Working capital management is considered to be a vital issue in financial management decision and it affects both liquidity and profitability of the firm. Apart from using Pearson’s and Spearman’s correlation analysis, panel data regression analysis like pooled OLS model and fixed effect LSDV model are employed in the study. Like previous authors, our study results reveal a sturdy negative association between working capital management variables and firms’ profitability. The results of our study also indicate the better explanatory power of fixed effect LSDV model than that of pooled OLS model.
