Firm’s performance is measured based on the accounting profitability which is used as a measurement of an effectiveness of the business operations. Working capital is a short-term investment or funds which used to ensure smooth firm’s operation. Working capital management (WCM) is important in order to manage and control the working capital which includes the current asset and current liabilities. On the other hand, working capital management efficiency (WCME) refers to the level of the way working capital is managed in order to get the maximum profitability. However, a study that combines these two financial factors are still lacking. Therefore, this study is conducted to measure the relationship and impact between WCM and WCME on firm profitability by focusing on 140 firms in the industrial sector listed on the main board of Bursa Malaysia within year 2006 until 2012. Through the result of multiple regression analysis (MRA) and panel least squares analysis conducted on WCM and WCME a positive significant relationship with the firm’s profitability was found. As for WCM only interest coverage ratio (ICR) and current asset to total asset (CATAR) have shown significant positive influence on firm’s profitability. Meanwhile as for WCME, only performance index imposed positive influence on firm’s profitability. Therefore, an effective working capital management and working capital management efficiency must be upgraded by all firms in this sector in order to ensure their profitability is constantly increasing and secure for the long term.
