Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine the relationships between profits and risks of Gamuda Berhad Company. This study was carried out using the secondary data which was obtained from the annual reports of Gamuda Berhad in consecutive years from 2011 until 2015. Return on asset (ROA) as the dependent variable has been used to study its relationship with the independent variables such as liquidity risk, operational risk and Gross Domestic Products (GDP). The enter method was used to obtain the correlation and regression result to observe whether the significance level of the risks do has the relationship with the profits. Based on the result attained, both internal (liquidity risk) and external risk (GDP) were positively significant. Another internal risk is the operational risk which has negative insignificant and the lowest impact to the company’s performance in terms of profits. Hence, the GDP has the highest impact among the other risks and the most significant in maximising profits of Gamuda Berhad Company.
