Abstract

In the modern era of financial management, effective cash management plays a critical role in ensuring the stability and growth of companies across various industries. Understanding the factors that influence cash holdings has become a subject of substantial interest for researchers and practitioners alike. This study aims to explore the intricate relationship between four key financial variables, namely the current ratio, coal price index, debt to equity ratio, and return on assets, and their impact on the cash holding decisions of PT Adaro Energy Indonesia during the 2018 – 2022 financial years. By examining these interrelated factors, this paper offers valuable insights into the dynamics of corporate cash management, providing a foundation for strategic financial planning and decision-making. The results of the study found that all independent variables have a simultaneous but no partial effect on cash holding.
