The researcher used the analytical method approach for a sample of 13 firms from the mining and extraction industry sector listed on the Amman stock exchange of the period 2010-2018.The model of simple line regression was used for testing the hypotheses of the study by using both programs of (E-views, STATA) in addition to both programs of unit root test and variance inflation factor to make sure of the data stability and no relationship between variables.

The study concluded the non-existence of the impact of financial leverage on the firm value and the relationship between the financial leverage and Tobin’s q scale was negative. However, there was an impact of each size and asset structure on firm value and the relationship between the natural logarithm of size and asset structure was positive with Tobin’s q.
