Abstract: This study aims to examine the effect of four variables, which include independent commissioners, audit committees, institutional ownership and managerial ownership as a proxy for the corporate governance mechanisms on financial distress. This was carried out on the manufacturing companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) in 2016-2018. The samples were selected using the purposive sampling method and 224 data were obtained. The hypothesis in this study was tested using logistic regression. The results showed that independent commissioners have a negative influence on financial distress, while the audit committee, institutional ownership and managerial ownership have no effect. This implies that an independent commissioner functions as an effective supervisory mechanism to prevent a company from experiencing financial distress. Furthermore, two control variables used in this study, namely leverage and profitability, were able to produce results as predicted. It was discovered that a higher leverage level leads to a greater possibility of experiencing financial distress and conversely, the higher the profitability of a company, the lower the probability of experiencing financial distress.
