This survey chiefly focused on the impact of plus adulthood, house size, and market to book ratio on debt adulthood construction of Pakistani non-financial houses. Harmonizing to the Capital Market thickness of Pakistan, this survey employed publically listed houses on KSE-100 index. Firms were evaluated based on several factors. All the listed non fiscal houses were taken and following stairss were adopted to carry on this survey:

3.1 Method of Data Collection

Secondary informations comprised on non-financial houses listed on KSE-100 Index, collected from the different beginnings i.e. Karachi Stock Market, Balance sheet analysis study published by State Bank of Pakistan for twelvemonth 2003-2008. The informations comprised on following variables: debt adulthood as dependent variable, plus adulthood, house size, and market to book value ratio as independent variables. Debt adulthood was measured by spliting debt maturating more so one twelvemonth to entire debt ; plus adulthood was obtained by spliting fixed assets to depreciation ; house size was takes as log of entire assets ; market to book value ratio measured as market value of house ‘s assets divided by book value of house ‘s assets.

3.2 Sample Size

Non-financial houses varied from each other on the footing of their capital formation. This research eliminated all those non-financial houses which had some incompatibilities in their fiscal informations. Sample of 58 houses was used from non-financial houses listed on the Kse-100index

## 3.3 Research Model Developed

Multiple additive arrested development theoretical accounts were used in this survey such as all variables were scale variables. One dependant and three independent variables were used. This survey chiefly focused on impact of independent variables on dependent variable. To fulfill the arrested development normalcy premise survey used transmutation on dependent variable and two independent variables, which finally gave the simple additive theoretical accounts as described below

Sqrt of DEBTMAT = I± + Ln of ASSETMAT ( I?1 ) + I?

Sqrt of DEBTMAT = I± + + SIZE ( I?1 ) + I?

Sqrt of DEBTMAT = I± + Ln of MV/BV ( I?1 ) + I?

Where:

Sqrt of DEBTMAT was house ‘s debt adulthood transformed ( Debt maturating more so one twelvemonth / Total debt )

Ln of ASSETMAT was house ‘s plus adulthood transformed ( Fixed Assets / Depreciation )

Size was steadfast size ( Log ( natural ) of entire assets )

Ln of MV/BV was house ‘s market-to-book ratio transformed ( Market value of house ‘s assets / Book value of house ‘s assets )

Aµ was error term

I± was the Changeless

## 3.2 Sampling Technique & A ; Procedure

Non-financial companies listed on the KSE-100 index selected for the intent of carry oning this research survey.

## 3.5 Statistical Technique

After roll uping the information from the selected population, it was analyzed by utilizing SPSS package to analyze the impact of dependant variable ( sqrt_Debt Maturity ) on independent variables ( ln_asset adulthood, house size, and ln_market to book ratio ) . The statistical technique Multiple Linear Regression was used to sort the variables that impact the debt adulthood.

4.1 Findingss and Interpretation of the consequences:

Table 4.1.1 shows R ; R squared, and adjusted R squared. R, the multiple correlativity coefficients, was the correlativity between the ascertained and predicted values of the dependant variable. Larger value of R indicated stronger relationships. Roentgen squared showed the per centum of divergence in the dependant variable explained by the arrested development theoretical account. Small values specify that the theoretical account did non in form with the informations good. Dependent variable ( Debt adulthood ) and two independent variables ( plus adulthood, and market to book value ratio ) were transformed to do the informations usually distributed. It shows that 38.9 % fluctuation in dependent variable ( square root of debt adulthood ) was due to independent variables ( log of plus adulthood, house size, and log of market to book value ratio ) .

Debt adulthood was important and positively related to plus adulthood in this theoretical account and if it changed by 1 unit so plus adulthood increased by 0.266 this consequence supported by ( Hart and Moore 1994 ) , ( Shah and khan 2005 ) , and ( Myers 1977 ) . Firm size was important but showed assorted positive support for debt adulthood in this theoretical account and it increased by 0.041 ; this was supported by ( Myers 1977 ) , ( Hoven and Mauer 1996 ) , ( Barnea, Haugen, and Senbet 1980 ) ; and growing options ( market to book value ratio ) was undistinguished in this theoretical account and reciprocally related to debt adulthood, and it decreased by 0.055 ; this consequence was consistent with consequences of ( Diamond 1991 ) , ( Titman 1992 ) , ( Myers 1977 ) , and ( Barclay and Smith 1995 ) .

4.2 Hypotheses appraisal sum-up

The hypotheses of the survey were typical fiscal features important impact on debt adulthood. These fiscal features were plus adulthood, house size, and market to book value ratio. In this survey each the fiscal characteristic tested and concluded the consequences.

## DISCUSSIONS, IMPLICATIONS,

## FUTURE RESEARCH AND CONCLUSIONS

In this survey, multiple additive arrested development analysis exercised to analyze informations collected from listed Pakistani non-financial houses for period 2003-08. Arrested development analysis used to mensurate the long term debt used by houses. Debt adulthood had taken as a dependant variable in the survey where as plus adulthood, house size, and market to book value ratio were independent variables to mensurate their consequence on debt adulthood.

## 5.1 Decision

This survey concluded that the most of import variables were debt adulthood, and plus adulthood. Harmonizing to this survey, these variables were most of import in the prediction/ expectancy of adulthood construction of houses ‘ plus and liabilities. Harmonizing to survey, plus adulthood played of import portion for the theoretical account to foretell the debt adulthood construction. Asset adulthood was positively impacted by debt adulthood. This survey confirmed fiting rule by demoing that slower plus depreciation means longer debt adulthood. These consequences were besides supported by Hart and Moore ( 1994 ) . Firm size was besides one of the of import variables for this survey, this survey found out merely small grounds for the bureau cost facet that debt adulthood used to curtail the struggles of involvement between portion holders and debt holders, these consequences were fiting with the survey conducted by Hoven and Mauer ( 1996 ) . These consequences were varied in assorted states, because there had been difference in environments and fortunes and houses make determination consequently, it besides showed that smaller houses employ shorter term debt so longer term debt, which was consistent with the consequences of Shah and khan ( 2005 ) .

There was an credence of growing ( market-to-book ratio of assets ) should be reciprocally correlated to debt adulthood in the agency/contracting costs perspective in this survey, these consequences were supported by Titman ( 1992 ) .

## 5.2 Discussion

All variables were considered to be in line with the literature, nevertheless, based on arrested development coefficients shown by many variables along with dependence job, the concluding theoretical account comprised of independent variables ; plus adulthood, and house size had important value of less than 0.05 which suggests that these variables important impact on the debt adulthood of non-financial houses listed on KSE-100 index. On the other manus, consequences besides revealed that market to book value ratio had important value greater than 0.05 therefore it may non needfully take to an impact on non-financial houses listed on KSE-100 index.

## 5.3 Deductions and Recommendations

This research was limited to the non-financial companies listed on KSE-100 index. The informations taken from 58 houses were taken through assorted sectors for the twelvemonth 2003-08. It was suggested that such type of survey should be carried out in other states of Asia as good, as to comprehensive thought about the debt adulthood construction. Furthermore, it besides suggested that other factors except 1s examined in this survey should be researched as to hone thought about the debt adulthood construction. Besides that, this survey could besides be replicated in other developing states.
