corporate governance mechanism, board of commissioners, audit committee, profitability


This study aims to examine the effect of corporate governance mechanisms on the percentage of profits in manufacturing companies. The population in this study is manufacturing companies in the industrial & chemical sector, which are listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) during the 2017-2019 period. The samples were selected using the purposive sampling method and resulted in 34 manufacturing companies in the industrial and chemical sectors. Data were taken from the Indonesia Stock Exchange for the 2017-2019 period. The independent variable in this study is corporate governance with a focus on the board of commissioners and the audit committee, while the dependent variable is the effect of profit percentage on manufacturing companies. This study used simple linear regression analysis. From the regression analysis in this study, the two corporate governance proxies which include the board of commissioners and the audit committee have a significant positive effect on company profits. These results provide evidence that the existence of a board of commissioners and an audit committee in manufacturing companies in Indonesia has been effectively associated with the company’s profit percentage gain.
