Abstract: The aim of this study is to examine the factors that influence the financial performance of Indian listed companies during the period ranging from 2010 to 2016. The sample size consists of 1598 companies listed in Mumbai Stock Exchange (MSE) in India. Return on assets (ROA), return on equity (ROE), profit after tax (PAT) and earning per share (EPS) are used as proxies for financial performance of Indian firms. The fixed effects regression model results revealed that the leverage ratio, liquidity ratio, size of company and company age have a significant and positive influence on the financial performance of Indian listed companies. The leverage ratio has a positive impact on return on equity (ROE) and negative effect on return on assets (ROA), profit after tax (PAT), and earning per share (EPS). The study recommended that managers should consider the leverage ratio in such a way that improves firms' financial performance. The current study provides useful insights for managers, analysts, regulators, investors, and other interested parties in the performance of Indian listed firms.
