This study aims to examine the relationship between financial performance with firm value with dividend policy as an intervening variable in an emerging market, Indonesia. The samples in this study are large firms listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX). The sampling method uses a purposive sampling technique according to research criteria, especially members of the LQ45 index. The study used the data analysis by using multiple regression analysis, path analysis, and Sobel test to find the direct, indirect, and intervening effect and significance in this study. The results indicated that profitability and activity have a positive effect, leverage has a negative effect, but liquidity has no effect on the value of the firms. The subsequent analysis shows that profitability and leverage do not affect dividend policy, liquidity has a negative effect, while activity has a positive effect, significantly. Dividend policy has a positive effect on firm value. Liquidity and leverage do not affect the firm value, but profitability and activity effect positively on the firm value through intervening dividend policy. Conclusions: in general, financial performance indicates an influence on firm value and less effect on dividend policy. As an intervening variable, dividend policy weakens the effect of financial performance on firm value.
