The data was collected from the financial statements and annual reports of 101 non-financial companies listed on Ho Chi Minh Securities Exchanges (HOSE) during the period from 2008 to 2011. The data was processed by using STATA software with GLS regression technique. The regression results showed that CEOs ownership is the most important factor that impacts on the firms value.
