Akhmadi Akhmadi, Dabela Yunia, Robiyanto Robiyanto


This study aims to examine the role of profitability as a mediating variable on the effect of company growth on debt policy. The samples were companies of textile and garment sub-sector listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange in the 2014-2018 period. The results show that asset growth (AG) did not affect the debt to equity ratio (DER). In addition, return on asset (ROA) was found to have a positive effect on the DER. Meanwhile, the ROA could not mediate the effect of asset growth on the DER.
