Abstract

The paper analyses the impact of the firm-specific factors on the profitability of the engineering industry of Bangladesh. This study used 22-year (2000-2021) panel data of a total of 13 companies of this industry. According to the findings of the study, the factors that have the most impact on a business’s capacity to earn a profit are its age, asset turnover ratio, and operating profit margin. Size and operating profit margin are two of the factors that have a positive impact on a company’s profitability. On the other hand, age and asset turnover ratio are factors that have a negative impact on a company’s profitability. The findings could be of use to a wide variety of stakeholders in assisting them in making decisions pertaining to this industry.

Keywords: Profitability, ROE, Total Asset, Age, Size, Return on Asset, Asset turnover, Operating Profit, Fixed Effect, Panel Data.
