The objectives was to find empirical evidence of the influence fi­nan­cial d­e­cisions, firm size, and owner­ship structure on firm value in the three economic con­di­tions (before, during, and after the crisis). The model was used mul­tiple reg­ression. The study was con­duc­ted in 1992–2008 with samples of 78 public com­pa­nies and 1084 datas. The results explained that company size and de­cision not to pay dividends were most af­fected varia­bles. In addition, policy not to pay dividends had negative ef­fect on firm value. There were also significant differences of company value. For public companies, company's size should be considered. Po­li­cies of paying cash dividends could be con­sidered in order to increase company value.
