempts to identify some of the firm specific factors that might have an impact on lessor financial performance after the application of EAS 49 and the Financial Leasing and Factoring Act (Law 176 of 2018). Numerical data were collected for five years during 2016-2020 from financial reports obtained from the Egyptian Financial Regulatory Authority (FRA). Study sample comprised 43 observations. The dependent variable is the firm financial performance signified by total debt/total equity, earnings per share EPS, return on equity ROE, asset turn over, return on capital employed ROCE, current ratio, return on assets ROA, and total debt/total assets. The independent variables are sales, financial liabilities, EBIT/operating profit or loss, and financial leased fixed assets. The study used pooled model, fixed effect model, and random effect model. Results indicate the sales, financial liabilities, EBIT/operating profit or loss, and financial leased fixed assets have an effect on lessor financial performance after the application of both IFRS 16 equivalent of EAS 49 and the Egyptian Financial Leasing and Factoring Act (Law 176 of 2018). The data is accurate and complete. The length of the study period makes it possible to track progress of lessor firms. This study tries to identify the impact of some firm specific factors on lessor financial performance after application of EAS 49 and Financial Leasing and Factoring Act (Law 176 of 2018). Thus, this study is a modest contribution to better decision making of investors, creditors, lessors, and lessees.
