Abstract

The performance of a company can be affected by the financial risks associated with it. It is important for a company to manage financial risks efficiently. The purpose of this study is to identify the impact of financial risks on the performance of Apollo Food Holdings Berhad which is a food and beverages company for the period of 2014-2018. This study develops multiple linear regression models to analyse the impact of financial risk on company performance. The findings show that operating margin is the most significant variable that positively influence the performance of the company. This study suggests that Apollo Food Holdings Berhad should deal with their operating margin in order to increase the performance and profitability of the company. This can be done by increasing the revenue or reducing its cost.
