Abstract

This study investigates factors that a affect corporate performance in Malaysia. The study utilized three measures of company performace - Return on Assets (ROA), Return on Sales (ROS), and Economic Value Added (EVA), to act as dependent variables in order to examine their relationships with the independent variables. The results suggest that signficant variables that determine Malaysian corporate success are ISO 9000, capital structure, company size and category of industry. In establishing the relationship between ISO 9000 registration and performance, all the three measures appear to have a significant positive associations with ISO 9000 registration. As for the relationship between capital structure and the performance measure, ROA and ROS have significant negative associations with capital structure. Other factors that determine Malaysian corporate success are company size and category of industry.
