Capital structure determinants of industrial companies listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange

Leszek Czerwonka , Jacek Jaworski

Abstract

The aim of this study is to verify whether a company's capital structure depends on the share of fixed assets in total assets, the size and growth of a company, its profitability, liquidity and size of non-debt tax shield. The significance of the impact of various factors on the debt of a company was studied using linear panel models. Data for the analysis comes from the financial statements of companies listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange, belonging to the industry sector (sample size: 177). The research period is 1998-2012. Analysis of the data leads to the conclusion that shaping the capital structure of the studied companies is best explained by the pecking order theory. To the minor extent it is explained by the agency theory.
