This study focuses on the determinants of cash holdings in the period of 2003-2012 for Chinese manufacturing industry and how Chinese firms manage cash holdings. In general, when firms are more financially constrained, they are more likely to hold more cash. According to our investigation, firms with lower leverage, less net working capital (NWC), and lower capital expenditures, are more likely to increase cash holdings. In addition, China has different economic environment from developed countries, most of manufacturing firms are state owned; thus, the government policies influence the motivations of firms.
