Abstract

This study examines the impact of working capital management on decisions concerning the extent of distribution of dividends. Results suggest that working capital management plays a role in decisions concerning dividend distribution in the Indian production firms. The findings of this study indicate that cash level has a strong impact on decisions concerning dividend distributions for Indian production firms holding higher cash balances compared with non-dividend paying Indian production firms. This study contributes to the literature on the factors that impact firms' decisions concerning the distribution of dividends.
