Abstract

This study aims to analyze the effect of non-financial measures, independent board of commissioners, and audit quality on firm value, with the cost of equity as a moderating variable. The method used in this research is descriptive and verification methods. The data source is secondary data from the annual reports of manufacturing companies in the 2013-2016 period which are listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange as many as 97 companies with 388 companies. The results showed that there are non-financial measures of customer perspective and internal process perspective, independent board of commissioner, and audit quality significantly influence firm value. Cost of equity as a moderating variable makes the influence of the independent board of commissioner weak against firm value. While the growth and learning perspective variables do not really affect the firm value. Cost of equity strengthens the influence of non-financial measures customer perspective on firm value, while in the internal process perspective, growth and learning of non-financial measures and audit quality are weak. The cost of equity will strengthen variables that can support the wishes of shareholders and will weaken variables that are independent of board of commissioner and audit quality. Other results require large costs to increase firm value. Firm value can be increased by increasing non-financial activities, the number of independent board of commissioner shares and conducting audit quality by reducing the amount of cost of equity that can weaken the value of firm value.
