The population in this research is a consumer goods sector company listing on the Indonesia Stock Exchange. Sampling techniques using purposive sampling and data analysis methods using multiple regression analyses. The results showed that the macroeconomic factors had no significant effect on the company's performance. The company's significant characteristics are the debt level of the company. The company's debt level of leverage has a negative and significant impact on the company's performance, suggesting that the higher the company's debt will decrease the company's performance.
