The topic on cash holding has attracted strong debate in the field of financial management for the past half century. A number of researchers studied the topic corporate cash holding and its determinants in the past in developed economies while a little attention is given to the corporate cash holdings of developing economies. The objective of the study is to identify and measure the relationship of firm size, profitability, net working capital and leverage and their effect on corporate cash holdings. A sample of 30 textile firms of Pakistan listed on Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE) was selected for the study, for the reason of examining their relationship. Secondary data for the period 2006-2013 was selected for the study. Variance Inflation Test (VIF) was used to check the problem of multicollinearity. Multiple regression models were used to conduct the results. Results calculated by regression model show consistency with the literature available. Profitability (ROA) and firm size (FS) show a positive and significant relation with cash holding. However negative and significant relationship was found between net working capital (NWC) and leverage (LEV) with cash holding.
The findings of the study will be useful for financial managers, financial practitioners, consultants and investors.
