This study aims to explore how the value of companies in this sector is shaped by financing policies, such as leverage, and their ability to generate profits, namely profitability. Additionally, the research investigates the influence of company size on firm value. The urgency of this research is highlighted by the crucial role of audit performance in driving strategic efforts by companies to enhance their value. Sampled from the years 2020-2022 and drawn from companies listed on the stock exchange, the population consists of 26 companies. Purposive sampling was employed to select a sample of 19 companies in the D222 sector. The data was analyzed using multiple regression in SPSS version 27. The findings suggest that financing policies, specifically leverage, do not significantly impact firm value, whereas the ability to generate profits, namely profitability, has a significant positive effect on firm value. Company size does not seem to affect the increase in firm value. However, the role of Audit Quality as a moderator yields varying results. In terms of the relationship between financing policies, namely leverage, and firm value, Audit Quality does not appear to strengthen it. Similar results are found concerning the relationship between the ability to generate profits, namely profitability, and firm value. However, Audit Quality seems to enhance the relationship between Company Size and Firm Value. These findings provide valuable insights into the interplay of these factors within the processed food industry in Indonesia, aiming for dominance in the global market.</p> Kartika Ayu Kinanti Imanita Septian Rusdianti Ria Septiani Rina Mudjiyanti Retno Cahyaningati Copyright (c) 2024 Bulletin of Management and Business https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2024-04-05 2024-04-05 5 1 28 36 10.31328/bmb.v5i1.313 COMPLEXITY OF PURCHASING DECISIONS: THE ROLE OF BRAND IMAGE, VIRAL MARKETING AND PURCHASE INTEREST https://v3.publishing-widyagama.ac.id/index.php/bmb/article/view/311 <p>In the era of globalization and intensifying market competition, purchasing decisions have become crucial in product or service marketing strategies.

The research utilizes Smart Partial Least Squares (PLS) for data analysis. The study concludes that while brand image does not significantly influence purchasing decisions, viral marketing and purchase interest positively and significantly impact these decisions.</p> Ayu Nareswari Yuliatin Azizah Copyright (c) 2024 Bulletin of Management and Business https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2024-04-05 2024-04-05 5 1 37 46 10.31328/bmb.v5i1.311 E-COMMERCE: VARIABLE MODERATION IN MARKETING STRATEGIES ON PURCHASING DECISIONS https://v3.publishing-widyagama.ac.id/index.php/bmb/article/view/310 <p>This comprehensive study delves into the intricate dynamics of marketing strategies and their influence on consumer purchasing behavior concerning UMKM MakEpa Frozen in Lumajang City.

The digital era is increasingly shaping a group consistently exposed to online information and interactions, while internet infrastructure in both regions is developing. The impact of eWOM on students' perceptions, preferences, and behaviors, especially in terms of selecting educational institutions, and social interactions within the campus environment are explored. The findings of this study provide insights for educational institutions and students to optimize the benefits and manage risks related to the eWOM phenomenon in specific local contexts. A sample of 284 individuals was selected using probability sampling techniques, and data collection was done using validated and reliable questionnaires. Data analysis techniques employed include partial analysis and multiple regressions. From the analysis results, it is concluded that Electronic Word of Mouth significantly influences purchasing decisions, with pricing also playing a crucial role in product purchasing decisions. Competitive pricing indicators emerge as the most influential in purchasing decisions. The higher the level of eWOM, the higher the decision to visit consumers, and vice versa. This conclusion implies that creating positive eWOM can increase the number of purchases for companies, and price management influences purchasing decisions, especially in the context of online shopping platforms such as Shopee.</p> Hafidza Nash’ul Amrina Marsuhin Copyright (c) 2024 Bulletin of Management and Business https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2024-04-06 2024-04-06 5 1 97 106 10.31328/bmb.v5i1.314
