Objective - This article aims to examine the influence of content dimensions of Organization Change Theory, such as CEO Expertise, Free Assets, Debt to Equity Ratio and Growth of Sales, on a company's turnaround ability when it is experiencing financial distress. The companies examined are listed on the Indonesian Stock Exchange (IDX).
Methodology – The population used in this study is companies from sectors excluding the finance sector that were listed on the Indonesian Stock Exchange between 2013 and 2018. The sample size was determined using purposive sampling method. From the 109 companies that experienced financial distress, 57 have successfully turned their business around. The research data was collected from the ICMD (Indonesian Capital Market Directory), which was then analysed using multi regression technique analysis, using SPSS software to examine the determinants of company turnaround ability.
Findings – The results indicate that CEO Expertise, Debt to Equity Ratio and Growth of Sales have a negative relationship on a company's turnaround ability. Meanwhile, Free Assets has a positive and significant relationship on a company's turnaround ability.
Novelty – Previous studies have been conducted in many western countries, giving rise to researchers' doubts about the generalizability of research based on previous research findings when applied in developing countries such as Indonesia, particularly due to differences in regulations, conditions of distress, culture, financial systems and strategies used in overcoming distress.
