Abstract

This study makes usage of CIV (Calculated Intangible Value) and ICE (Intellectual Capital Efficiency) to measure IC stock and flows respectively. It applies static panel data models, to study the influence of IC on companies ROE (Return-on-Equity), ROA (Return-on-Assets) and ROS (Return-on-Sales) ratios. The research utilizes a sample with data for the 1,000 biggest companies in Brazil from the Maiores and Melhores annual survey database, covering the period between 2000 and 2005.

Results found suggest the existence of a positive relation between both CIV and ICE and the dependent variables ROE, ROA and ROS.
