This study uses a quantitative approach. Sampling using the saturated sampling method. There are six cement companies that meet the categories as samples. Furthermore, Partial Least Square (PLS) is used for analysis and hypothesis testing for testing the profitability variable as a mediation. The results show that working capital that is managed effectively and efficiently can improve financial performance so as to increase firm value. The results of the mediation test show that profitability positively mediates the effect of working capital management on firm value.
