The sample is 21 companies whose data completely and issued the Islamic bond during the period 2012 until 2018. Moreover, the panel data regression was employed as an analytical tool to test the data.
Main Findings: The results suggest that Islamic bond issuance and financial leverage have a negative influence on profitability, firm size has no significant influence on profitability, and economic growth and inflation rate have a positive influence on profitability.
Applications of this study: A firm, as well as an investor, must consider the lower Islamic bond issuance and debt proportion. Besides, they should anticipate decreased economic growth and the inflation rate.
