The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the impact of investment in Intangible Assets on the corporate performance of Indian companies for a period of twelve years from 2001 to 2012.
Intangible assets have been measured using the “Intangible Assets Monitor” method developed by Sveiby (1997).
The results of panel data regression model reveal that Intangible Assets affect performance of companies positively after controlling for firm size, age, leverage, physical capital intensity, market share, risk, industries and dummy year.
The study is of immense importance to corporate managers in improving managerial insight into the significance of investment in Intangible Assets. The results direct Indian managers to understand and realize the importance of Intangible Assets and keenly invest in research and development, technology, software, advertising, customer relationship management and human resources to further augment their performance.
Specifically considering India, the research related to the association between Intangible Assets and performance is undersized. Thus, the present study would contribute to the existing literature comprehensively.
