This research was specially to test impact of Return On Investment’s (ROI), Insider Ownership (INSD), Debt to Equity Ratio (DER) to dividend payout ratio (DPR) by the use of free cash flow (FCF) as moderating variable on manufacturing firm listed on Indonesian Stock Exchange (ISE) period 2005 until 2011. This research hypothesized that moderating variable had a positive influence to dividend payout ratio (DPR). Hypothesis testing was done by the use of linear regression model (OLS). Empirical result on panel A (without moderating variable) and panel B (with moderating) were simultaneously ROI, INSD, DER, FCF and moderated variable (FCF*ROI) had a significant impact to DPR. Meanwhile panel A showed an evident that DER variable and FCF had an impact to dividend payout ratio (DPR) and panel B pointed out that DER, FCF, FCF*ROI and FCF*INSD had a significant impact to dividend payout ratio (DPR). Based on moderated regression analysis (Panel B) FCF as moderating variable had an influence on the relationship between insider ownership and dividend payout ratio (DPR). It was seen in increasing R2 and Adjusted R2 in regression model before being moderated and after. It meant that FCF as moderating variable increased the contribution on model one which was proposed.
