It is commonly known that companies issue equity when the market values are high and repurchase when the market values are low. Using the yearly financial statements from 2001 until 2015, with the exclusion of 2008, for 136 non-financial companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX), this study analyzed the existence of equity market timing with the consideration of equity and debt market variables using an econometric approach of panel data regression. This study adopted net equity issues as dependent variable. For the independent variables, this study adopted variables that reflect equity market condition: price-to-book value, market, profitability, and debt market variable that is interest rate. This study found that the variable affecting the net equity issues is profitability, while price-to-book value, market, and interest are not found to have a significant relationship with net equity issues. This shall imply that the companies issue external equity when the companies' profitability is good regardless of the valuation, and high interest rate. The findings of this study supported the existence of equity market timing shown by the significant relationship between variable profitability and net equity issues. Keywords: Capital structure, equity market timing, Indonesia, net equity issues, non-financial companies.
